Complete List of AT&T Wireless MVNOs

We've compiled the complete AT&T Wireless MVNO list so that you don't have to go searching all around the web for a great wireless deal. A mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) is an "alternative carrier" that leases network coverage from one of the large carriers (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon). Much of the time, these carriers can offer cheaper service by targeting smaller markets or removing features that many people won't need.

Thanks to the size and quality of AT&T's 3G, LTE, and 5G network and support for most unlocked phones, AT&T is an easy choice for an MVNO. Still, many of the best MVNOs use one of the other networks, or even multiple networks, and may be a better fit for you.

You need to make sure that your phone has the following GSM bands to work with an AT&T-based MVNO. Alternatively, you can check your IMEI on the website of most of these carriers.

  • 3G: 850, 1900Mhz
  • LTE: AWS, 700, 850, 1900Mhz
  • 5G: n5, n260

Here are the MVNOs powered by AT&T.

Airvoice Wireless

Starting as low as $5 for five days of service, Airvoice is a highly flexible MVNO. With Airvoice, you can pay as you go or buy a month of service, with high-speed LTE service in data packages that fit pretty much any user's needs.

With unlimited service coming in at $63 with autopay for 30 days of service, it's not the best value for heavy users, but thanks to the wide array of plans, there's something that will work for everyone on this carrier.

Altice Mobile

If you are an Optimum or Suddenlink customer, Altice Mobile might be worth considering. For those customers, an unlimited plan is just $45 per month per line with autopay. The price goes up to $55 per month if you are just looking for mobile service alone.

These prices are a decent deal, and it's worth keeping in mind that this carrier makes use of both the former Sprint (now T-Mobile) and AT&T network. If you are covered by Altice's service, it can be a good way to save some money on phone service.

Black Wireless

Black Wireless is an MVNO that simply aims to save you money. It offers unlimited monthly data plans, which give you an allotment of 4G LTE data, and then you get unlimited data at 2G speeds with some plans.

$15/month gets you 200 minutes or texts (or a combination of both), 200 international minutes with calling to landlines in a wide range of countries, and 500MB of 4G LTE data, with unlimited 2G data at 128Kbps.

$30/month gets you 10GB of 4G LTE with unlimited 2G data, unlimited talk, and text, and unlimited international calling. All of these plans are also available at a discount if you buy six or twelve months at once.

Boom Mobile operates on three different networks. For AT&T service, you'll want to stick with the Boom Blue network.

Plans start at $20 per month with unlimited talk and text plus 100MB of data. You can also bump up to unlimited data for $60 per month. There are more plans available, including shared data plans for multiple lines as well as three-month and 12-month bundles.

Consumer Cellular

Consumer Cellular is relatively run-of-the-mill when it comes to MVNOs: it aims to save you money on your monthly phone bill. However, it's been recognized twice by J.D. Power and Associates for its excellent customer service. You can also score a 5% discount if you are an AARP member.

You can build your own plan with one to three lines, choosing from 250 minutes or unlimited, as well as data in 500MB, 3GB, 10GB, 15GB, and unlimited plans depending on your needs. There's also the option of skipping texting and data altogether if you want a plan that keeps things simple.

Cricket Wireless

Cricket Wireless is pretty much the biggest player in terms of MVNOs that use AT&T's network. It has excellent plans, and that's due in no small part to the fact that it's owned by AT&T. Cricket is one of the few prepaid carriers to support 5G on its data-only plans and top unlimited plan.

Plans start at $30/month for 2GB of 4G LTE and unlimited calling and texting. $40/month gets you 10GB of 4G LTE. Finally, there are the two standard unlimited plans for $55 and $60, with the latter offering faster download speeds and 15GB of hotspot data.

Easy Go wireless is a brand from H2O wireless that focuses on international service. For $30 per month, you get access to unlimited talk and text, as well as unlimited talk to more than 80 countries (calling to Guatemala and the Dominican Republic is limited to 200 minutes). You also get 2GB of data.

If you're willing to go with only 500MB of data per month, you can drop down to the $20 plan, although you also only get unlimited calling to 11 different countries.

FreedomPop

The 1GB plan starts at just $15 per month, whereas the unlimited LTE plan with unlimited data, talk, and text costs $55.

FreedomPop sells a decent range of Androids and iPhone, although all of the models are a few years old, so you'll most likely want to bring your own device.

Net10, owned by TracFone, uses all of the Big Three's towers to help with coverage, which means you get solid coverage for a little less than you'd spend going with one of the biggies. The nice thing is that, because Net10 uses everyone, you get to bring pretty much any phone onto the network.

All smartphone plans come with unlimited talk, text, and 2G data. $20/month gets you 2GB of 4G LTE, with more plans available at 5GB, 10GB, 40GB, and an unlimited plan up to 60GB. The smaller plans are great values, but the larger data amounts aren't as good as some other carriers. The network flexibility still makes Net10 Wireless a welcome option.

  • I've been using H2O for about 4 years. Not perfect, but very good. Data costs on the pay-as-you-go are a bit high, but my data plan is Wi-Fi. Support used to be questionable, but I haven't needed help for a while. I'll check the others to see if I've missed something.
  • I looked at all the other plans. Only Black Wireless was comparable and beat H2O on the $10 for 500mb add-on since both charge IMHO an excessive 10¢/MB on PAYG. H2O beats everyone on the $30/mo unlimited plan with 3gb of data.
  • H2o recently have some good offers.
  • I am currently Using H2O, And Since, I travel alot, I find its $30 Monthly plan good, affordable and better then others.
  • Happy Cricket customer here even e my verizon phone not getting all the bands.
  • Happy Cricket customer here too. Reliable signal thanks to AT&T and 5 lines for only $100. Their limited 8 Mbps for download is good enough for youtubing and not an issue at all for my family.
  • Which plan is 5 lines for $100? That sounds great
  • Basic - unlimited talk/text (that I am sure nobody cares nowadays) and 3 GB LTE data. $40/line, $70/2, $90/3, $100/4, and the 5th line is free.
  • Cricket is a wholly owned subsidiary of AT&T, and are a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) as described in this article..
  • You forgot FreedomPop on that list. Their Global SIM service uses AT&T's network.
  • Thank you. I just saw that was a recent development! I will update it when I have a second.
  • LOL
  • Att go phone and cricket are not mvnos, they are wholly owned and operated by att
  • This
  • Cricket is owned by AT&T but is still an mvno, as told to me by the local Cricket store in Nov/16.
  • Wrong. See definition below. A mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), or mobile other licensed operator (MOLO), is a wireless communications services provider that does not own the wireless network infrastructure over which the MVNO provides services to its customers.
  • Cricket was originally part of Leap Wireless International which was acquired and merged into AT&T in 2014. It operates as a MNVO on the AT&T network.
  • Wrong. See definition of MVNO above
    If the company is owned by the company that owns the network, it is not an MVNO.
  • :-/
  • Band 12 is T-Mobile 700MHz LTE. AT&T 700MHz LTE is band 17.
  • I wouldn't mind, but Band 17 is AT&Ts primary band- they tend to use the other bands in areas where 17 is not available.
  • How do you beat Straight Talk's unlim talk/text and 5GB of LTE/mon for $45 + $1.27 taxes/fees (Virginia)? I'd like to know. I've had 'em 4 yrs and only have had to call for tech support twice and they were great.
  • With Crickets $45 a month for 8GB plan. I had my two kids on Straight Talk and switched them to Cricket a few months back I pay $90 and they each get 8GB LTE (limited to 8 mbps download). Their voice mail works now as well and transcribed VM on their iPhones which never worked on straight talk. The service is top notch in DFW.
  • GoPhone and Cricket are not an MVNO. A mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), or mobile other licensed operator (MOLO), is a wireless communications services provider that does not own the wireless network infrastructure over which the MVNO provides services to its customers.
  • GoPhone is a product of AT&T, not a separate company.
    Cricket is a separate company, owned/operated by another AT&T subsidiary: AT&T Mobility
  • That is correct. According to the definition of MVNO, a company is only an MVNO if it is not owned by the same company that owns the network.
  • GoPhone is NOT an MVNO.
  • Did you want a separate article for wholly owned subsidiaries?
  • Also, Band 30 is AT&Ts new band going forward and it will need to be used for 3XCA
  • Go Phone and Cricket are both owned by AT&T, so they aren't strictly MVNOs. For lower data users I have found PureTalk to offer the best customer service experience--very easy activation and no gimmicks. When you do have a problem, and you will with any carrier, you can speak to a real human being located in the USA who understands you, unlike with many carriers. No taxes or fees. GoPhone's plans offer very similar service to full AT&T, without the taxes, fees, and nonsense bills stretching to pages. Just charge sales tax. Cricket gives you a lot for the money, but beware of odd fees and iffy cs. They throttle LTE to a max of 8mbps. No taxes or fees. H2O offers a lot of bang for the buck, but sometimes requires battling with cs if something isn't right. No taxes or fees.
  • Note, At&t recently lowered their prepaid plans. I have been a huge fan of Straight Talk and Total Wireless over the past several years but At&t prepaid is now $40 per month (with auto pay) for unlimited talk / Text + 4 GB of high speed data, (with 1 month of data rollover). Point is I dropped the middleman (MVNO) and went direct. You should look into this too....
  • Att uses band 17 ....12 is T-Mobile
  • Oh I see someone already said that... Nevermind
