MetroPCS launches one-call communication system for landline replacers

Shared GroupLINE number while still maintaining individual mobile numbers

By CBR Staff Writer

MetroPCS Communications, a provider of unlimited, flat-rate, no signed contract wireless communications service in the US, has launched GroupLINE, a one-call communication system for landline replacers.

According to MetroPCS, GroupLINE allows up to five MetroPCS’s Family Plan subscribers to receive calls on a shared GroupLINE number while still maintaining their individual mobile numbers. Any caller, whether or not they are a MetroPCS subscriber, can call the GroupLINE number, and reach all of the subscribers on the plan simultaneously.

GroupLINE allows users to talk from their personal wireless phone while allowing them to talk wherever they are located rather than having to be in the same location together, said MetroPCS.

Roger Linquist, president, CEO and chairman of the board of MetroPCS, said: GroupLINE was developed with families’ needs in mind. We are all on-the-go, and we often have news to share with the whole family. With GroupLINE, instead of making numerous calls, everyone can be reached at one time. And in today’s economy, GroupLINE offers families the luxury of staying in touch without breaking the bank.
