Same Network - Different Carrier

What Network Do They Use? These are separate, "alternative" companies that use the same wireless networks as the major carriers, usually at a lower price. They're also known as Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO), wholesale carriers, or cellular "re-sellers". You get your phone, plan and customer service from these companies instead of the underlying carrier. Some use more than one network and the type of wireless device determines whether a CDMA or GSM carrier is used.

WHAT ALTERNATIVES MADE OUR LIST?
Much thought has been put into which carriers are shown on our list of Alternative Networks.  The largest Prepaid carriers are obvious: they have millions of customers and provide reliable service.  Other smaller carriers have proven themselves just by staying in business for a long time and not receiving many complaints.  Others provide a unique product such as "WiFi First", and carriers that appeal to a specific group of users.  What is not included on our list is the Prepaid versions of the main cellular carriers which are reviewed at Mountain Prepaid.
