Okay, I must've looked past it.
Are you sure it's a telephone company?
I agree on thinking it is, but just to be sure..

I'll add it though.

I am sure it is a mobile network, in fact some previews had mentioned that the mobile's (owned by Niko) network ID turned to Badger instead of Whiz at some place.

A lot of these are from previous GTA's. Even though they're aiming for a totally new experience, I'm glad these have been kept. Nice work Chi. +Rep

I swear, I really think of Sprunk as Sprite. Similar logo, name starts with "s," etc.

Weazel News is totally a play on Fox News. For one, a weasel is an animal, just like a fox (a sneaky and disgusting animal at that, probably Rockstar's commentary on Fox News ). Also it says they "report the right news"...if you think of it from a political sense, that would mean they are reporting the conservative news, which Fox News is usually accused of doing.

Also I think Whiz is more of a copy of Sprint/Nextel rather than Verizon, mainly due to their color scheme.

I've been collecting photographs of puns that Rockstar has placed around the game in order to make a new content page for GTAGaming. So, that might go up pretty soon

I always thought Sprunk was Sprite because of the colors and "Spr" but I guess it could be 7Up in a way.

Sprite and 7up are similar in their own ways aswell.

Hey I posted this once earlier, but I think that Ron Oil company's real life counter part is the Oil company Enron, which went bankrupt about ten years ago.

I agree on Sprunk being Sprite. Same colors, same 'Sp' in the name, same audience. I'll change that, I can't even believe I put 7-Up there, hah. Must be that Fido Dido virus.

You have missed these two brands.
- Jr. Jay's (Dr. Ray's)
- JIM snickers (I am not sure about the real-life brand)
