A U.S. Carrier’s Fear?

by Da'Von B.

Interesting analysis of the decline in SMS usage in Spain by Horace Dediu of Asymco, what would be even more interesting is how the numbers in the U.S. would appear. With iMessage, Facebook Chat, and other free messaging services that only use a customer’s data, the steady decline in SMS usage in the U.S. must concern carriers who charge insultingly high prices for text messaging plans. Then again a substantial drop in SMS revenue with U.S. carriers may have lead to insultingly high prices for todays data plans.

In the end the customer is still screwed unfortunately.
