Amp'd Mobile was a so-called "mobile virtual network operator," because it does not license its own spectrum, but resells services using the network of other mobile phone operators. Amp'd Mobile targeted young people, competing with brands like Disney Mobile, Helio, and Virgin Mobile.
After raising over $350m, Amp'd Mobile filed for bankruptcy in July 2007.
