Today is a new day. It’s a day you have never seen before and will never see again.
Stop telling yourself “same thing, different day” think about how many days you have said that to yourself ? Seize today, every single day is an opportunity for you to start new. Each new day stands alone and brings you another chance to achieve your goals, so start by making today your Best Day. It doesn’t matter what your present circumstances look like, or even If you fell down yesterday, you stand up today, because today is your new day. The only thing stopping YOU from today is YOU.

You can not change the people around you, but you can change the people that you choose to be around. If you hang around and follow nine successful people, you will be the tenth. If you hang around and follow misery, gossip, and lies, most likely you are miserable with yourself. Bad company corrupts good character. Surround yourself with those on the same mission as you.

Important message. Freddie Figgers recently had a chance to speak at a public school. While he was there, he met a 68 year old teacher that was spending her own personal money to supply her classroom. Freddie said to himself “how can a teacher focus on education while they are underpaid and being forced to use their own money to supply their classrooms?” This one particular teacher was living paycheck to paycheck and was now past due on her home and car payments. But she still spent her own money proudly to support her classroom. As beautiful as this gesture was, it was also a big issue.
After Freddie helped this teacher with her current situation, Freddie could not stop thinking about all the other teachers that must be in her same position. Too many teachers are being forced to come out their own pocket to supply their classrooms.
This is the public sectors’ job but we shouldn’t have to rely on the public sector. Every school year, we see back to school book-bag drives which are great, but we forget all about the teachers. This has to stop. Our teachers do so much for our kids, we must look out for them. So this is what Freddie is going to do. Freddie will be using his own personal resources to supply 1,000 teachers’ classrooms with all the supplies they’ll need to have a successful school year.
Please, if you know any teacher that have used their own money to supply their classroom, please click on the link below to add their name and school on our supply list. Figgers is going to help.

“The hurricane destroyed the entire island’s telecommunications’ network,” said Figgers, 28, founder of Figgers Communication that 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.”

While the White House and Congress were trying to decide what kind of aid to send while criticizing the people of Puerto Rico after the devastation from Hurricane Maria, one Black entrepreneur decided to do something about it. Freddie Figgers, owner of one of the nation’s largest African-American owned cell phone companies and networks, has sent over 500 free satellite phones with unlimited calls, texts and data to help families affected by Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

“The hurricane destroyed the entire island’s telecommunications’ network,” said Figgers, 28, founder of Figgers Communication that 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.”

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.

Born barely alive to his crack addicted mother, little Freddie Figgers somehow survived, and by age 22 held four U.S. patents and became the youngest American to own and operate a telecommunications company, Figgers Communications. 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. Figgers said the SIM cards are fully activated for 90 days free of charge. “We all need to do our part to make sure that Puerto Rico gets back on its feet.” These SIM cards and phones will be distributed out in San Juan to individual families and at San Juan Airport.

From the moment Freddie Figgers found out about the devastation caused by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, he knew he had to step in and do something. So the 28-year-old founder and owner of Figgers Communication sent Puerto Rico 500 satellite phones with unlimited calls, texts and data.

“The hurricane destroyed the entire island’s telecommunications network,” Figgers said. “We’re trying to do all we can to help these families communicate with each other, especially their loved ones.”

Figgers Communication is one of the nation’s largest African-American-owned cellphone companies and networks and is one of the few telecoms in the country that manufactures its own phone. Figgers designs his own phones and developed his network himself. Four years ago, his custom-designed phone, the F1, already had automatic anti-texting functionality and superfast charging.

According to Figgers, the SIM cards in the phones sent to Puerto Rico are fully activated for 90 days free of charge.

“We all need to do our part to make sure that Puerto Rico gets back on its feet. These SIM cards and phones will be distributed out in San Juan to individual families and at San Juan Airport.”

At only 26-years-old, Freddie Figgers is the CEO of a $2.2 million Florida telecommunications company.

According to a 2014 study by Insight Research Corp, telecommunications services revenue worldwide will grow from $2.1 trillion in 2014 to $2.4 trillion in 2019.

This great news means there is money to be made in this industry. However, African-Americans are not the ones making it.

Figgers Communication hopes to change that.

In 2011, The Fcc approved my application to own Spectrum and the construction of my first cellular tower began as soon I received the Fcc License.

In August of 2010, Freddie Figgers designed a Voice Telecommunication network (Voip Voice over Internet Protocol) that transmits voice to and from the USA from over 80 countries’ landline and mobile connections.

November, 2009

I became an operator in the USA to compete on the same market as Verizon AT&T Sprint and T-Mobile, therefore, in May of 2009, I applied for a License spectrum band from the FCC to provide radio Telecommunication by internet and voice. I did this in order to provide WiMAX. WiMAX is an IP based, wireless broadband access technology that provides performance similar to 802.11/Wi-Fi networks with the coverage and QOS (quality of service) of Wisp networks. WiMAX is also an acronym meaning “Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX). Wi-Fi’s range is 80-100ft from an access point in your office home or office. In other words, WiMax turns many small, scattered hot spots into one huge wireless hotspot.

March, 2008

In 2008, I had over eighty custom software programs designed, built, executed, and purchased by companies. In late 2008, I started developing “Tracker”. Tracker is a software program that receives Global Positioning System (GPS) signals for the purpose of determining the present location of any cell phone, regardless of whether it is powered on or off. I wanted to be a licensed Telecom needed to store old buyers’ orders from years ago to keep in their created a computer operating system.

October, 2007

By the age of seventeen, I began wondering about how amazing servers can provide resources and share data to thousands of users simultaneously from one place.That lingering idea drove me into building my Data center at my parents’ home. I built nine web servers. That same year, I founded Figgers Computers and Networks. I focused mainly on local businesses that needed website hosting and co-location without paying high fees for data storage. Within seven months, I had approximately one- hundred and fifty active clients ranging from local businesses that needed websites, lawyer offices that needed to store old client files to clean out their network for new clients, to local car dealerships that records. At that age, what really struck me was telecommunications and how a voice could transmit and travel to a switchboard and relay a call to another voice call across the country in milliseconds. I wanted to create a Telecom network but due to my funding, it was a mere dream. Companies loved keeping their data hosted with Figgers Computers and Networks. Companies started requesting custom programs and requirements to help the day to day business operation functions run smoothly. I remember in March of 2006, a sales representative came into a local CPA office, a place where I frequently worked backing up their network to my Data Center, and I noticed how the salesman came in and sold custom Tax preparation software for almost $25,000 for a thirty-minute install. That drove me into software, and how to develop and deploy a software program. Thus, in mid-2007, I developed and An Operating System (OS) is a set of system software programs in a computer that regulate the ways application software programs use the computer hardware and the ways that users control the computer. For hardware functions such as input/output and memory space allocation, operating system programs act as an intermediary between application programs and the computer hardware, although application programs are usually executed directly by the hardware and it launch. I sold almost six- hundred copies of my operating system, but due to everyone having Microsoft and Windows, I ran into hundreds of compatibility issues.

April, 2005

At the age of fifteen, I decided that I wanted to be an employer instead of an employee. Therefore, I started to repair computers for consumers and local businesses in my hometown and surrounding counties. That same year, I founded Figgers Computers Inc. It’s surprising that at the age of fifteen, many companies trusted me enough to allow me to come into their facilities to repair their computers, install “Wireless Areas Networks”, and monitor their networks and computer which would have had an effect on the day to day business. Companies were thrilled to have me but due to my age, companies had to impose certain restrictions. Figgers Computers Inc. was operated out of my parent’s house. The consumers would deliver 20-40 computers to my parent’s houses weekly for virus repairs or repairs to broken laptop screens.

May, 2002

At the age of thirteen, I started working for the City of NetQuincy. My job title was Computer Technician and Network Administer.My daily tasks consisted of repairing computers for the City of Quincy and the people of the city. I was also part of a team that helped build NetQuincy Telecommunication infrastructure, where the City was providing internet services to local residents and businesses within the city limits.

August, 1998

To keep me out of trouble, at the age of nine, my father purchased a non-functioning 1989 computer from a thrift store. When he placed the computer on the kitchen table, I made it my mission to get the computer into good working order. After I took the computer apart five times, on my sixth attempt, I finally got it to power on. That is when my technology journey began. Today, that same computer runs on Windows 7. 

September, 1989

When I was less than a month old, I was abandoned by my birth mother. I was adopted by foster parents and never had a chance to know my biological family.
