T-Mobile announced it will purchase Mint Mobile and Ultra Mobile, which are prepaid wireless brands, and Plum, a wireless wholesaler for about $1.35 billion. The deal will be finalized later this year. Mint Mobile relied on T-Mobile's network and now T-Mobile will expand its prepaid phone offerings.
Mint Mobile's cheapest phone plan is currently $15/month for 4GB of data. T-Mobile's CEO, Mike Sievert said they will not change the price.
Mint and Ultra focus on providing low-cost smartphone service and their options are generally not of much interest to our audience of nomads who seek mobile home internet replacements for RVs, vans, and boats. However, with T-Mobile acquiring these brands, they could potentially offer other options in the future that will be of greater interest to our audience.
Key Mobile Internet Related Considerations:
- Mint Mobile and Ultra Mobile run on the T-Mobile network and primarily provide inexpensive, low-end prepaid smartphone options.
- T-Mobile's acquisition of Mint, Ultra Mobile, and Plum could bring new mobile internet offerings in the future.
