- Many different plans
- Few fees
- Great technology
Appalachian Wireless has so many different plans, with different lengths, contracts, and prepaid plans. They have few fees, except for their two-year plan and operate by using CDMA technology, the same technology that Verizon and US Cellular use. They have an extremely thorough website, with an easy account management service, great FAQs and a good support center. They also offer many different smartphones, including Apple iPhones.
- Limited locations
- Early-termination fees
Appalachian Wireless is only offered in Kentucky, so if you aren't located in Kentucky, this service isn't for you. If you purchase a two year plan, you are subject to early-termination fees, as well as update fees if you would like to purchase a new phone.
