Wireless Price War

Recent data on wireless price suggests an average monthly bill of $61.15 up from $55.80 in the first quarter of 2010. Does this indicate a price war between cellular service providers? This would hardly be the case. But why do consumers think that a price war is underway?

Lets examine the options:

Sprint’s “Framily” plans, a group of at least seven people will get unlimited talk, text and 1 GB of data for $25 per month per line. Family members can each pay $20 per month per line to buy unlimited data and new phone every year. To get this seemingly attractive price, seven or more people have to join the group. For individual account, the cost could be as high as $75 per month and as low as $55 per month per line for unlimited talk, text and 1 GB of data.
