Tracfone Wireless is one of the largest ‘no-contract’ cellular service providers in the U.S. that has more than 15 million subscribers. It has been around since 1996 originally under the name of Topp Telecom Inc. which was based in Miami, Florida. Within a few years, the company found itself being supported by Telmex that bought a controlling interest of 55% of the firm and by the year 2000, it was split from Telmex then started to grow exponentially after taking on the new name ‘Tracfone’. Right now, Tracfone is considered as one of the biggest prepaid wireless companies in the U.S. which also offers its services in Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands allowing users to buy prepaid minutes on a wide variety of mobile phones including hot brands like Motorola, LG and Nokia. The company considers itself as an excellent option for those people who don’t want to deal with the hassle of long-term contracts and credit checks which happens with most phone companies.
Unlike other prepaid mobile phone services, Tracfone allows its subscribers to use some of the hottest phones and have all the options that any user with a standard-issue binding contract would likely have. As such, the firm has built its stellar reputation. Tracfone understands that nobody wants to have an inferior phone simply because they are using prepaid services that’s why it offers the same hot phones that other postpaid subscribers have without forcing its customers to enter into a 12-24 month contract which a lot of people don’t like. In addition to being a preferred mobile service provider in the U.S., Tracfone also dominates Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands with almost 10 million customers and an expanding customer base making the company enjoy so much success and continuous growth year on year.
