With the massive number of prepaid MVNOs and carrier options, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of it all and even harder to compare and decide which company is the right one for you. So, every once in a while we’re going to go through and do a Face-off of two popular companies, comparing plans and services to help you better decide.

Today, we’ll look at two companies – AT&T MVNO Consumer Cellular, and Verizon MVNO enVie Mobile. EnVie is actually the CDMA side of H2O Wireless, and it has pretty competitive pricing and plans. Consumer Cellular, onthe other hand, seems to be geared toward customers who don’t use their cell phones as heavily. While each company might appeal to different people, each has its perks.

H2O BOLT Replacing WiMAX with LTE


H2O Wireless has posted an announcement to its website for users of its H2O BOLT mobile broadband service.

Earlier this year Sprint announced that it will be discontinuing its WiMAX service in November 2015, so this probably won’t be taking anyone by surprise, but it’s still worth paying attention to. Customers will be able to recharge their BOLT until August 31, 2015.

H2O Wireless adds an unlimited plan

One of our featured pay as you go cell phone providers that doesn’t get much attention is H2O Wireless (listed as o2 Wireless in our sidebar, an oversight that needs correcting). They provide decent rates and coverage, but rarely do they make headlines. That changed this week, as they added a $60 unlimited plan to their repertoire. The $60 includes the standard items: minutes, messages, and web. This complements H2O’s existing unlimited plans, which cost $40 and $50 per month. You can find out more at H2O’s website.
