Q.

What operators are classed as MvNOs in the US?

A.

MvNO stands for Mobile Virtual Network Operator, and is defined as a network operator or provider that does not use it's own underlying network infrastructure to provide a service to its customers. Find out more information about MvNOs and what this means for your business!

 

Most providers in the US would fall into this category, as most use the underlying infrastructure from five main operators:

 

  • AT&T
  • Sprint
  • T-Mobile
  • U.S. Cellular
  • Verizon

 

Every other network operator in the US will use one of these networks to provide their services to their customers, but may provide their own customer service, billing systems and marketing, which makes it hard to identify that they are an MvNO. 

 

Which network is used by which mobile virtual network operator?

 

A comprehensive list of active US mobile virtual network operators and cell phone companies can be found below to help you understand who the underlying infrastructure would belong to for each network operator:
