Yep, it reads like an April Fools’ joke. But actor Ryan Reynolds has purchased an ownership stake in Mint Mobile, the low-cost wireless carrier I tested a while back.
“While every other tech titan is off chasing rockets, I’ll corner the budget-friendly wireless sector,”
Mr. Reynolds is quoted as saying of his purchase. “Like most people, I only use rockets 10-12 times a year, but I use my mobile service every day.”
According to the announcement, Ryan Reynolds purchased an ownership stake in the company because he likes Mint Mobile’s consumer-focused and unconventional approach. “Mint is making wireless way more affordable at a time when the average American is paying 65 dollars a month,” he says. “I’m excited to champion a more practical approach to the most essential technology.”
The actor, best known for his role as Deadpool in a growing series of films based on the Marvel comic, says he will help with Mint’s communications, marketing efforts, and strategic decision-making going forward.
You can learn more about Mint Mobile, which offers wireless plans for as little as $15 per month, from the firm’s website.
