Republic Wireless, a network that is a division of Bandwith.com, will begin offering unlimited data plans to customers with Android handsets on Nov 8.
“You are OS-SIS-Set in Stone. You’re 21st Century technology married to a 20th Century business model. But we’ve moved on. We don’t just want wireless. We want stringless,” said the Republic Wireless in a press release.
“We’re responsible adults. We drive cars. We vote. We can definitely join together to make a new kind of wireless network. One for us. One, in fact, that is us. In other words, we have our own operating system. It’s called freedom, and it works,” the company added.
The new plan will be an unlimited voice data plan that combines both VoIP and cellular voice services.
It will also offer users the ability to place VoIP calls over Wi-Fi and switch to a traditional cellular connection when Wi-Fi is not available, according GigaOM.
“The company is going to buy wholesale minutes from third-party carriers such as Sprint. Bandwidth.com could easily use other wireless carriers as its wholesale partners,” said the technology site.
Republic Wireless will offer the one of the first truly unlimited data plans without caps.
There is a similar service being offered by Unlicensed Mobile Access that allows users to place calls over both Wi-Fi and traditional cellular connections.
Republic promises to have their own proprietary system for handling the new plan and service.
Android powered hardware will be compatible with Republic’s plan, according to 9to5Google.
