Page Plus Cellular is offering highly competitive plans

It has taken me some time to finally find a prepaid wireless provider that can effectively meet all of my needs. This provider is Page Plus Cellular, and if you discount the negative reviews that are poorly written or wrongfully lay blame on the company, you have a phenomenal service.

Page Plus' flagship plan, The $55 plan, gives you unlimited calling and texting and 1GB of data which is sufficient for a decent amount of usage on a smartphone. In fact, I average about 600MB. You also have the advantage of 3G speeds on Verizon Wireless.

Page Plus is also competitive on coverage and it has the best coverage in the lower 48 states and Hawaii. T-Mobile might have a little better reach into Puerto Rico and Alaska but it's continental US coverage didn't quite meet Page Plus'.

Finally, Page Plus' customer service representatives are US-based and the company is providing jobs to Americans.

I highly recommend that anyone looking for the best balance of services provided, investigate Page Plus Cellular as a good option.

Page Plus Is An Option People Should Not Overlook
by: PrepaidWirelessGuy

You know, this is a great observation. I’ve been following Page Plus for years now, and it never ceases to amaze me how competitive their plans really are. They’re rarely first to market with any new or aggressive pricing or program, however, they ultimately do follow along with competitive pressures.

It’s actually interesting how they take baby steps. For example, they will slowly add more voice minutes or increase their data bucket allowances, or even slowly decrease the price of their plans. While they’ll likely never receive any awards for innovation or speed to market, they can certainly teach carriers how to grow profitably.

Of course, I don’t actually know how profitable they are. Nonetheless, they appear to have a strategy of moderate follower (as opposed to fast follower). I expect they carefully test the impact of a change in pricing, and carefully manage their cost structure. Of course, this has a direct impact on their ability to grow more quickly, however, for a company that doesn’t have deep pockets like Sprint or others, it certainly seems like a wise strategy.

There was a time when Page Plus would flash and activate phones from other compatible carriers (even smartphones), and when this wasn’t very common for carriers to support. It’s become much more vague as to what phones will work, and if they do, what features may or may not work (like data!), so I’m not sure that we can say that they have a competitive advantage at all in that respect.

Overall, I think Page Plus is generally lacking in awareness of its brand. I don’t even know if they have much of any retail presence, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen an ad. I’m sure they’re doing marketing; perhaps it’s just not where I live, work, play, or shop.

Anyway, if they are in fact nicely profitable, I expect that they’ll continue to be a good option that people most definitely should not overlook despite the general lack of brand awareness.
