Moto X Lands At Republic Wireless For $299 With New Service Plans

We were effusive in our acclaim over Republic Wireless’ astonishingly inexpensive mobile service, and the company is making more headway in the mobile market now that it’s added the Moto X to its offerings.

The Moto X (review here), which you can snag for $299 through Republic Wireless, brings a higher-end handset option to the service and should pull in many more customers than the old $249 Motorola Defy XT. You can opt for a black or white version of the new phone.

Republic Wireless Moto X

Along with the availability of the Moto X, Republic Wireless is launching its new service plans. You still don’t need a contract, and you can change up your plan up to twice per month if you need to scale your options up or down. Plans start at $5 per month for unlimited WiFi-only talk, text, and data; $10 will get you the same, as well as unlimited calls and texts. The $25 plan offers unlimited everything over WiFi and 3G, and for $40 you can get unlimited everything over 4G.

This is a ridiculous deal; adding in the cost of the Moto X, you could have an attractive smartphone option and unlimited 4G connectivity for a paltry $779 a year or, extrapolating over the span of two years, you’d pay $1,259. That’s a steal compared to most unlimited plans even with a subsidized handset, and with Republic Wireless you’re not locked into a contract.
