Republic Wireless was founded in 2011, and is an MVNO that operates on both the Sprint and T-Mobile networks, but not on both simultaneously. In fact, when you subscribe to Republic Wireless, you’ll have service almost exclusively on one network or the other. Republic Wireless does support domestic roaming, but for voice only. Which network will be the main network that you have service on will depend on your location and may automatically be chosen for you at signup.

Besides operating as an MVNO on the Sprint and T-Mobile networks, Republic Wireless also operates over WiFi.  In fact, the MVNO is a WiFi first based provider.  Calls are automatically routed over WiFi when WiFi is available.  When the WiFi signal is weak or unavailable, Republic Wireless uses what it calls adaptive coverage with bonded calling to provide service.  The technology is used to blend both WiFi and cellular data networks together to provide subscribers with the best voice quality possible.

Text messages can also be sent over WiFi.  You can use your Republic Wireless service to place calls and texts from your PC, MAC or tablet by downloading the appropriate Republic Anywhere app for your device.

In March of 2021, it was announced that the Republic Wireless brand and its subscribers had been acquired by the DISH Network.

Money Back Guarantee

If you subscribe to Republic Wireless and find that their coverage is not living up to your expectation, they offer 14 day money back guarantee.
