Nearly half (46%) of mobile phone customers pay $100 per month or more for service, and more than 1-in-10 (13%) pay $200 a month or more, according to the results of an online study conducted by Harris Interactive on behalf of CouponCabinthat looks into the cost of mobile phone service in the U.S.
More than 1-in-5 U.S. adults (21%) with mobile phones reported spending more in a typical month for their mobile service than they do on groceries. When asked to cite typical expenses for which they spend less in a typical month than for mobile telecom service, they responded:
--Basic utilities like water, gas and electric – 33 percent
--Cable TV – 57 percent
--Internet service – 71 percent
“Mobile phones are ingrained in our everyday lives, but their high costs can do damage to a monthly budget,” commented CouponCabin’s president and chief savings officer Jackie Warrick. “Many mobile phone owners are now revisiting their plans and looking at ways to cut back.”
