On today’s special edition of Up to Speed we have an important message for our TracFone Wireless, Inc. team: Welcome to Verizon!

We may not get to meet everyone in person right away, but in the meantime, we heard from some TracFone employees, and Verizon Consumer Group CEO Ronan Dunne spoke with TracFone CEO Eduardo Diaz Corona about why this deal is right for our business, our customers and our employees.

We also learned some interesting facts about our new co-workers and their business.

  • TracFone is the largest reseller of wireless services in the U.S., serving approximately 20 million subscribers and distributing wireless products and services through a network of over 90,000 retail locations nationwide.
  • Over the past decade, TracFone has developed strong consumer brands and established itself as a clear leader in the value segment.
  • A longtime partner of Verizon, more than 13 million TracFone subscribers currently rely on our wireless network through an existing wholesale agreement.

Once again, we extend a warm V Team welcome to the entire TracFone team. We’re excited for the many opportunities we’ll have as we move the world forward together.

Tell us what you think of Up To Speed.
