Amazon Prime Mobile Service Rumored

Aisha Malik, on TechCrunch:

People familiar with the matter told Bloomberg that Amazon is considering offering wireless plans for $10 a month or possibly for free, in a move to bolster loyalty among subscribers. Currently, some people may cancel their Prime subscription and then sign-up again when they want to. If Amazon were to bundle mobile service into Prime, it would likely lead to people sticking with their subscriptions long-term.

Compelling. As an Amazon Prime subscriber, this would be interesting to me.

We currently subscribe to Google Fi on a family plan, which has worked really well — specially for travel. But the adoption of eSim has started to make temporary data plans very convient and price competitive1.
