chatr wireless, a brand new Canadian company offering location-based unlimited talk and text, just announced its entry on the local market with its specific services. The company intends to offer zone-based plans including unlimited talk for just $35 per month and unlimited talk and text for just $45 per month, without term contracts. For the start the company will deliever its services in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa, but is planning to extend it soon in Montreal with future plans for other Canadian markets.
“Canadians have indicated they want unlimited talk and text with simple, worry-free plans on a network that is trusted to deliver quality service,” said Garrick Tiplady, Senior Vice President, chatr. “With chatr, customers will have a no worry, talk happy experience.”
chatr's services are fully compatible with GSM and HSPA technology platforms, as well as 3G standard. The company's network is advertised as having fewer dropped calls than new wireless carriers because it has more cellular sites, better indoor and underground reception, and a seamless Canadian network. The Canadian company plans to offer entry level phones from well-known brands, starting from $60: Nokia 1661, Nokia 2680, LG GB125r, and Samsung Gravity.
“With chatr, customers can use their phones freely, never having to think about how many minutes they’ve used or how many texts they’ve sent,” said Tiplady. “They’ll benefit from cost certainty knowing that when they use their phones within their chatr zones, they'll pay just one low flat fee without any extra charges.”
The new Canadian company promises to provide its customers a friendly option with its “no worries, talk happy” phone plans. The service will be available for purchase at chatr stores in major malls and through hundreds of retail locations. Partners include Wireless Wave, Future Shop, Best Buy, Telephone Booth, London Drugs, Wireless Etc…(Costco), and Zellers.
