...because someone has to let subscribers know when their carrier introduces a better deal!
Wireless services have become a commodity and Unlimited voice, text, and data are now offered by all wireless carriers. Due to SmartPhone over-saturation, the carriers are now forced to market their services, not to new subscribers, but the current subscribers of their competitors. In order to do this, they must make the offerings extremely compelling. The good news for existing subscribers is they are also eligible for these new deals. The bad news is they will never hear about them from their carriers. In most cases, the new deals are better but there are exceptions. Until Verizon one-upped them, both Sprint and T-Mobile offered Unlimited 4G LTE. If you read their fine print though, you'd have noticed that both carriers dropped the resolution from high (1080p), to Standard (480p). Neither included HotSpot service. As soon as Verizon introduced an Unlimited 4G High Definition Unlimited Plan offering 10GB of additional Hotspot use, both Sprint and T-Mobile immediately copied them.
T-Mobile's CEO, John Legere, fired back by doing the Unthinkable. You know all of those carrier recovery fees, PUC fees, and taxes on your monthly bill... - Gone! T-Mobile is the only carrier that is eating all of the fees and taxes for their customers which amounts to 10-15% less on your phone bill. If that was not enough, T-Mobile then offered a 2-Line/$100 Unlimited Everything plan with HD 4G LTE, and 10GB of hotspot. For the first week of March, they threw in a FREE 3rd line. Yup, that was 3 UNLIMITED Lines for $100. As this is our business, we monitor this stuff anyway. If you snooze, you lose, as the third line was only offered for one week.
If all of the above wasn't crazy enough, often times the retail promotions get better than the Enterprise 100+ user rates. That's because there is never any carrier competition in the business channel, it's all about retail. Dr Wireless knows when it's time to bust a move and can save you a lot of money and aggravation. As your wireless account manager, we not only act on your behalf as an authorized dealer, we also will contact your carrier as you, and negotiate a better deal than any end user could ever get. That's because we know how to get to the retention departments, we are aware of off-sheet rate plans, and we are also aware of discretionary funds available for retention. We do this for two years from the time you retain us. When your carrier comes out with a better deal, we read the fine print, then contact you with our recommendation. Implementation is your choice. As Dr Wireless normally charges $100 per hour labor rate. $200 for this service with two years of account monitoring is a remarkable deal. We are so sure of this program that we offer a one hundred percent refund for anyone that feels they did not get over $200 worth of savings and value.
