There is proven consumer demand for these application-based data plans for personalized services in the US and around the globe. Examples of successful data plans include zero-rated music-streaming, HD video-streaming, hotspot quota, roaming quota, and network-based parental controls. These plans have proven to increase new subscriber acquisition and improve customer retention while increasing operator revenues. Now that the FCC is slightly loosening regulations, US MNOs have the opportunity to introduce these personalized application-based data plans. This presentation will discuss a variety of data plans with proven success around the globe and deployment considerations for successful service launch.
