Republic Wireless Kills Fair Use Policy

Unlimited that's really unlimited

You may not have heard of Republic Wireless before, but it is an interesting new mobile carrier that offers unlimited data, voice, and texting for $19 monthly, the service is contract free as well. Some people read the fine print and found the convoluted fair use policy that actually made that unlimited data limited in some instances.

As you might expect people weren't happy about that and the backlash was swift. Republic Wireless has now announced a complete about face. Rather than tweaking that fair use policy, they just dumped it. They no longer have a fair use.

That means you can pay your $19 monthly and then gabble all the bandwidth you want without fear of paying more or being throttled. The service should be launching in earnest early next year. Nice to see a company turn around on fair use like that.
