Breaking Up is Hard to Do: Ideas for Switching your Mobile Phone Carrier
posted by: Mile High Mamas
Fun fact: 51 percent of Americans say it’s easier to find a new romantic partner than a mobile carrier according to a new Comcast survey.
Breaking up is hard to do, especially when we don’t want to deal with the hassle of changing things up even though nearly half of Americans (48 percent) have had a negative experience with their current provider.
Parents: Is It Time to Break Up (with your carrier)?
Parents have the hardest time most of all and are especially prone to be over their mobile provider. One-third of parents (33 percent) say they are done and ready for a change, more than double that of non-parents (14 percent). The biggest gripe for parents is pricing. In fact, parents report they are four times more likely than non-parents to be always looking for the next new plan.
And when families do decide to move on, kids are usually impacted by breakups with mobile service providers. More than half of parents (53 percent) have their kids on their service plans, with kids getting their first phone at the average age of 11.
