Prepaid surf sticks in the shadow of the flat rates – what are the advantages are they but? In the early days of the mobile phone market, a model called the “Prepaid” came up. This created virtually through rechargeable prepaid tariff model, which have included a fixed cost base and are in principle not a bank account. In Germany, the models were very popular, because you could buy a phone as his children. You had to worry because of high costs, because you just bought a credit balance on a card and filled on this, if it was used up. Parents enjoyed the idea of course that their children in an emergency could call sometimes. The prepaid rate was therefore a kind of permission for the mobile acquisition of minors. This model but nothing more has in common with today’s surf sticks. Minors need no surf sticks, home anzurfen, if there is a problem.
There must be other reasons. Some statements: rare or irregular use: some people need really no Internet on the stick of surf and so a prepaid surf stick is a very useful thing. It pays even money and thus has no ongoing or regular costs. Should you even need Internet access, you can surf just 24 hours for a reasonable price. In the month, pay the flat rate customers relatively practical compared to fixed costs by at least 20 euros. Cost airbag: Prepaid tariffs can also be used, that also in case of a use such as the flat rate (so every day several hours for example) no huge fees are due. The providers make the tariff so that but in a month, the total no longer cost a certain number of days of use. It is then easily above the flat rate prices, has much more flexibility.
No binding treaty: Who knows what’s in 24 months? Who is not happy in the long run binds, because Yes, all kinds of things can happen in the future, which is certainly with a prepaid stick better served. If you move after Nigeria then can be the Prepaidstick just at home in the drawer and also in 2 years to use again, when it comes back. Flat rate contracts should you continue to pay – without that, you can take advantage of his offer at all. So, you can see that even in times where the prepaid model seems really outdated, still many reasons for the choice of such tariff talk. All silencing of most developing countries, where prepaid is the absolute market leader this has but more to do with the forms of payment and risks of customers, as with direct properties of the products.
