MVNO Prepaid Carriers List

MVNO, short for mobile virtual network operators, are small wireless networks that lease the mobile networks of larger companies. The four major wireless networks in the country are AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile.

These four companies lease out the services of their larger mobile networks to individual companies, which allows these smaller companies to then offer mobile service to individuals for a fraction of the price that individuals might pay on the larger, main networks.

There are hundreds of different wireless networks out there, so if you are looking to save a bit of money but want to know who you are able to use, this is an extensive list of the carriers you have access to.

One important thing to remember though, is when you switch from your current mobile provider and bring your phone, you need an MVNO that uses the old service provider’s network. If the new provider does not lease out the network of the larger companies, they are not able to help you out.
