 This means that there is no sales growth to be had from chasing new customers; all the upside is now in squeezing more money from existing subscribers.

 

Believe you me, they sure know how to do that. Who said you couldn't get blood out of a turnip?

How is a Family plan near-permanent??

 

I have an AT&T Family Plan. Shared-data, family plan!

 

I will be moving every single line over to T-Mobile. Family plans don't lock you into longer contracts.

I've switched to using: https://ting.com/ recently. Unfortunately they use sprint's network which is kind of crappy, but it does have free voice roaming on verizon's network so I have no problems with voice coverage, and I don't use 3g data much anyway (in most cases I will have access to wifi). Their pricing model is really great for people with low-moderate needs and I'd love to see bigger providers offer pricing like this, they only charge you for what you use, so if you use under the plan you selected then you only pay for the plan that you actually ended up using, and if you use over they just bump you to the next plan, I generally only pay ~15 dollars a month. And its all monthly, no contracts which is nice.
