Real Paygo Offers a la Carte Prepaid Services Less Than Half the Price of Competitors, at 5 Cents a Minute for Talk, 2 Cents per Text, 10 Cents per Megabyte for Mobile Web

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - May 20, 2010) -  PlatinumTel Wireless, a nationwide prepaid wireless provider that operates on a 3G Network that reaches 280 million people, is announcing the Real Paygo plan, an a la carte prepaid wireless plan that offers the most competitive rates in prepaid cell phone service and provides consumers 100% control of services used.

"Real Paygo offers wireless users the best value and flexibility and doesn't force them into a commitment or services that they don't need or use, as many unlimited plans on the market do," says CEO of PlatinumTel, Omar Ahmad. "Additionally, the plan offers the most competitive pay-as-you-go rates in the industry. Currently, Real Paygo prices come in at less than half that of competitors' prepaid programs, continuing PlatinumTel's goal of offering affordable wireless plans for everyone's needs."

Real Paygo features include:

  • 5¢ a minute for talk
  • 2¢ per text message
  • 10¢ per megabyte for mobile web
  • 10¢ per picture message
  • Plans are available in $10, $20, $30, $50 and $100 increments. The $10 plan provides 90 days of service and the $100 plan is good for 365 days
  • Free long distance
  • Free on-network nationwide roaming
  • Free voicemail, caller ID, call waiting, 3-way calling

"This revolutionary plan provides consumers an offering that has been missing in wireless, as it complements the 'all you can eat' plans that don't meet the needs of a large segment of the population," says Ahmad.

Real Paygo will be made available on Monday, May 24th, 2010. The PlatinumTel website will reflect the new plan on this date.
