MVNOs: what are they and what are the best options?

Mobile virtual network operators — also known as MVNOs — make up the large majority of available U.S. phone carrier options. In fact, it’s highly likely you’ve used an MNVO for your wireless phone service without even knowing it. But the more important question is what MVNOs actually are they, whether they’re any good, and which one should you use?

Simply put, MVNOs are carriers that don’t have their own wireless network; instead, they piggyback off another carrier’s platform for coverage through their cell phone plans. That translates to benefits for you such as lower costs, but you might experience slower traffic when parent networks prioritize their own customers over MVNO subscribers.
