Why Overage Charges for LTE Are a Thing of the Past for Businesses December 19, 2018

Why Overage Charges for LTE Are a Thing of the Past for Businesses, Oceanside-Escondido, California

Expectations of today’s businesses are drastically different than they were 10 years ago. This is illustrated best in how companies engage and support the customer experience. This customer-centric approach has required companies to address all aspects of their business, ranging from business processes, customer experience, and interfaces to how they market and sell to their target customer.

The Role of Wireless 4G LTE

The catalyst to this evolution toward greater customer experience is technology and—more specifically—wireless. Wireless 4G LTE plays a critical role in a wide array of industries. No longer considered a “backup technology,” 4G LTE (and soon 5G) provides the speeds, management, segmentation capabilities, and the flexibility to run both operational (i.e. POS systems and video surveillance) and customer-facing services at an affordable price. 

Data Overages

This evolution has been in the works over the course of the last several years. One hurdle that has hindered the adoption of wireless as a primary connection for business operations was the expense related to data overages. Data overage occurs when a company exceeds their monthly data allowance.  

LTEThe fear of data overages has hampered the use of wireless within businesses for years. As carriers across the board have looked to expand the use of wireless for businesses, some have created unique programs and safeguards. For example, a couple of years ago, AT&T released a new plan; rather than charge additional fees, they reduced wireless speeds to 2G until the end of the billing cycle. The move was made to address overages and gain customer loyalty by reducing unnecessary charges. While this allowed the companies to manage their overages, the reduction to 2G kept wireless from being actively deployed throughout operations and considered as more than a backup solution.
