SAN DIEGO, May 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cricket Communications, Inc. today announced a new advertising campaign that challenges wireless giants Verizon and AT&T. The campaign entitled 'Half is More', urges consumers to ask themselves why they are spending more for the same thing and is aimed at those who are looking for a better deal on wireless but not willing to compromise on great devices and service. The launch of the Half is More campaign demonstrates that Cricket is out to prove that most wireless customers are simply overpaying. Cricket just announced the addition of the Samsung GS4 to its already attractive line-up of popular smartphones.


"Most wireless customers have been misled to believe the only way to get the phones and plans they need is to give up control and overpay the likes of AT&T and Verizon," said Tyler Wallis, senior vice president of product and marketing at Cricket Communications. "Cricket is challenging consumers and asking the question that if you can pay only half and get the same thing, why wouldn't you?"

The 'Half Is More' campaign is rolling out now across digital, print, retail, out-of-home and social media, with television advertising beginning June 3, 2013.

Each campaign element will bring to life the affordability message throughout the summer. Online videos, TV, radio & cinema demonstrate the "moment of truth" when real people in everyday scenarios realize that Half is More.  Along with out-of-home, the retail experience – both online and in-store – will further drive home the comparison to AT&T and Verizon, and highlight the breadth of Cricket's devices and other products and services customers want and need. Social media engagement via Facebook and Twitter (#WhatsYourMore) will spark online conversation; and local market activations in Cricket markets across the country will connect consumers directly with the campaign.
