Community Phone turns one year old and raises $800,000
Cambridge, MA—August 15, 2019—Community Phone, a startup that seeks to address the need for truly customer-centric telecommunications, announced today that it has raised $800,000 in funding from Y Combinator, Justin Kan, Dan Kan, Lachy Groom, Dylan Field, and others, to fund additional U.S. customer service experts and expansion.
Community Phone purchases wholesale data from the Sprint and AT&T networks, and hundreds of lesser known networks abroad—enabling it to operate on an international network—and passes wholesale prices directly on to its members, with plans starting at only $15/month for unlimited talking and texting all the way to $50/month to include unlimited LTE data and tethering. Packages include a new iPhone 6s or Huawei Honor 8x at an additional $10/month. This small fee includes over-the-phone assistance immediately from U.S. representatives and no tracking of one's location and other data.
Customers include a health department within the State Government of Maryland, PLAN of MA and RI, close to 100 Harvard and MIT professors, and many, many more creative people and organizations.
