About Alternative Wireless Networks

Our mission is to help you find a better or cheaper wireless product and still use the same wireless networks you already know. None of these Wireless Alternatives operate their own network, all coverage is provided by the large national and regional carriers. Alternative Wireless Networks is managed by the Mountain Wireless Cellular Networks, the family of specialized cellular web sites with a huge number of cellular topics, similar to what you find here. You can interact with us there through various social media. These sites are supported by online advertising and we appreciate your patronage by clicking on the ads that appear on our web pages and patronizing our sponsors.  We do not accept advertising in return for favorable reviews or other content, but we do supply links to sites that may compensate us for sales resulting from using those links.  We also look for online discounts that are better or at least different than those offered by the carriers themselves, and post them on our own Moose Wireless Discounts page. We encourage any corrections and updated information you might find.

Much thought has been put into which carriers are shown on our list of Alternative Networks.  The largest Prepaid carriers are obvious: they have millions of customers and provide reliable service.  Other smaller carriers have proven themselves just by staying in business for a long time and not receiving many complaints.  Others provide a unique product such as "WiFi First", and carriers that appeal to a specific group of users.  What is not included on our list is the Prepaid versions of the main cellular carriers which are reviewed at Mountain Prepaid.
