    Tracfone Inc. , the largest prepaid mvno, owned by Carlos Slim, one of if not the world's wealthiest men is taking over Page Plus a major independent Verizon mvno. Jobs with the US company will be outsourced overseas.

    This is the second major independent mvno (built on the backs of small time mom and pop dealers) that has been bought out in the last two years alone (the other was Simple Mobile, a Tmobile mvno).

    Please help to keep further consolidation and potential monopolization in the US prepaid wireless industry in check by signing this petition to bring it to the attention of the White House: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/pet...p-inc/cjQGHVyl

    A petition like this helped them to reconsider the recent laws which basically outlawed phone unlocking. We need your consideration and help to try and achieve something similar with this petition.

    We have only a short period of time and a lot more signatures are needed.

    Thank you all for your support. ...

    Exactly right. MVNOs donít typically receive domestic roaming privileges. Some MVNOs do have roaming but they are also more expensive.

    If USCC/AT&T roaming coverage is a need, then you might be...

    Wow - So that's the danger of posting/tweeting out of context snippets of a 64+ page document. That complete paragraph on page 29 and 30 lists reasons they are NOT limiting the auction to only vacant...
