It would be interesting to see the geolocation data retention and sharing
policy, and what granularity of data is retained and for how long,
contrasting something that is purely a MVNO on some other facilities based
carrier's network, vs a similar SIM card and phone activated directly with
one of the facilities based last mile network operators (TMobile-Sprint,
ATT, Verizon and the smaller regional players like US Cellular).
