Page Plus expands coverage area and reduces roaming charges – USA

Page Plus, an MVNO operating on the Verizon Wireless network, has recently expanded its coverage area attributable to the merger of unrelated carriers, which was announced in June 2008 and finalised in January this year. As a result, Page Plus has been able to provide service in all parts of the USA, including the Central Plains states where there was a lack of coverage prior to the merger. Additionally, Page Plus has eliminated the roaming charges in the expanded coverage areas.

Commenting on the development, Dean McDowell, Chief Financial Officer of Page Plus, said: “Whenever you can have a wireless merger of this magnitude result in positive benefits for the customer, it enhances the customer experience. It reassures them that they have made a good choice in going with prepaid phone service in general, and Page Plus in particular. We are very fortunate to have such a good working relationship with our partner carrier, and we believe our customers will feel very good about the fact that they now have more freedom to use their Page Plus cell phone across the country."
