Amazon wants to buy Boost Mobile from T-Mobile and Sprint

By Anton D. Nagy May 31, 2019, 6:00 am

Amazon dipped its toe in the smartphone business water a couple of years back with the Amazon Fire Phone, and now it looks like the retailer could be interested in providing network services as well. According to a Reuters report, citing unnamed industry sources, Amazon is allegedly interested in buying off Boost Mobile from T-Mobile and Sprint.

Boost Mobile is currently one of Sprint’s prepaid offerings, but, in the grand scheme of the T-Mobile-Sprint merger, the acquisition would allow Amazon to utilize T-Mobile’s network for at least six years, according to one such anonymous source.

While it is unknown why the largest U.S. online retailer would want to expand into network operator services, neither Amazon, T-Mobile, nor Sprint commented on the report at the time of this post.
