Like, Hello?

While wireless carriers might not be thrilled about price wars, CNN is running an article about one company that’s cleaning up. As carriers start pitching prepaid plans to teens, many are relying on a company named Boston Communications to manage the prepaid accounts. The two big ones they handle are Verizon and Cingular. Boston Communications is the company that tracks the minutes and sends out warnings when the callers are running low. I’m actually surprised that these carriers don’t have this capability internally. AT&T Wireless and Sprint PCS both do handle this internally, and if I were Boston Communications, I’d worry that Verizon and Cingular will eventually follow.
