Fort Lauderdale, Florida, September 27, 2017 – Freddie Figgers, owner of one of the nation’s largest African-American owned cell phone companies and networks, has sent 500 satellite phones with unlimited calls, texts and data to help families affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

Figgers said the SIMM cards are fully activated for 90 days free of charge. These sim cards and phones will be distributed out in San Juan to individual families at San Juan Airport.

“The hurricane destroyed the entire island’s telecommunications’ network,” said Figgers, 28, founder of Figgers Communication, who has designed his own phones and developed his own network. “We’re trying to do all can to help these families communicate with each other, and especially their loved ones.”

Figgers Designed First Phone with Automatic Anti-Texting Function

Four years ago, Figgers developed the custom-designed phone the “F1” phone that has automatic anti-texting functionality and super-fast charging. Next month, he is releasing the F2 the company, which will be waterproof and shatterproof. Figgers Communication is currently one of the few telecoms in the country that manufactures its own phone and provides its own service.

As Figgers, who grew up to adopted parents in Quincy FL, looked at the devastation in Puerto Rico, he said he had to do something.“We all need to do our part to make sure that Puerto Rico gets back on its feet.”

Figgers Makes Make At An Early Age

Figgers is a child prodigy. At age 9, Freddie Figgers took apart an old IBM personal computer five times that his father bought at a local Goodwill Store. On the sixth time, he got it working. At age 13, he started working for the city of Quincy as a computer technician and network administrator in its NetQuincy department, setting up the city’s network and helping residents.

At age 16, Figgers started Figgers Computers, repairing computers and installing wireless area networks. By age 17, he created a cloud-based hosting network that stored data for more than 70 clients – law firms, car dealerships and dozens of other companies. By age 18, he had created his own computer operating system. Figgers also designed a VOIP – Voice over Internet Protocol network – that transmits voice to and from the USA from more than 80 countries’ landline and mobile connections. He achieved another milestone in 2011 when the FCC approved the company’s application to own spectrum, leading to the construction of the company’s first cellular tower.
