Consumer Reaction to Mobile Phone Promo

A new Harris Interactive survey shows that two-thirds (66 percent) of U.S. adult mobile phone users comparison shop for wireless service providers, with more than two in five (43 percent) beginning to do so two months before their current service contract expires.

While providers are having some success with promotional offers (29 percent of mobile phone users who receive promotional offers have responded to at least one offer over the past two years), these offers do not stop most consumers from comparison shopping and also have little impact on customer satisfaction.

If providers hope their promotional offers will cut down on the number of subscribers who comparison shop and increase customer satisfaction, they are in for a let down. Most (98 percent) mobile phone users who receive promotional offers and comparison shop say these offers do not stop them from comparison shopping. Furthermore, 85 percent of those who receive promotional offers say these correspondences do not leave them feeling any less nor any more satisfied with their wireless service provider, and 84 percent say they do not leave them feeling any less nor any more valued.

In fact, these offers have the opposite effect on some as nine percent of those who receive offers say they make them feel less satisfied and eight percent say they make them feel less valued.

Trillion-Dollar Smart Power Grid Transformation

The global energy landscape is undergoing a significant transformation. Renewable energy sources like solar and wind are rapidly gaining ground as we transition towards net-zero emissions. However, this transition hinges on a crucial but often overlooked factor: the modernization and expansion of our aging power grids across the globe. For decades the backbone of our electricity delivery system has been largely static. The influx of variable renewable energy sources like solar and wind presents a new challenge. Smart Power Grid Market Development Integrating these resources effectively requires a Smarter, more Responsive grid that can handle fluctuating power generation and efficiently distribute it across vast distances. This is where a new trillion-dollar energy market growth opportunity emerges. According to a recent worldwide market study by ABI Research, global investments in public grid digitalization and transmission network expansion must exceed $4 trillion by 2030 to meet our
