This new store will give Martinsburg residents access to an outstanding suite of nTelos products and services at affordable prices. It’s the same nation, but at a better price.”
With nTelos, customers can enjoy the latest wireless handsets, voice and data plans backed by a reliable nationwide 3G network, and the best value in nationwide unlimited calling.
“Our nationwide plans are value packed – offering the same services and coverage as the big carriers – but at substantial savings,” said Hunter.
In addition to being a good fit for consumers looking for savings without sacrificing coverage or service, nTelos is also good to the markets they serve.
“When we enter a market, we want to be more than just another wireless provider, we want to be a part of the community,” Hunter explained. “We have a long history of getting involved in the communities we service, from joining local chambers to contributing to local charities and organizations. And we’re looking forward to continuing that involvement and commerce leadership in the Martinsburg community.”
