PlatinumTel (my employer)

It’s only fitting that my first post be about the place where I spend 50+ hours a week. PlatinumTel Wireless.

What is PlatinumTel Wireless, you might ask.
We are a nationwide provider of prepaid wireless service, offering the least expensive pay as you wireless plan in the U.S. The company was founded in 2001 by 3 entrepreneurs who saw the future of wireless going to prepaid. Man, were they right! They have a lot of firsts under their belt too. They were the first to offer an online activations system, even before all the big carriers. They were the first to offer an option for customers to add airtime online. They were also the first to offer customers the option to ad airtime with as little at $10.

PlatinumTel Now.
2010 marked some very cool things for PlatinumTel. We partnered with embee mobile to offer customers free airtime through Facebook. The biggest announcement came when we released our Real Paygo service. It’s the cheapest pay as you go wireless plan in the US. Customers can talk for only $.05 per minute, text for only $.02 per message, or surf the web for only $.10 per megabyte. We also offer an Unlimited plan that give customers unlimited talk and text with 100 MB of web for only $50 per month.

What’s on the horizon for PlatinumTel?
Soon you will see some very cool new devices, including Android. The first arrives in late November, the Sanyo Zio. It will be our first Android phone,running on Android 2.1. Look for more Android phones, as well as cool plans and features.

Don’t believe that we have the cheapest rates around, compare for yourself:
