Republic Wireless now open to all

So here's the deal:

You buy a $260 phone (some entry-level Motorola Android phone) and get unlimited everything on Sprint's 3G network for $19/month. The catch is that you agree to use WiFi for data and voice (the phone supports WiFi calling) whenever possible.

Sounds like a good deal to me. And unlike Solavei, you won't have your friends spamming your Facebook with their attempts at marketing.

Ultimately, it's not for me, but I know plenty of people that would jump all over this.

It's an innovative approach and I hope that they see success with it. But I'm not a fan of CDMA carriers due to their limited phone selection. But there is hope. With LTE, they can ideally accept limited unlocked Android phones that pass their wifi certification within a few years. We'll see.

Many companies are looking at extended wifi as the future of wireless communication, specifically in the unlicensed white space bands.
