    New Kid on the Block. Selectel Wireless. Verizon MVNO

    Looks pretty Solid and a Good Priced Verizon MVNO. Might be pretty attractive to Those not wanting to Line Carlos Slims Pocketbook anymore with his Aquisition of Page Plus. Check it out..

    Selectell, new Verizon mvno or Page plus offshoot?

    http://www.selectelwireless.com/

    Has plans similar to Page Plus . Some beat Page Plus.
    1) $15 300 min/300 text/15 meg.
    2) $30 1300 min/3000 txt/300 megs Beats Page Plus's 1200 plan .
    3) $40 Unlimited talk/text/200 megs
    4)$50 Unlimited talk/text 2 gigs . Beats Page Plus's 55.
    5) $65 Unlimited talk/text/4 gigs (not on website).

    Outsourced cs. Not a sub mvno of Page Plus according to them.
    Allows at least Verizon clean esn postpaid devices as byod. Other cdma carriers devices may be flashed, not confirmed.

    Dealer program launches June 6. May have potential to capture Page Plus users once the Tracfone virus changes them into another AM
    monster.

    To mod, there are two threads on Selectel . Please merge.

    There is some suspicion that this is a Page Plus sub mvno though they denied it.

    Their coverage map is a clone of Page Plus's map so the suspicion is warranted. Also they didn't edit out Page Plus on two paragraphs on their features page. Case closed.

    Where do you see BYOD? I couldn't find any mention of it on their website.

    I'm wondering if there's a chance that they're a Page Plus dealer or subreseller of some sort?

    An educated guess, I should add. There is nothing to stop them having pasted in Page Plus's information, of course, however.

    I got contradictory answers from different reps of their company. "We used to be with Page Plus. We aren't anymore. We deal directly with Verizon." "We were with Page Plus and still are." I'm going to make it simple. Page Plus is reportedly going to be increasing their unlimited talk/text $39.95 plan's data to 500 megs in the next month or so. If Selectel monkey sees and monkey does what the owl does, the smell of fish will reek...

    Would there be much money to be made if they're just reselling PPC plans?

    I spoke with someone higher up in the company. 1). They are not running off of Page Plus. In fact they are running on Verizon "retail" or postpaid coverage side. That means they have postpaid not prepaid /mvno /Page Plus coverage. 2) They do allow the full byod of Page Plus .

    So it is an independent company, not an offshoot, though it may have started life as such. I asked them, "why did you have Page plus on your website. " It apparently needs to be updated. I think they are for real. The true test is to go into a area where Page Plus roams with a Selectel phone that doesn't.

    But I'm pretty sure it's an indie and not a Page Plus sub mvno.

    Do they accept byod VZW LTE too?

    This could very well be my next choice if/when PPC gets all Slimmy. Just got 2 more stacked PPC PINs. That'll give me some time to see if Selectel Wireless is the real deal or a flash in the pan.

    Yes we are a New Carrier on the prepaid block. We are master dealers for pp and we planned on offering our service along with pp however with the deal made this week we have decided to offer our service exclusively. Our website is being updated daily so thanks for helping us find some of the errors. What does make us different is that we do use the post paid coverage vs prepaid...does it make a difference? Depends on where you live. We will also offer a wireless hotspot for Mifi's and we will also offer a hotspot feature from your smartphone if it supports it. We own 3 callcenters and have done customer service for own CLEC for over ten years so we know how to treat customers like they should be treated. If you are intetested in being a dealer we have some other differences you will really appreciate so fill out our dealer registration form on our home page and we will shoot you some information.
