Tello is the newest MVNO in the USA and the first to offer A La Carte plan pricing with “No Fees, Whatsoever.” With plans starting at just $5/month and a “No Fees, Whatsoever” promise, Tello aims to innovate and challenge all other providers in the wireless market.
With Tello, “No Fees, Whatsoever,” literally means no fees. There are no activation fees, overage fees, processing fees, service fees, port in fees or early termination fees. Thank to their A La Carte pricing, customers can design and build their own personalized no contract cell phone plan to best fit their individual needs. Don’t need data? Don’t add data to your plan. Just want voice, and no texting? That is an option too. Maybe you just want data only? With Tello, you have the option to do just that, to build your own plan, exactly how you want it, exactly how you need it. Did I mention there are no fees?
Tello also offers Pay as You Go service for those who don’t want a monthly cell phone plan. Simply deposit a few dollars into your Tello account and you won’t need to make another deposit again, that is until you completely use up all of your credits. Just remember to use your phone for a call, text, or a download once every 6 months to keep your account active and to not lose your credit. PAYGO rates start at 3¢ per minute, 1¢ per text, and 2¢ per MB of data. International calling is also available and starts at just 1¢ per minute for calls to Mexico and Canada. Those on an A La Carte plan can add PAYGO to their customized plan as well to take advantage of international calling.
What’s The Difference Between Tello and All Other MVNO’s In The USA?
Tello says the things that separate them from the rest include their “No Fees Whatsoever” policy, low monthly plan prices, free tethering, and a real and friendly customer care team that is available by phone 24/7.
To see the Tello difference in action just compare them with Ting Wireless, another Sprint MVNO with A La Carte pricing.
So, you want a plan with Ting? Before you even build your own plan, you’re already paying a $6 per month device service fee. You pay that every month, but with Tello’s no fees promise, you pay $0. You want an unlimited talk and text plan? With Ting, that’s not even an option, but you can get a plan with 1000 minutes, and 2000 texts for $26 per month. Don’t forget to add on that device service fee of $6, so now that plan is $32 per month. Oh yeah, there are taxes too!
With Tello, you can get unlimited talk and text for $18 per month. That’s it! No hidden fees, nada! You can add 1 GB of data to that plan for just $11 more, for a total bill of $29 per month ((sales tax may apply depending on where you live)). With Ting, you pay $19 for 1 GB of data! So your 1,000 minute, 2,000 text with 1 GB of data plan is going to cost you $51 per month! Ouch! That’s not so cheap! But that’s the No Fees Whatsoever Tello difference for you!
Tello’s innovative rate plan and customer-first model is very exciting. I think the straightforward offers and approach to how they do business will resonate in the market , – Scott Kalinoski, Vice President Sprint Wholesale Solutions
