"Over the years, RNK has provided telephony services to tens of millions of individuals worldwide, and through our partnership with 7-Eleven - the world's best known convenience retailer - we are now empowered to offer consumers the industry's most affordable mobile solution for international (and domestic) calling," said Richard N. Koch, CEO, RNK Communications. "The ReVoS line is the most cost-effective prepaid service the market has seen, with calling features that best address the increasing global demand. PrepaidMobile represents the natural progression of our business and our relentless commitment to providing consumers affordable, quality calling services."
"For our customers who have international calling needs, this may be as big as the prepaid long distance phone cards introduced more than 10 years ago," said Joe DePinto, 7-Eleven's president and CEO. "7-Eleven was the first national retailer to bring those to the market, and we're always on the lookout for the latest and greatest new products to meet the needs of those on the go. Our customers expect new products from 7-Eleven that make their lives easier and give them more value for their money, and our suppliers know to bring us innovative ideas. ReVoS fills the bill on all counts."
Unlike many service providers, RNK understands that prepaid telephony services must offer more than simply cheap domestic calling. Affordable, reliable international connectivity is in strong demand, and ReVoS responds by offering international calling to more than 42 in-plan destinations for a flat monthly fee.
RNK processes billions of minutes through its switches annually, and is the private label wholesaler of choice for resellers in the US. Over the past 24 months, RNK has recorded significant growth in number of subscribers nationwide, breadth and depth of its service offerings, in addition to a 100% increase in staffing.
