It leverages the latest blockchain-powered mobile technology to provide 5G coverage that is secure, affordable, and distributed on a decentralized, user-driven, community-owned network. The company's wireless phone service will launch later this year and its website, REALLY.com, offers a comparison tool that allows consumers to analyze 56 different carriers and 379 phone plans to find and select the most appropriate option.
