Amazon Could Become An Internet Service Provider In Europe

Report Amazon looking to become an ISP in Europe

According to a report from The Information (paywall; via Android Police), they have heard from their sources that apparently the company is planning on becoming an internet service provider over in Europe. Amazon already offers free two-day shipping, access to tons of music, video, and e-books, as well as online file storage to Prime members.

You can thank me later.

Clarkson's new motoring show is only available on Amazon Prime Video and subscribing to the service will leave you with a bill of £8 per month.

Although details are scarce, The Information believes Amazon is considering bundling internet access with Prime streaming in Europe.

Well, here's yet another business that Amazon.com is looking to dominate.

Whether it would try to establish itself as an ISP in the United States is unknown, but given the regulatory hurdles faced by Google Fiber (who is building its own network) and a general lack of wholesale availability it's unlikely, but it would be odd to see Amazon roll out a service in one market or continent and then not roll it out in other markets, particularly its home territory.

The company has also recently launched its Amazon Echo smart speaker in Europe, and is now working on a new drone delivery system, details of which emerged this week after Amazon opened the doors of its Cambridge R&D lab to the local press.

It's unclear how Amazon plans to bundle the service for Prime users.
