Ryan Reynolds, a handsome Canadian actor known for his role as Deadpool in the film of the same name, recently made an unexpected announcement on Twitter. Ryan Reynolds will become the new head of US mobile carrier Mint Mobile.
TechCrunch’s source said Ryan Reynolds owns more than 25% of Mint Mobile’s shares after a recent investment. The reason the Hollywood star decided to invest was not disclosed, and the Mint Mobile representative also refused to share any information about the deal.
Mint Mobile is a virtual network operator, operating under the MVNO (Mobile Virtual Network Operator) model. Different from the model of traditional mobile network, MVNO virtual operators do not need to build and deploy telecommunication infrastructure but will use the existing infrastructure of large mobile networks. Specifically, Mint Mobile is using T-mobile infrastructure.
The advantage of MVNO network operators is the price. Because there is no cost to build and operate the infrastructure, so MVNO operators save a large amount of money and from there will have the opportunity to reduce the packages. Currently, Mint Mobile is selling prepaid packages with a cycle of 3, 6 or 12 months, of which the cheapest plan is priced at $ 15 / month – quite cheap compared to other carriers in the US.
“The difference is what I like about it.” – Ryan Reynolds said. “Celebrities often invest in brands such as skin care products or good gin companies. Meanwhile, Mint is making mobile networks more affordable, as the average American spends. pay 65 USD / month. “
