Internet pricing and the history of communications (Andrew Odlyzko, AT&T Labs - Research)

In practice, user preferences express themselves through willingness to pay more for simple pricing plans. In addition, there is a strong “threshhold” effect to usage-sensitive billing. Even tiny charges based on utilization decrease usage substantially.

@_discord_267031307945508864:t2bot.iojkilpatr Generally usage growth in our networks is pretty strong. People get service and then a strong trend of more usage shows up. 02:35:48

When Talk is “Free” : The Effect of Tariff Structure on Usage under Two-and Three-Part Tariffs (Eva Ascarza, Anja Lambrecht, Naufel Vilcassim)

In this research we examine how consumer demand changes when consumers switch from a two-part to a three-part tariff. We [...] argue that the free component of a three-part tariff leads to a positive affective response

02:35:52
@bkil:grin.hubkilHowever, usage and overall payment may be increased with a better monetization strategy, subject to marketing research.02:36:42
@_discord_267031307945508864:t2bot.iojkilpatr For our larger networks you can graph usage increase between 2-10% per week. Very consistently with no real upper limit. We've kept backing down prices over the course of the pandemic to account for this. 02:36:43
@_discord_267031307945508864:t2bot.iojkilpatr we've also captured the extra revenue to fund network upgrades required to keep up with additional traffic demand. As far as I can tell the average user doesn't really notice they are paying for one or two percent of an antenna upgrade here or there. At some point the upgrades will become more difficult and we may have to let prices rise enough that users notice. But for now it's been quite nice and elegant. 02:38:42
