Republic Wireless) took to the sidelines and announced a new agreement they have made with a GSM-based wireless carrier. France divulged information that the MVNO will soon be selling a new, top-of-the-line Motorola GSM-based device by March or April.
Speaking to the audience, France promised that apart from the new smartphone, the MVNO will also be introducing an improved "next generation" version of their Wi-Fi calling service. When asked to give further details about the launch, the executive declined to comment.
Republic Wireless is a three-year-old MVNO that has been able to provide a number of Motorola devices operational on Sprint's network. With its announcement today, they will be offering service from an anonymous GSM-based carrier.
Another announcement made by the executive had something to do with handset financing plans. By April, devices may be purchased through an unnamed third-party payment vendor. Those with a suitable credit score may be able to get a phone through monthly installment instead of paying an upfront price.
With these announcements, Republic is doing its job to expand its distribution and marketing. The company indeed has high hopes for 2016 to be the MVNO's "coming out" year.
