republic doesn't have to serve all customers. Also, their minute allowances for on-cellular calling are soft caps, hence the "bad day/week/month" bit.
As far as "privilege" goes, if you're able to keep heavy calling on WiFi (I know I would be able to do this...may pick the device up to play with it) then you can use 3k minutes per month without a problem. 'cuz SIP is heap.
Yeah, it works because you have to pay for the air interface (wifi) and backhaul (cable/dsl/fiber) for most of the minutes. Works well since everyone else pays for those things.
Yeah...your point? In return for doing aggressive WiFi offloading republic shaves $26 off your monthly bill compared to someone like Straight Talk. I fail to see the issue with this business model, though it's not for everyone.
Nothing against them. Utilizing your own connection and router better to save you money. Good thing for the right users.
