Have you ever wanted your own mobile phone company? Wireless data carrier? Well, now you can (apparently). The mobile companies are cooperating more with mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs), which “essentially resell the voice and data services of big operators, but often at much lower prices and with more flexible plans.”
Carriers, who are always looking for ways to expand their customer base and—after years of trying—feel that cooperating with MVNO’s are worth trying again.
Sprint, which runs the MVNO’s of Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile, is more amenable to new partners on their network.
It is an interesting opportunity for entrepreneurs to reach out to newer niche markets that may be underserved by the big carriers.
