Amazon is considering increasing the value of membership in their Prime program for customers. According to a story published by Bloomberg, the company is reportedly already in discussions with major carriers based in the United States about providing an affordable alternative, or even free phone service, to the users of those carriers. Amazon is now in negotiations with three of the most prominent wireless carriers in the United States: Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobiles. Customers should plan on paying approximately ten dollars (USD) each month for the service. According to reports, Dish Network is also in the running, even though negotiations with AT&T are apparently not progressing as smoothly as expected.
It has been confirmed by the publication that Amazon has been in discussions with carriers for approximately six to eight weeks. This comes despite the fact that it is likely going to be quite some time before it will really launch. There is still a chance that the project will not be completed, but if it does, it will present Amazon’s clientele with a unique opportunity to take advantage of. Amazon has not, as of yet, disclosed any other specifics regarding the possible operation of or appearance of this feature. Users of Amazon may not receive the same quality of service as they would if they went directly through Verizon, T-Mobile, or AT&T. This is something that cannot be predicted at this time.
At this time, it has not been revealed whether or not conversations have taken place regarding 5G speeds or other advantages such as Apple Music or Disney+ on Verizon or services like Netflix from T-Mobile. It is impossible to predict how things will turn out at this point in time.
