Verizon Missing Out on Customers by not Allowing Third Party ContentWritten by Anthony Wayne
Third Party Mobile Content Prized by Cell Phone Users
By Anthony Wayne
Atlantic City, NJ – For years, nation’s largest cellular carrier, Verizon, has operated with a “walled garden” approach to mobile data services, meaning that it would not permit downloads of independent content to its customers. The walled garden, however, may soon fall down.
A recent survey by Handango found that third-party applications had a “strong influence” or “somewhat of an influence” on 69 percent of consumers’ decisions to choose their carriers and phone models. The survey of over 14,000 mobile content users found that ability to utilize third-party content was a “powerful influencer” in mobile phone decision making. The survey also suggests that users of mobile content are more satisfied and less likely to change brands or carriers.
Up until now, Verizon and Sprint have maintained their networks solely for its own mobile data content. This also applied to third-party use of premium SMS. Industry analysts, however, are now speculating that Verizon and then Sprint may soon permit use of premium SMS services on its network for third party content. Apparently, carriers are starting to realize that by not offering this service, it is akin to possibly losing millions of potential customers.
