First things first, what’s an MVNO? I’ll let you look into that more, but think of the big four wireless companies as limo companies that shuttle around flash drives in a limo.
Sometimes, the big four have space in the trunk, and sell it to a Mobile Virtual Network Operator. The MVNO buys trunk space and resells it to you, sometimes at a steep discount.
Now imagine the limosines are cell towers, the trunk space is spare bandwidth, and the flash drives are your calls, texts, and data transfers.
Try one sometime, you might like the savings, can often keep your phone, and might be able to keep your number. I’ll let you know more when I try one out this weekend, so stay tuned.
