Head of America’s only black telecom company wants to change the mobile landscape
Freddie Figgers, the founder of Figgers Wireless, has patented a Wireless In-conductive Charger — which he says could change the cellphone industry.
The Story Behind The Man
At birth, Freddie Figgers was abandoned next to a dumpster. At 8, his father gave him a used computer. At 16, he started a computer repair company and five years later purchased a cellphone tower. When he was 19, Figgers launched Figgers Wireless, which over the next 11 years would provide mobile phones to nearly 1 million customers.
For his next act, Figgers, now 30, has patented a Wireless Inconductive Charger — which he says could change the cellphone industry entirely.
The quality of a company is a direct reflection of its people. Figgers Communication is a solid company because it was birthed by a solid man. After Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria, Freddie Figgers quickly donated 500 satellite phones and SIM cards with unlimited calls, texts and data to survivors. Figgers could relate to them — he was abandoned at birth by his biological mother. His adopted father suffered from dementia, also. But pain is what pushed Figgers’ genius. His father often forgot to put on his pants but always remembered his shoes. In response, Freddie cleverly invented a shoe with GPS tracking, capable of two-way communication. That imagination and grit is what distinguishes Figgers — the man and the company.
A Better Wireless Experience
Figgers Communication is simply not average. After Hurricane Irma crippled Florida this past September, only Figgers and Verizon customers still had cell service, according to COO Germaine Bebe. Those 16 satellites work, even in the midst of hurricanes. The company employs a “network test drive team” to monitor all cell traffic and satellite repetition 24 hours a day, across the United States. Figgers takes reliability very seriously. Their network covers over 99% of the country and over 80 countries internationally. They’ve got you covered, with 4G speeds and boundless innovation.
Your security is a top priority for Figgers Communication. Clients from government, healthcare and higher education already trust them to keep their data secure. If Figgers can protect big organizations, I’m confident that they’ve got me and you covered also. The company actively combats malware, roots out suspicious traffic on its networks and works overtime to ensure every call and text is secure and private, as it should be.
Freddie Fingers currently holds 4 utility and 2 design patents in telecommunications. And It shows — his company is distinct in that it manufactures its own phones. The Figgers F2 handset has a built-in wireless blood glucose meter (Watch Video Below). After checking your blood sugar, it shares results with your relatives, insurance carrier and doctor. It also has an original technology which can — when activated — prevent texting and driving. It detects motion over 10 mph and puts SMS and data into airplane mode. While the iPhone X offers a 12 megapixel camera, the F2 captures your memories with 13 megapixels.
