About Mobile Virtual Network Operators
Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) are mobile service operators that do not have their own licensed spectrum and do not have the infrastructure to provide mobile service to its customers (i.e., it does not own the network on which its voice and data traffic is carried). Instead, MVNOs lease wireless capacity from pre-existing mobile service providers and establish their own brand names different from the providers. For example, Virgin MobileUSA (the first American MVNO) uses Sprint as its underlying carrier, Page Plus uses Verizon, and Air Voice Wireless uses AT&T. MVNOs typically offer subscription-based voice and data service, and the customers are not doing business with underlying wireless provider but with the MVNO brand.
