ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the issues concerning the wireless carrier's data plan pricing changes for 2009. It states that the change is stimulated by the slow economy and the rise of advanced services from prepaid carriers. It explains that the increase in the number of handsets that allow users to install third-party applications may also affect the carriers' plan pricing. Views from analyst Deepa Karthikeyan and chief executive officers Paul Reddick, and Chris Pearson are also provided.
