Mobile phone operators in United States made billions by killing unlimited data packages. Cellular operators like AT&T and Verizon were the two most happy operators in terms of earning money but they lost some popularity as a pay. AT&T reported more than $6.1 billion in revenues from mobile-data plans, while Verizon over took with $6.6 billion in hand. These operators also saw decline is rate of adding new customers as other operators are luring customers with more data package at lower rates.
“My only regret was how we introduced pricing in the beginning, because how did we introduce pricing? Thirty dollars and you get all you can eat,” AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson said. He explained how he loses sleep over services like Skype and Apple’s iMessage that also affected their revenue generated with the services like texting and voice calls.
It’s obviously a bad thing for users but US operators are making billions every quarter and they are loving it. Clearly Verizon is moving ahead of all with its expanding LTE network followed with AT&T and T Mobile. Who cares about customer pain? If no options customers have to opt for the best minimum plans.
