“The world is long overdue for a genuine alternative to traditional mobile carriers who are known for customer dissatisfaction, high costs, spotty coverage, and a disregard for user privacy. Our belief in Pollen’s vision and the Pollen team has already been validated by the incredibly enthusiastic reception from the rapidly growing Pollen community.”
