Zer01 Mobile looks for distributors

VOIP carrier Zer01 launches, but you'll need to purchase service from distributors.

Three months ago at CTIA in Las Vegas, I visited with Zer01 Mobile, a new VoIP carrier that's promising unlimited voice, messaging, and data for $70 per month. At the time, Zer01 promised a July 1 launch date, but the company didn't say as much in its announcement today.

First off, "launch" is too strong a word. Rather than going live today, the company instead said it was looking for distributors. You can't purchase service or phones on the Zer01 Web site. Instead, you'll have to wait for a distributor to deliver them to you. Zer01 is still gathering distributors, but it has secured Buzzirk Mobile. According to Zero1 spokesperson Ron Dresner, the carrier will be making additional distributor announcements in the coming weeks.
