Leap Mulling Session-Based Data Plans
Leap Wireless is considering a move to session-based data plans, said President and CEO Doug Hutcheson at a conference today. Speaking at a Citigroup investor event, Hutcheson said that the idea behind session-based data plans is to provide customers with the maximum flexibility. For example, customers could buy data sessions when needed, or pay for faster connections. Hutcheson said he envisions such options being available directly from a customer's device. He didn't indicate what sort of pricing would be involved, nor when such data packages might be made available to customers. Leap Wireless is the owner of Cricket Communications.
