RumorTT: Amazon is working on its own wireless network

RumorTT: Amazon could soon reach for the clouds with its own wireless network (NASDAQ:AMZN)

This is something I didn't expect to read on the weekend, but US retail giant Amazon is rumored to be testing Globalstar's wireless satellite network to see if it could build a wireless service of its own.

If they did, the timing couldn't be better, as Amazon's video viewing audience is continuing to balloon, reaching 38 million unique views last month. On top of that, the amount of time that consumers are spending watching videos on Amazon has doubled over the last six months. What is helping fuel this? The company's Kindle and Kindle Fire range of tablets.

 

If Amazon built its own wireless network, it would give them total and utter control over its content distribution, which is the same as printing money essentially. Amazon could soon be running its own wireless network, blasting out content to Kindle and Kindle fire devices, to anyone across the United States.
