Entrepreneur Opens First Ever Black-Owned Prepaid Carrier Storefront

Chaymeriyia Moncrief, founder of Tesix Wireless

Despite the overwhelming competition in the wireless and MVNO industry and a series of those who didn't make it past the first year, one newcomer has come and defied many odds and beliefs of its lasting ability.
Tesix Wireless operates with one group of people in mind, millennials. As covered in various media sources, the company was founded by 25-year old millennial, Chaymeriyia Moncrief, an Alabama entrepreneur who wanted to create a more straightforward and exciting carrier.

Of all the company's significant milestones, like reserving their NYSE stock ticker, generating $1.5M their first year, and putting their carrier-branded smartphones in production, the carrier has now officially opened the first African American found carrier storefront.

Operating on the nation's largest GSM network, Tesix Wireless delivers fee-less mobile plans with a 'pay-as-see' pricing model. Including all fees, taxes, and offering zero activation fees in their plans, keeps their prices aligned with carriers of larger status.

With plans starting as little as $18/mo, you can expect features like Unlimited Talk and Text, Unlimited 4G/5G data, mobile hotspot, 2-in-1 line ability, and hotspot only plans. The features offered by Tesix makes it popular among its customers and eye-catching to the Millenials it targets. "We offer features you can't get anywhere else for the prices offered," states Moncrief in a previous interview.

According to Black Enterprise, after the launch announcement of Tesix Wireless in 2018, the telecommunications startup quickly built a waitlist of 4,000 subscribers and netted $40,000 in sim pre-sales.

With a successful first year, the carrier already has 30+ authorized dealers underway for 2020 and 2021.
