In June 2020, we saw reports of Venn Mobile not accepting new activations.
As of September, they do not have any plans or phones listed on their site. When asked, they said the are "replenishing inventory" and do not have an ETA of when items will be back in stock.
We recommend using caution if using this vendor.
Venn Mobile is a Sprint-based MVNO that was launched in January 2020.
They offer a smartphone plan with 'unlimited' data with no high-speed data caps, and 50GB of data for use as mobile hotspot for $30/month.
There is no high-speed throttling on this plan, but you may be subject to Network Management after 50GB of data.
The plan also includes 10GB of LTE roaming data in Canada and Mexico, and 1080p HD video streaming.
They have a limited number of phones for sale on their site, or you can bring your own device.
Currently they are only offering Voice Plans. However they do have a tab on their site for Data Plans, although there are no data plans actually listed. When contacted, they responded that they would "most likely" be offering data only plans in the future, but they did not have any details to offer at this time.
