Providing quality service to you since 2007.
Flat Wireless was formed in 2007 by a group of investors with vast experience in wireless telecommunications, many originally involved with Alamosa PCS. The original Chairman of the Board of Flat Wireless, and current member of the Board, founded Alamosa PCS in 1999 and grew the company to become the largest affiliate of Sprint PCS. Alamosa PCS operated in 19 states with a peak of approximately 1.5 million subscribers and 3,200 sites. The business was sold to Sprint in 2006. Kevin, being a former executive for Alamosa, brought on key personnel from Alamosa PCS to establish the new business. Flat Wireless created a regional wireless prepaid company, d/b/a Cleartalk, with a vision to provide affordable wireless service, no contract and no credit check with services launching in 2008. Cleartalk operated in 5 states with a peak of approximately 110,000 subscribers, 100 retail locations, and over 200 sites. Cleartalk experienced significant success until the prepaid market became saturated with the introduction of Metro PCS and Cricket. Due to extreme competition, and the lack of ability to effectively compete against national brands, Flat Wireless elected to shut down the Cleartalk retail operations in 2018 after having been in operation for over 10 years. Flat Wireless migrated the vast majority of the existing Cleartalk subscribers to Boost. Flat Wireless now operates over 50 Boost retail locations spread across the Southwest region of the USA. Flat Wireless also continues to run a roaming network that allows Sprint subscribers roam into rural areas outside of core Sprint coverage.
Flat Wireless has shifted focus over the last few years from running our own mobile operations towards supporting the efforts of other large and small carriers and assisting with their engineering, consulting and construction needs. Our in-house engineering, project management, tower, and civil construction crews have been involved in the 4G/5G deployments for AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, INET, and many other small carriers across the USA. Flat Wireless is also involved in several CBRS network deployments in the United States involving RF design, tower installs, project development and vendor selection.
