Probably Syniverse, which is another MVNE that is now independent but was at one point owned by Verizon.

So apparently Boom uses two different MVNE's:
Syniverse and Ready

So no wonder different people get different results. And probably moving customers between the two MVNE platforms may be part of the Mailbox issues (although Boom said a programming issue at Boom was part of it).

You are very good at finding things out! And Boom has let a few secrets slip out accidentally.

The MVNO's use an in-between server for authentication and such, data doesn't go straight to Verizon. Each MVNO has at least one server, or in better case more mirrored in different geographical locations.
When you are on cell data, go with the browser on "myipaddres.com". Copy the number.
Then, with that number, check it against whois.domaintools.com/ and you will find where that server is located.

My TotalWireless server is located in Santa Rosa, CA. From VA, back and forth... generates a bigger delay than native VZW.
I think FreedomPop's AT&T SIM is routed trough a server in California too.
Nature of the MVNO beast.

Interestingly, I did a speed test last week from OH with my FP AT&T LTE SIM, and I got 16/11 Mbps. I don't do speed tests often, so I don't know if this was a fluke or not.

This is about the latency. Once connection is made the speed is not affected.

I am on another of the Verizon MVNO - Selectel When I check my IPv4 address it shows Cellco Partnership DBA Verizon Wireless, there also is a local IP address which is different. So even though Selectel is still on the throttled data speeds, the results tell me neither of the 2 MVNE's mentioned above.

Yes but you're just seeing Verizon's name. There is nothing that says your IP address would show the name of any MVNE that may or may not be involved. The MVNE is an enabler, not a carrier. Everything is virtualized these days anyway.

"Cellco Partnership is Verizon Wireless's official, legal business name. It is not an MVNO and it doesn't have anything to do with being on a different network."

I think what you are looking at is not meaningful either way.
