Straight Talk launching home phone service

While this isn’t exactly prepaid cellular news, it does have to do with one of our more prominent carriers, Straight Talk. They’re apparently piggybacking Verizon’s Home Phone Connect service, which they launched a couple of years ago. It’s essentially a wireless base station and wireless phone that runs off of Verizon’s CDMA network. The base station itself will come out September 21st and will cost $99. The service will cost either $15 per month, for unlimited domestic long distance, or $30 to add international long distance to 1,000 worldwide locations. You can check out more details at the dedicated Straight Talk page.
