All carriers being hurt by selling iPhones?

08/17, 2:00pm

Carriers Hurt by iPhone

Despite claims to the contrary, Apple's iPhone is ultimately hurting the carriers that have picked it up, a Strand Consult study says. The analyst group maintains that "not one" provider offering the iPhone has seen a financial or market share boost since adding it to their rosters. In many cases, these companies have either seen reduced profit from the heavy subsidies needed for the iPhone or haven't seen the surge in data revenues they expected from customers moving to more expensive smartphone plans.

SingTel posts lower profits due to iPhone subsidy

SingTel positive on iPhone

SingTel, distributing the iPhone in Singapore, Australia, the Philippines and India, has been hit by reduced profits due to subsidizing the device, affecting Singapore figures by $18 million, and Australian figures by $30.8 million. The company believes that early reductions will pay off over the long term, as iPhone subscriptions expand and incorporate higher-value data plans. According to mocoNews, SingTel is reporting early signs that the average revenue per user (ARPU) for the iPhone is 1.5 times as high as that for the overall postpaid subscriber base, indicating a larger profit opportunity going forward.

Singapore to launch iPhone 3G on August 22?

08/08, 10:50am

Singapore iPhone launch

Singapore may be another one of the countries set to receive the iPhone 3G on August 22, according to a new report. Late in July Apple said that the iPhone 3G would be released in 20 more countries on August 22 and up to this point 17 countries have been confirmed. A SingTel spokesman has reiterated a statement, first made in June, that SingTel will bring the iPhone 3G to Singapore by the end of the year and the report claims that it has been "seriously looking at launching the iPhone at the end of August or early September." If true it would seem logical for SingTel to launch on August 22 along side other releases.

iPhone in Singapore?

The iPhone will launch in Singapore in September, according to unconfirmed reports.
