Smartphone offer may be too good to last
Unlimited cellphone service for $19 a month? Really? That’s the plan from Republic Wireless, a North Carolina company that’s trying to set a new standard in dirt-cheap communications. I’m skeptical that they can stay in business at this price. Indeed, a posting on the company’s own blog concedes that their business model may prove unsustainable. But for now, Republic’s delivering the best bargain in wireless communication relying on a hybrid approach similar to Google Voice or Skype.
