AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile Could Face Disruption From Unlikely Competitors - Smaller Mobile Providers Reselling Their Service At Huge Discount [telecom]

by Anusuya Lahiri

• A handful of upstart wireless providers like MobileX and DISH Network Corp's DISH-0.69%+ Free Alerts • Boost Infinite failed to gain traction despite offering monthly service plans at less than half the average cost of the major national networks. • Each of these challengers is reselling service provided by one of the big three carriers AT&T Inc, Verizon Communications Inc, or T-Mobile US Inc through wholesale agreements known as mobile virtual network operators or MVNOs, Bloomberg reports.

I find it unlikely that MVNO's will take a substantial chunk of the big

3's customers. Either way, the big 3 are being paid for the bandwidth that the MVNO's are using, and they could just as easily up their rates if they become a threat, since the MVNO's don't have their own equipment.
