Unlimited Data No Longer Gets Mobile Subscribers to Change Plans

While unlimited data plans were once sought after by mobile subscribers who worried video viewing would use up their data allotment too quickly, those plans no longer get customers to switch carriers. That data comes from the researchers at Parks Associates, who report that only 14 percent of mobile customers in the U.S. switched providers as the most recent change to their mobile subscription.

Parks finds that 39 percent of mobile customers have made a change to their account in the past year, but upgrading their plan or adding a new phone are the more common changes. Also, a third of customers haven't made any changes to their accounts in over 2 years. This is at a time when Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T are trying hard to lure new subscribers.

From the article "Unlimited Data No Longer Gets Mobile Subscribers to Change Plans" by Troy Dreier.
