Started by Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales in July 2015, The People's Operator (Also known as TPO Mobile) was a prepaid carrier using the Sprint and T-Mobile networks. As part of their branding, they allowed subscribers to choose charities and a portion of their monthly bill would be donated to causes they wanted to support.

On November 27, 2018, TPO Mobile announced that they would be shutting down their US service and would transfer existing subscribers to a competing prepaid carrier Ting. Since they also provide service using the T-Mobile and Sprint networks, existing TPO mobile devices should be compatible.

Solid service at fair prices

from MoneySavingPro

Like other smaller cell phone carriers, TPO offers service at a significantly cheaper price. What makes them stand apart from the rest is their devotion to supporting charity and social causes. Portions of your cell phone bill and their profits go to organizations to help those in need.
