Welcome and Latest on Prepaid Competition

Jeff Moore, Principal of Wave7 Research

9:15 am - 10:15 am

The carriers speak about prepaid competition

The competitive environment is evolving, as TracFone has deselected three brands, but has been investing in Total by Verizon and continues to lead at Walmart via its Straight Talk brand. Later this year, T-Mobile will have its own portfolio of prepaid brands. How will this shake out and how will dealers – the lifeblood of prepaid wireless – be impacted?
