If you’ve followed us closely as of late, you know we’ve been profiling different wireless service providers. These carriers, such as Mint Mobile, Republic Wireless, and Freedompop, are known as mobile virtual network operators — or MVNOs. What is an MVNO and what does that really mean?

While most American consumers are familiar with the names like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint, there are dozens more available. Who are they? What are the benefits or drawbacks?

Our latest podcast is up in which we discuss the very topic of MVNO. Learn more about who the various names are in the MVNO space and why you should consider one — or stay away.
