MVNO

Mobile Virtual Network Operator
A company that does not own a licensed frequency spectrum, but resells wireless services under their own brand name, using the network of another mobile phone operator. An MVNO's roles and relationship to the mobile phone operator vary by market. In general an MVNO is an entity or company that works independently of the operator and can set its own tariff structures. Usually, it does not own any GSM infrastructure, such as Mobile Switching Center (MSC) or a radio access network. Some may own their own Home Location Register (HLR), which allows more flexibility since multiple host networks could be used, and the MVNO appears as a roaming partner.
