Big Carriers vs. Small Carriers in Nunavut
Did you know that there are dozens of small carriers that run on the major networks, but charge a fraction of the price for service? These companies are known as Mobile Virtual Network Operators, MVNOs for short. MVNOs purchase network service from the major providers at wholesale prices, then pass the savings on to consumers.
If you're interested in Telus coverage, for example, but are looking for a better deal, PC Mobile, Koodo, Public Mobile, and PhoneBox are just a few of the smaller providers you'll want to check out.
