A couple of weeks ago Walmart Family Mobile and GoSmart updated their terms of service to include the word TracFone, which can only mean each company is now owned by Carlos Slim's América Móvil brand, or what is better known as TracFone in the USA.  This will certainly be unwelcome news by many who dislike the brand which is known for having less than stellar customer service.

With the acquisitions, TracFone now owns Straight Talk Wireless, Net10, Simple Mobile, Page Plus Cellular, Total Wireless, Telcel América, SafeLink Wireless, Walmart Family Mobile, and GoSmart.  The aforementioned brands are some of the largest and most well known MVNO's and prepaid providers in the USA.  With so many brands under its belt, I do wonder if at some point América Móvil will begin to consolidate its brands.
