How Credo Mobile compares on prices

Credo occupies an odd space in the cell phone landscape. It’s a postpaid service, but like many prepaid providers, it’s a mobile virtual network operator, or MVNO. The prices it offers are similar to or greater than those offered by VerizonSprint and AT&T.

The chart below shows how Credo’s unlimited plan stacks up against competitors. Prices listed are for the least expensive plan when more than one unlimited plan is available. The pricing doesn’t include taxes, fees or autopay discounts. You can also see how Credo compares to other MVNOs.
