Another mobile carrier in the States? Well, we can't really complain
about increased competition, now can we? With the MVNO library growing
by the month (seemingly, anyway), here's another to consider: Voyager
Mobile. After a slight delay, the startup is now "taking orders,"
offering such phones as the Samsung
Galaxy S II and Epic 4G Touch. It's
offering a nationwide network, which allows customers to actually earn
goodies by talking. Best of all, wireless plans of unlimited nature
start at just $19, with no contracts and "no gimmicks." That $19+tax
plan includes voicemail, unlimited talk and unlimited text within
America. $39+ tax (per month, of course) gets you 3G/4G internet access
as well. On both, you can keep your existing phone number.
The company's currently only selling to a handful of states right now,
but they plan on expanding soon. Places like DE, AL, OR, SC, SD, TN, VA,
WA, WV, MN, NH, NJ and IL can take advantage right away. Beyond that,
there's not a lot to say, and that's the point: no fills, just cheap
mobile access. Hopefully it's a sign of things to come.
