Inventor Freddie Figgers Becomes One of America’s Youngest Telecommunications Leaders


Figgers Communications is owned, operated by 26-year old inventor and software engineer.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., July 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Freddie Figgers became one of the youngest African-Americans to own and operate an independent, U.S.-based telecommunications company when he launched Figgers Communications.

When he was 9 years old, Freddie Figgers was given a non-functioning computer to take apart and fix. At the age of 13, he went to work as a computer technician and network and administrator, and at 16, Freddie Figgers launched a computer repair business. The same year, Figgers Computers, Inc., was born. Now, Figgers now holds 4 patents and continues to forge ahead.

The young inventor and software engineer has taken a passion for working on electronics and a dedication to helping others to create a series of services and products that seamlessly provide solutions for everyday needs. For instance, his Figgers F1 phone encourages safe driving by disallowing incoming or outgoing texts when it detects motion over 10MPH.

“All the laws in the world can’t change human behavior, but the Figgers F1 can,” said Freddie Figgers.

Outside of Figgers Communications, Freddie Figgers has even helped physicians with an invention that helps doctors monitor patients remotely.

Figgers Communications offers cell phone service plans and mobile broadband plans with nationwide coverage starting at $15 per month without annual contracts. More information can be found at http://Figgers.com.
