We’re Taking this Show on the Road

At Republic, we think a little bit differently – and we bet you do, too. Unlike other carriers, who want you to use more data and spend more time on your phone, we want you to spend your time (and money) experiencing everything life has to offer. We believe your smartphone should empower your life – by helping you keep in touch with the ones you love, getting you from point A to point B, and reminding you of the events you have coming up. All too often, though, we see smartphones dominating our lives – and we don’t want that for you.

We aren’t just the folks who brought you Republic Wireless. We are travelers and dreamers, adventure-seekers and idealists. We believe in the beauty of living life outside our phones, face-to-face with family and friends, and we want to share this vision with others who believe in the same things we do. So, we’re taking this show on the road!

Starting in January 2018, we’ll be bringing this vision to life by hosting a series of unique and thoughtfully designed dining experiences with Republic members and non-members alike. No, phones won’t be allowed at the dinner table. We want to use this time to build true connections, experience something incredible, and build memories together. You’ll meet other members like you, rub elbows with local celebrity guests, and get to know some of the team behind Republic. Not to mention, you’ll enjoy a dining experience unlike any other you’ve had before.

Right now, we have two experiences planned:
January 25, 2018 – Provo, UT
February 1, 2018 – Durham, NC

If you live in or near one of these cities, keep your eye out for an official invitation in your email inbox in the coming weeks!
If you don’t live in these areas, never fear – we need your help deciding where to go next! In the form below, let us know where we should come next, and why we should host a Device-Free Dinner in your city.

  1. Driving on the wrong side of the road? Or is RW going international?

  2. Good catch! I wish we were traveling abroad, but not this time…

    I’ll pass if that’s who will be driving us to dinner.

  4. If you do a dinner in Fayetteville, AR, Tulsa, OK, or Joplin, MO, I’ll try my best to make it to the dinner (as my schedule allows). The University of Arkansas is in Fayetteville, so that might be a good place for Republic Wireless to go to outside of the dinner anyways.

  5. Great ideas, thank you! Be sure to submit your favorite in the form on the page! :grin:

  6. Umm. Before the photo was replaced, it was on the wrong side of the road. No perspective trick. I’m highly confident that it was a photoshopping accident (it’s easy to mirror when editing and not correct later).

  7. And easy to overlook when proofread and reviewed prior to publication?

  8. I liked when I was in Croatia and could simply dial my family in New Orleans as long as I was on wi-fi. How great!

  9. Actually, that’s not the wrong side of the road. They’re driving in the right-hand lane on the right side of a four-lane highway.

  10. djda says:

    You’re late to the party. The picture was corrected yesterday.

  11. There’s nothing wrong with the picture. The van is driving south. Great idea - it’s late December!!

  12. Wish I’d thought to save a copy of the image prior to being flipped to the correct orientation for the US only market.

  13. Of course I didn’t see the original image but as there are no road signs and solid white lines on both sides of “the road” I’m guessing that this is a private road or more likely, a test track. If there were solid white and yellow lines at the edges of the roadway it would be a different story.

  14. Believe the image prior to the fix was mirrored and upside down. As I remember the van appeared to driving in the left two lanes of a highway as in the UK and many other countries and it was heading towards the top of page. Highway likely in NC and the lack of signs makes the scene more serene.

  15. Come on to Detroit! The city is on the move, building and getting brighter after decades of… less.

    And while you are in the neighborhood, make another date a bit to the north, in Ferndale or Royal Oak, Michigan. A bit younger and more tech-connected overall, but ready to learn how to use mobile tech - smarter, for less money.
