ROK Mobile Brings Back Sprint as an MVNO Partner

ROK-mobile-sprint-mvno
When ROK Mobile launched around three years ago, it started out as an MVNO operating under Sprint and T-Mobile's networks. Shortly after its launch, ROK Mobile brought in Verizon as its third network partner and decided to drop Sprint and T-Mobile altogether. This led the MVNO to exclusively run under Verizon, which prohibited them from offering competitive prices to their customers. Not to mention, Verizon has a moniker for being an unfriendly MVNO partner since it limits the network speed. As a result, there was a huge drop off in interest on the MVNO.

Last year, ROK Mobile had no choice but to start throttling data instead of offering unlimited data. Considering they charge $49.99 per month for 5 GB of data, it's a pretty hefty price for their customers to pay. And comparing this to the price charged by other Verizon MVNOs, it seems unfair to be paying such a huge amount for something you can get cheaper elsewhere. To add, there have been a number of complaints about ROK Mobile's music streaming service.

These issues may soon be taken care of with the latest announcement ROK Mobile made on its Facebook page. According to the MVNO, they will once again be operating under Sprint's network along with Verizon.

Now that they are extending their service to Sprint's network, the MVNO has added new plans:


  • $20/month - includes unlimited talk, text, and 500 MB of hard capped data
  • $30/month - includes unlimited talk, text and 1 GB of high speed data
  • $40/month - includes unlimited talk, text and 3 GB of high speed data
  • $50/month - includes unlimited talk, text and 5 GB of high speed data


The top tier also comes with ROK Life Premium Life plan, an insurance service that includes roadside assistance, telemedicine, accidental death insurance, and many more. 

With the MVNO's decision to run Sprint's network once again, it is hopeful it will be able to extend its services to those who prefer this carrier over Verizon. Hopefully, ROK Mobile learns from its mistake and will make this a permanent solution.

    1. They're comparable to Metro, except for the $50 plan.

  5. So it's a choice between terrible speeds or terrible coverage.

    They should've brought back T-mobile, if only because GSM service is easier to activate and AT&T MVNOs get deprioritized to hell and back.
