Is Wireless A Better Value Than Wired?

Spending on wireless services is growing while spending on fixed-line services is dropping. Part if this is due to the fact that wireless costs more than fixed-line and fixed-lines are dropping. But are customers getting a good value from fixed-line service? A new study on telecom spending levels found that the average customer spends $61/m on wireless services versus $41 for landline service and $34 for long distance. Since long distance is quickly disappearing from mobile phones, spending $75/m on landline and long distance is making a lot less sense.
