Today, Mint Mobile has a new owner. Famous movie actor Ryan Reynolds has purchase ownership stake in the US carrier. The California-based network offers low-cost data plans with unlimited talk and text to folks who bring their own phones to the network. Mint Mobile is an MVNO that operates on T-Mobile’s nationwide LTE network.
Mint Mobile currently offers a promotion of $45 for three months of service with 12 GB of data per month. You renew your service by paying for a few months at a time, up to 12 months. After the promotional rate, it’ll cost $75 to renew the 12 GB plan for three months. Honestly, their pricing structure can be a bit confusing so make sure you do enough research.
It’s a bit unconventional which is why I like it. Celebrities generally invest in high-end products like skincare brands or delicious gin companies. Yet Mint is making wireless way more affordable at a time when the average American is paying 65 dollars a month. I’m excited to champion a more practical approach to the most essential technology. – Ryan Reynolds
“Mint Mobile’s consumer-centric approach and maniacal focus on generating consumer value has kicked Mint into hyper-growth mode. It’s fitting that the most disruptive wireless company is now owned by the most innovative marketer on the planet,” explained Mint CEO David Glickman.
