The article focuses on the New Millenium Research Council's (NMRC's) survey on the effect of economic downturn to the demand for prepaid services in the U.S. The survey concluded that only half of consumers use prepaid phones. According to Allen Hepner of NMRC, the lower level of use in the U.S. is accounted to consumer uncertainty and myths regarding prepaid phones.
