No longer carrying the sigma it once had as a service mostly for the credit-challenged, a large number of customers choose prepaid over post-paid. The reasons are many and varied including lower costs for many of the same features and benefits as post-paid plans such as smartphones and advanced feature/functionality.
Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) is another important driver for prepaid wireless as evidenced by an estimated 28 million consumers that own an unlocked device in the USA market.
BYOD is a significant trend as end-users demand flexibility and brand loyalty has evolved to the extent that many customers identify more with their smartphone provider and OTT applications than the cellular service provider. The future of prepaid wireless is very bright as it becomes more fully integrated with mobile commerce by way of stored value and converged services involving next generation technologies such as WebRTC.
