Consumer Cellular improves AARP plans – USA

US MVNO Consumer Cellular has enhanced its offers to the members of the AARP, an organisation formerly known as the American Association of Retired Persons. Four plans of the six currently offered to members of AARP by Consumer Cellular will benefit from a greater number of minutes and text messages for no extra cost; for instance the Anywhere 200 plan will be renamed to Anywhere 250 to reflect the increase. AARP customers will automatically be upgraded to the new plans.

Howard Blyck, Senior Vice President of Lifestyle Products for AARP Services inc, commented: "Consumer Cellular has always appreciated the basic service needs of some of our members and has committed consistently to making flexible cell phone service available to them at affordable rates. Given the current economic environment, we are pleased that Consumer Cellular is offering even more value to the AARP's nearly 40 million members."

John Marick, Chief Executive Officer of Consumer Cellular, added: "Consumer Cellular provides simple and straightforward cell phone calling plans that best suit our customers' needs. By providing additional minutes to select plans, AARP members across the country can further enjoy the freedom and convenience of wireless service with simple phones, affordable plans and no contracts."
