Just 25% of T-Mobile Subscribers Prefer the Two-Year Mobile Contract Model

Just a quarter of T Mobile USA subscribers prefer the traditional mobile contract model of a two year contract with a subsidized handset, according to Parks Associates.

The research firm finds T-Mobile subscribers have embraced the company's new programs that do not require a service contract. Among T-Mobile subscribers planning to purchase a smartphone, 33% prefer to pay full price upfront, and 31% prefer to pay in monthly installments.

"T-Mobile and AT&T have also tapped into the consumer desire for the latest and greatest smartphone with their early-upgrade programs," said Harry Wang, Director, Health & Mobile Product Research, Parks Associates. "Fourteen percent of smartphone owners plan to upgrade their phone more quickly the next time, and 27% of these consumers cite special operator incentives as the reason for their quicker upgrade."
