What Network is Straight Talk On?

Straight Talk is a mobile service that is unlike any other popular mobile service out there. Big named providers such as AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and T-Mobile all run and house their own network towers to ensure great data, voice, and messaging coverage. Straight Talk is a mobile service that doesn’t run their own network towers, but instead, they purchase the rights to use the towers from other major providers. This type of network is called an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator), which means it’s not its own wireless network.
The Straight Talk mobile data is just as powerful and fast as any other carrier because it uses connection towers from many other services. The Unimax Hotspot is an amazing device which gives you the connection and speeds you desire when you’re not connected wirelessly.
