T-Mobile is buying the parent company of Mint Mobile and two other cellphone brands, Ultra Mobile and Plum, for $1.35 billion. Since Ryan Reynolds has a 25% stake, his cut from the deal is a cool $337.5 million. Not a bad return on a four-year-old investment.
What does this mean for current Mint Mobile customers? Only two things are set in stone: the $15 per month pricing and Ryan Reynolds being the face of Mint Mobile.
Pricing for the $15 per month plan will stay the same. What features you might get for $15 per month may change. As for the $30 per month unlimited plan, pricing and features may very well change.
As for Ryan Reynolds, can he still rant about the big carriers after selling out to a big carrier?
