Boost, kajeet take home awards

Today we bring news of not one, but two prepaid companies receiving awards for their service. We start with Boost Mobile, which has won the Frost & Sullivan award for North American Prepaid Mobile Service Of The Year. This award is based on a number of factors, including service adoption and growth. This is where Boost has excelled recently. They signed up more subscribers than any other prepaid carrier in the first quarter, and their Boost Unlimited continues to provide value (though there is that whole text messaging speed bump).

Prepaid carrier kajeet took home an Honors award from the National Parenting Publications Awards competition. They are the only cell phone company to ever take home this award, which make sense because they’re one of the few who target the younger demographic.

Brent Iadarola of Frost & Sullivan on Boost:

“Boost Mobile has successfully evolved into a total communications service provider in the North American prepaid wireless market, especially with the launch of its groundbreaking Monthly Unlimited plan. The company is poised to strengthen its market leadership position by leveraging a mix of high-quality service offerings, extensive retail operations and economical and transparent pricing. The 2009 award for North American Prepaid Mobile Service of the Year is presented to Boost Mobile in recognition of its impressive performance in this segment and is an acknowledgement of its strong growth potential.”

And Carol Politi of kajeet on their award:

“We are truly honored to be recognized by NAPPA. When parents see the NAPPA seal, they know they can expect a high-quality, safe, useful and expert-approved product and service from kajeet.”

Congratulations to both Boost and kajeet on their awards.
