Wing is wireless phone service provider that offers a much needed alternative to the major carriers like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. Below is our recent interview with Greg Dybec, from Wing Tel:
Q: For those who haven’t heard of it, what is the best way to describe Wing Tel?
A: Wing is wireless phone service provider that offers a much needed alternative to the major carriers like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. We provide service through the AT&T network, however we are a completely separate and independent company. We offer the same premium features as the major carriers – such as unlimited plans, international data, and unlimited talk and text – however we are digital-first and are able to pass our savings on to our users. We’ve eliminated the pain points of dealing with and getting ripped off by a big carrier, while still providing the best nationwide speeds and coverage available.
Q: Why is now the time for a technology solution like Wing?
A: We’re experiencing a shift across industries in which control is finally being given back to the consumer, and telecom shouldn’t be an exception. We’re all sick and tired of wasting time in phone stores, being hit with hidden fees and charges, and not understanding exactly what we’re getting billed for or how much data we’re actually using.
We’re also in an age where it’s easier to do things like order food, book a ride, and do your banking on your phone than it is to actually manage your cell phone plan. Wing is here to change that. We’ve simplified the phone carrier experience and our users are able to pay their bills, change their plans, and chat directly with customer support all in our easy-to-use app. We also switch most of our users over to Wing via text message in 10 minutes or less, all from the comfort of their own couch.
Q: Can you give us insights into your plans?
A: The beauty of being a Wing user is that you’re never locked into one plan with us. You can change plans each month and even add data at the touch of a button. You also have full transparency of how much data you’re using so if you realize you’re paying for more data than you need, you can switch to a lower plan.
We have a range of lower data plans between $20 – $34 per month and an unlimited plan for $50 per month. We also have basic phone and flip phone plans for $15 per month. We don’t discriminate.
Q: What are the benefits of switching to Wing?
A: You get to save money and eliminate stress. What’s better than that? We save the average Wing user over $650 a year on their phone plans. And over 70% of our users have switched over from a major carrier like Verizon or AT&T.
Q: What can we expect from Wing in the future?
A: Our plan is simple: save as many people from paying too much for their phone bill as possible. We have plans for all types of users, from families to smartphone users to flip phone users to people in rural areas to anyone in major metro cities. Anyone with a cell phone has the opportunity to join Wing and start saving.
