Quick History of the Mobile Industry

The technology and cost shift history…

  • In the not so distant past…Subsidized Phones: $1 phone + 2 year contract; Carriers cover the cost of the phone
  • Smartphone Emergence: Uncoupling begins; Expensive smartphones with hyper-competitive data plans
  • Plans Become a Commodity: Data plans bottom out; Contracts become uncoupled
  • Financing for a Few: Phone financing only available for above-average credit customers on tier 1 carriers
  • Present day…The Underserved Majority: The inability of average to below-average credit customers to finance a phone, accessories, or insurance
