With the rise of smart-phones, access to data has become a main selling point for many companies within the sector. Many companies initially marketed plans with unlimited data access to attract customers and get them accustomed to their product's value. However, as smart-phone users typically use around 10x the data of a typical mobile device, the availability of unlimited data quickly became burdensome on the slowly upgrading wireless infrastructure of the sector.

Companies have adapted using different strategies. Sprint Nextel Corp. has chosen to maintain their unlimited plan offering and simply raise their base price by $10. This is in hopes of maintaining the customer base they have attracted by offering inexpensive and truly unlimited plans. It is speculated that companies using unlimited plans will have to reduce the speeds at which their customers access the network during peak times when the networks have become bogged down. Other companies within the sector are choosing to adopt per-MB fees that charge volume users more than customers using less.
