PlatinumTel expands into Southeast U.S.

PlatinumTel is on the move. They’re an MVNO operating on the Sprint network, and normally we don’t hear about expansions from virtual operators. PlatinumTel, however, has already increased coverage in some markets, notably in Florida. This week they announced another expansion, this one running just north of their previous effort. The company will now service more markets in the Southeast U.S., including Birmingham and Montgomery, Alabama, and Savannah, Georgia. The expanded effort includes 30 new retailers in the area that will sell PlatinumTel phones and plans. They also plan to expand further in the near future, hitting markets in Tuscaloosa, Alabama; Nashville, Tennessee; and Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
