his latest endeavor, the RUSH Communitcator project. It will make
all types of wireless devices accessible to anyone who needs it
or wants it, via one prepaid phone card, The One Card.
The card will be usable
for cell, long distance, 2way pagers, alphanumeric paging, internet
appliances and local telephone dialing services.
Simmons told the New
York Post: "There is a communications divide in this country,
and the One Card creates a simple way to communicate."
"Some 50 percent of all phone
calls made in the U.S. are prepaid, almost 100 percent of kids
in the US can't get cell phones or pagers, and one-third of the
people who want cell phones can't get them. Most people in America
are credit-challenged. No one should be denied access to the latest
information and technology, " said Simmons.
The One Card will be available
in over 5,000 retail locations by the end of 2001.
