WiFi access and availability have grown significantly over the last decade, with the number of hotspots increasing over 30-fold to nearly half a billion broadcast WiFi hotspots globally.
Since the inception of Republic Wireless, we’ve continually provided a better experience over WiFi. We’re taking another step forward today by announcing FREE access to 30 million nationwide Republic Verified WiFi Hotspots. This new feature is designed to help our valued members save even more money each month by reducing their cell data usage when on-the-go. Additionally, for our members on our popular Talk & Text plan, they will now have more seamless access to data on-the-go via easily accessible WiFi hotspots nationwide.
It can be frustrating being in an area with no cell signal and lots of WiFi Hotspots but no way to connect to any of them. Now, when you’re out and about we’ll automatically and seamlessly connect you to nearby Verified WiFi Hotspots that are part of our network and meet our standards for internet connectivity and fidelity of signal strength. By partnering with a leading national provider of WiFi Hotspots, you’ll gain access to both premium and open wireless networks when they’re available and have access to your calls, messages and data.
