Pre-paid carrier Krew offers free cell service for the kids in your family

Pre-paid carrier Krew offers free cell service for the kids in your family
North America has a new pre-paid cellular service provider as Krew Mobile launched on Thursday. Krew was created because 80% of teens use a cellphone, and the average cost of a family plan is $100 a month. With more than 80% of parents saying that price is an important factor in deciding whether or not to get their kids a phone, Krew decided to be the first in the wireless industry to offer a "kids-are-free" wireless service.

The Krew Mobile Family Service Plan consists of three lines; one line goes to mom or dad and provides unlimited talk, text and 2GB of 4G LTE data. Two free bonus lines provide kids with nationwide talk and text. The price of the service is normally $39.95 a month, but for a limited time the first two months are priced at $19.95.

Krew Mobile requires you to have your own unlocked device, and since the kids' lines don't include data, giving them your old flip phones will work out perfectly. If you want to give your kids a phone for safety reasons, and don't think that they are ready to own a smartphone, Krew Mobile's Family Service Plan might be what the doctor ordered. While Krew doesn't sell phones, they do recommend that subscribers look at the certified ore-owned phones offered by Gazelle.

I'm guessing they are piggybacking off ATT or T-Mobile's networks? The coverage map looks similar.

Well with it being GSM it has to be either ATT or T-Mobile.
