About Boost mobile
Boost Mobile is a pre-paid wireless communications brand marketed by independent operators in Australia and the United States.
In Australia, Boost Tel Pty Limited provides products and services under the Boost Mobile brand as a MVNO hosted on the Telstra network.
In the United States, Boost Worldwide, Inc. provides products and services under the Boost Mobile brand as an MVNO hosted on the Sprint iDEN and CDMA networks and the Clearwire WiMAX network. Boost Worldwide is a wholly owned subsidiary of Sprint Nextel Corporation and is based in Irvine, California.
Peter Adderton founded Boost Mobile in Australia and New Zealand in 2000. Adderton founded Boost Mobile in the United States in 2001 as a joint venture with Nextel Communications. Nextel Communications became the sole owner of Boost Mobile’s United States operations in 2003. Sprint Corporation acquired Nextel Communications in 2006 and Boost Mobile became a subsidiary of the merged company.
In 2007, the Boost Mobile brand ceased being used in New Zealand.
Although the Boost Mobile Australian- and United States-based operations share a common founder and brand name, there is no business relationship between the two companies.
