Mobile Phone Carriers

25686262_mApproximately 90 percent of American adults have a cell phone.[1] Most people in the United States use Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile as a cell phone provider. While all major mobile phone carriers make political donations to far right candidates, Credo Mobile and Earth Tones are Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) that do not make donations to any political candidate. MVNO’s lease a cellular network from one of the major carriers, such as Sprint or AT&T, wherein network services are purchased at wholesale rates and resold to MVNO customers.
