Cricket Wireless Buyer’s Guide: Everything you need to know


Here’s everything you need to know about the AT&T MVNO.

Cricket Wireless is a mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) or “alternative carrier”. MVNOs lease coverage from the Big Four networks (AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon) and sell it to customers for less. The benefit of an MVNO is that you experience the same level of service as a customer on one of the larger networks, but you can often find talk, text, and data plans for a fraction of the cost.

Cricket is owned by and leases coverage from AT&T. If you sign up with Cricket, that means you get AT&T’s 4G LTE coverage, as well as unlimited plans.
