Tracfone to offer SmartSIM to dynamically switch carriers?


Recommended Posts

It's nothing new, after all GoogleFi has been offering a similar service for a while now (I actually had it for a little while). But GoogleFi has not been advertised or promoted much and you always worry that it will be become abandonware. Tracfone is the nation's largest MVNO at approximately 21M. They have MVNO agreements with all four carriers (3 after April 1). Google had to build their own core so Tracfone is probably doing something similar. They also had to build a line of phones with special firmware (Nexus and Pixel). I know that Apple also took some patents out detailing their approach. I think it is exciting that somebody like Tracfone is following in Google's footsteps.

In theory you can end up with the best service this way.
