Founded in 2017, digital-first phone company Wing is offering an affordable wireless alternative to the major phone carriers like Verizon and AT&T. Wing offers its users nationwide service, including 5G coverage, as well as a range of phone plans including Unlimited, 5GB, 2GB, and 1GB. Wing Tel states that its average user’s bill is $35.
“We created Wing because we wanted a simple and transparent wireless experience,” Wing CEO and Founder David Arabov explains. “One that could be easily managed through an app and doesn’t lock users into contracts or pricey and hard to understand bills.”
Wing’s easy-to-use app allows users to pay their bills as well as track and change their plans month to month. Wing Tel’s website states that there are no contracts or long-term commitments, and users can choose to bring their own phone or get a new one. Wing’s Chief Strategy Officer, Greg Dybec, adds, “Nobody wants to waste time in a phone store anymore. Our goal is to give control back to the consumer through easy-to-manage plans, real support, affordable plans, and simple billing. The fact that over 70% of our users have switched over from a major carrier shows that there is an interest in a simplified and affordable phone carrier experience.”
Through strategic partnerships and agreements, Wing currently offers cellular coverage across the major networks, which include Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile, so that its users can maintain the coverage they are used to, but at, in most cases, more affordable rates. “Just like Uber doesn’t own cars and Airbnb doesn’t own apartments, we don’t own cell towers; but our partnerships allow us to tap into the same networks consumers are used to,” explains David Arabov.
Since its launch in 2017, Wing has grown quickly, generating over 100,000 sign ups. Wing also offers add-on features such a device insurance starting at as little as $5 month. The company also offers new and like-new phones to purchase in full or finance monthly – though users do not need to purchase a new phone to join.
Wing also notes that users who switch over to Wing from another carrier will get to keep their phone number as well as everything on their phone, including photos, texts, and contacts. The activation process can take a quick as just ten minutes.
Wing Chief Growth Officer Nick Lowry adds, “We’re very happy with the company’s rapid growth in four short years and we’re excited to continue to extend our offerings to new users who are looking for a new wireless experience. We see ourselves as the modern phone carrier experience that people deserve.”
