A new company called Republic Wireless launched today, offering customers unlimited voice, text, and data for $19 per month. Republic Wireless uses a combination of cellular data and Wi-Fi to pass VoIP-based calls through the internet rather than through traditional voice networks. Republic calls the technology "Hybrid Calling." In order to use Republic Wireless's services, customers have to purchase a modified version of the LG Optimus Android smartphone. Start-up costs are $199, and includes the smartphone and first 30 days of service. Thereafter, users can continue month-to-month with no contracts, no overage fees, and no early termination fees. Though Republic operates on both cellular and Wi-Fi networks, the company clearly wants most customers to use Wi-Fi most of the time. Based on Republic's web site, customers who use their Republic service over cellular networks too much may eventually be referred back to a standard cellular service. Republic leases network access from Sprint.

Great Idea!

Great Idea! You've got to love creative ways people think of to get new business' going. BTW.... after reading through their website, they are using Sprints network.
T-Mobile was on that track no too long ago with their UMA and the Nokia 6085.
Republic is polishing it up quite well.
Regardless you are pushed to Wi-Fi for the majority of usage.
Depends on the subscriber and what their needs are.
Let us see how ...
