2014-02-12 15:43:16 - UppWireless Leads a New “All You Can App” Mobile Generation
New York, NY (February 12, 2014) – UppWireless (www.UppWireless.com) launched today in the U.S., giving users the mobile phone services they want at the lowest cost on the market. No longer reliant on their wireless carriers, UppWireless users pay as little as $15/month for everything they need --- talk, text and data --- while slashing their wireless bills by over 75%. With the world’s only all-IP, SIM-based mobile phone service, consumers get super-fast 4G Internet access, liberating them to use the apps they love and communicate the way they want all at an amazingly low cost.
UppWireless, an extension of the cloud-based UppTalk communications app (OTT) that provides users free, unlimited calling and messaging to any phone in the U.S.
and Canada, continues to disrupt the traditional wireless carrier business and drive the evolution of mobile services. Since its U.S. release in December 2013, UppTalk’s user base has grown by more than 50% month-over-month.
“People don’t want more carrier minutes or texts. They want the electricity to power the apps they love and use only the services they need. We meet this need head-on by enabling your favorite communication tools instead of replacing them,” says CEO Jochen Doppelhammer. “If you want to use Snapchat, use Snapchat. If you want to check Facebook, check Facebook. Finally, users can say goodbye to their wireless carrier because apps are the new mobile phone. UppWireless is the only solution that gives people the power to access whatever apps they want, where they want, and how they want. We do mobile differently. This is the UppMovement.”
"All-IP based mobile phone services are poised to revolutionize the mobile telecommunications model and dramatically lower the cost of running telecommunication services and network,” says Bruno Ducharme, chairman and former director of several mobile telecommunications companies. “The launch of UppWireless is a true win for consumers who are voicing their desire for a new generation of mobile dialogue.”
With the cost of cell phone service of each of the top four nationwide carriers in the U.S. averaging $138.25/month (according to a Q4 2013 study by Cowen and Company) it’s not surprising the UppMovement --- a revolution rooted in peoples’ desire to transform their beloved apps into the only mobile experience they need --- is growing rapidly.
UppWireless offers the following simple plans with no hidden fees or contacts. All plans also include unlimited calls and texts to any phone in the U.S. or Canada, ultra-cheap international calls and one of the three data plans
1 GB data @ 4G speeds for $15/month
Unlimited data with 3 GB @ 4G speeds for $35/month
Unlimited data with 5 GB @ 4G speeds for $55/month
Being SIM-based, users have the option to either use their own unlocked GSM smartphone (AT&T or T-Mobile) or to buy one for a great price through the UppWireless webshop which includes iPhones starting at $575 and Android options starting as low as $249. We offer also monthly payments via Bill Me Later.
The entire portfolio of available UppTalk powered devices with free, unlimited calls and text via wifi to any phone in the U.S. and Canada can be viewed directly in our webshop that is powered by our partner GSM Nation at www.shop.uppwireless.com
When combined with UppTalk, UppWireless users get everything they need --- text, talk and data --- at the lowest cost available. Says Doppelhammer, “We’re on a mission to make mobile communication free, unbound, and limitless. The UppMovement is here.”
