Now every car can have Wi-Fi with Boost Mobile’s new Connected Car solution

 
  • Boost Mobile’s Connected Car brings premium Wi-Fi to any car for just $20 a month 

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., July 13, 2022 -- In time for summer road trips, Boost Mobile introduces Connected Car, a turnkey solution to enjoy internet on the go. Now with Boost, anyone can get Wi-Fi in their car. Connect multiple tablets, laptops, and phones in your car wherever you go. Now you can stream your favorite shows and movies, surf the web, and listen to your favorite podcasts and songs during those long road trips without tapping into your cell phone’s data plan. Get a remote Wi-Fi hotspot when you add the Connected Car plan that provides always-on, mobile access to 5GB of 4G LTE data for only $20 a month.1

“When traveling in the car, especially with kids, you have so many gadgets and tablets that are streaming games and movies and competing for your phone’s hotspot,” said Andrea Henderson, VP Marketing at Boost Mobile. “You don’t want to drain your phone’s battery or slow down something important like your GPS or have a passenger miss taking an important video call because the speeds are impacted. Turning your car into a hotspot is the solution to modern travel that needs reliable connection and is a safer option than using public Wi-Fi.”

The on-the-go Wi-Fi zone ensures consumers won’t incur excess data charges on their phones while providing the best wireless connection for up to 16 devices, allowing passengers uninterrupted access to stream movies, enjoy gaming, and surf the Internet.

Consumers can easily add their hotspot line to an existing Boost Mobile plan. To learn more, visit boostmobile.com.

The iPhone SE features a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, paired with industry-leading Touch ID security.

Boost Mobile Aims to Offer Free Wireless

 
  • Boost takes page from mobile gaming by embracing gamification to make earning free wireless service a reality

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., May 11, 2022 -- While Americans are facing rising costs of basic necessities, Boost Mobile is helping to bring some relief on the wireless front. Launching today, its new BoostOne app ushers in a new game-changing era, merging the mobile gaming business model into wireless and enabling new consumers to earn rewards that can be used towards free wireless discounts and free service every month across all service plans.

Boost Mobile’s BoostOne app allows users to earn blockchain-backed “Boostcoins” by playing games like “Spin & Win,” watching videos, and engaging with thousands of partners to complete offers to earn coins that can be redeemed for discounted and free wireless service.

“This represents an exciting new business model and a stepping stone into the future for wireless consumers,” said Stephen Stokols, executive vice president of retail wireless, DISH Network. “Most telcos rely on subscription models, but it’s time to move beyond the old ways and to embrace proven digital models popular in other industries,” Stokols added.

This new gamified model connects mobile management to the Web 3 world with a wireless experience powered by blockchain-backed Boostcoins. In the future, Boost expects the coins may be used for additional goods and services like free phones, other third-party products and exchanged with other users.

“This is the next disruptive move to shake up a stale industry that has been stuck for more than two decades with Boost leading the industry into a bold new future,” Stokols added.

Boost Mobile’s latest Carrier Crusher offer ensures 5G access for all: New Celero 5G smartphone and full year of wireless service for just $199

 
  • Boost Mobile’s new offer provides users access to 5G with a one-time affordable payment

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., March 10, 2022 -- Boost Mobile, the wireless carrier focused on empowering customers by delivering unprecedented value, is continuing its popular Carrier Crusher program with the biggest deal yet.

For only $199, new customers can get a full year of wireless service and a Celero 5G smartphone — Boost Mobile’s bestselling smartphone optimized for speed and affordability. Sporting a sleek, premium form factor, the Celero 5G boasts a 6.5-inch screen, 16 MP triple rear cameras, and 36 hours of battery life. The $199 annual plan gives customers 12 months of unlimited talk and text, plus 1 GB of high-speed data per month.

Big cellular typically charges $60+ per month. The latest Carrier Crusher plan will save Americans hundreds of dollars on service, and it slashes the cost of a high-end 5G smartphone — another significant savings.

“The big carriers have convinced us that to be connected means we must pay a premium price and that simply isn’t true,” said Stephen Stokols, head of Boost Mobile. “With 5G as the new standard, our Carrier Crusher plan represents what Boost Mobile is all about. Designed with customers in mind, Carrier Crusher empowers individuals with better choices and the services they need most without the outrageous price tag.”

For customers looking for more data, Boost Mobile offers Career Crusher plans in additional tiers:

  • 5GB of high-speed data per month and unlimited talk and text for 12 months, and a Celero 5G for only $279.2
  • 15GB of high-speed data per month and unlimited talk and text for 12 months, and a Celero 5G for only $340.3

These new Carrier Crusher plans are available today at my.boostmobile.com.

First NIL College Sports Sponsor Boost Mobile "Boosts" Awareness But Warns of Unfair Elitism

 
  • NCAA sponsorships like Boost’s groundbreaking NIL Cavinder Twin deal that kicked off the NIL frenzy are win-wins for athletes and sponsors...
  • Yet as Boost expands its NIL program, it battles the emerging competitive parity

Following Boost Mobile’s historic first sponsorship arrangement with Fresno State basketball players Hanna and Haley Cavinder, Boost continues developing its sponsorship program with college athletes as the race to secure the most promotable athletes in the NIL era is underway. Partnering with football and basketball athletes from top schools like Georgia, UCLA and Gonzaga as well as more than a dozen HBCUs, the mobile carrier understands its most impactful athletes are the ones making a difference in their communities, but warns that it’s not a slam dunk for all. 

Companies paying big money for the most recognizable names are not getting the proper bang for their buck. Such deals deliver questionable ROI to the company and exacerbate recruiting disparities in elite sports in elite schools. 

In addition to helping student athletes monetize their Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) value, Boost Mobile increased awareness of its budget-friendly, commitment-free premium mobile offerings in key markets with six player meet-and-greet events at Boost Mobile locations. To bridge the gap between elite programs and non-elite, Boost immediately broadened its commitments to 100+ mid- and lower-tier student athletes.

“The NIL situation reminds me of music streaming apps: The promise to democratize music ended up starving most artists while a few reap most of the revenue,” said Stephen Stokols, Boost Mobile’s CEO. “If you weren’t Blake Shelton or one of the very top stars, you got a penny per stream, which added up to very little. It’s early, but we’re seeing a similar dynamic with the NIL and want to address it.”

The scope of Boost’s program ranges across a variety of sports like basketball, football, baseball, wrestling, and track. It also crosses the country with schools including Fresno State, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida and Gonzaga, as well as 38 athletes from 17 Historically Black Colleges and Universities including Alabama State, Southern University, Tennessee State University and Prairie View A&M University who will be featured in a social campaign showing the support for HBCU athletes. Collectively, the overall influencer program has an aggregate following of 37 million with NIL athletes representing 50 percent of the talent base. 

Stokols added, “Boost Mobile is doing its bit to spread the wealth so athletes from all sized schools can benefit, but we urge other corporations to play their part in making this a fair game for all. NIL should be an exercise in amateur sports funding, not just trophy hunting.”

The first wave of Boost’s sponsorships provided unique fan engagement and opportunities for these athletes to give back to their communities, such as UCLA quarterback Chase Griffin donating a portion of his sponsorship money to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, and Gonzaga basketball star Drew Timme giving away turkeys to Spokane-area families at Thanksgiving. Timme also visited local Boost Stores to sign autographs and promote Boost’s new low cost wireless plans.

“We knew from the start that helping student athletes gain control over their financial futures and discover new ways to engage with their fans was good business, and very much in line with how Boost puts power back in our customers’ hands,” continued Stokols. “But we’ve been blown away by their creativity and ambition at finding ways to make a difference in their communities, which has been the most rewarding part of this program.”

Boost Mobile to register voters at 3,000 stores and online for National Voter Registration Day

 

By: Andrea Henderson, head of marketing, Boost Mobile

Leading up to National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, Sept. 22, Boost Mobile is helping thousands of Americans register to vote ahead of the Nov. 3 general election, as part of our “Step Up to Vote” nonpartisan initiative.

The freedom to vote is a fundamental American right, and with National Voter Registration Day almost here, we want to register as many eligible voters as possible. While registration isn’t required in every state, all states have minimum requirements. Knowing those requirements and being prepared to vote is an important element of exercising our most basic rights.

Since launching Step Up to Vote in July, we’ve provided voting and local issue information at more than 3,000 participating Boost Mobile stores. Step Up to Vote also has helpful resources online at boostmobile.com/stepuptovote and on our social media channels (@boostmobile). To help reach voters, including first-time voters, the Step Up to Vote platform includes how and where to register; the latest news on elections and changes to voting processes directly from state officials; early voting details; and how to request an absentee or mail-in ballot (where applicable).

Community involvement is at the heart of Boost Mobile’s mission, and we have a strong legacy of supporting the communities we serve and empowering our customers. During the 2016 presidential election, with our "Boost Your Voice" campaign, we transformed Boost Mobile stores across the nation into polling stations to help communities eliminate obstacles such as long lines and traveling far from home. Step Up to Vote is about making it as easy as possible for every voice to be heard in this election, while supporting voters by providing credible and reliable nonpartisan information.

As many people around the world are denied the basic right to vote, National Voter Registration Day is a reminder of our core values as a country and should give us all something to cheer about. With state deadlines approaching, we hope Americans all over the nation will make an all-out effort to register and make a difference at the ballot box.

To register to vote and learn more about the Step Up to Vote campaign, visit boostmobile.com/stepuptovote or find a Boost Mobile store near you.
