Over 90 million people in America alone will travel to spend time with family and friends, relying on mobile devices to connect during the holidays. The latest smartphones support countless applications, games and online surfing, which unfortunately have the capability of consuming high amounts of data, tipping cell phone bills over plan limits.
A recent resurgence in mobile bill shock is due in part to roaming overages and an increase in data consumption from new smartphone apps. Some applications continue to run and consume data even when users navigate away. Estimates report that more than 30 million Americans each year are overcharged for cell phone usage.
Anomalous Networks does not want mobile users to be caught in this trap. To encourage mindful mobile usage, the company is giving away a free Apple iPad 2 to the Telicost-Lite user who best encourages others to use its products. By referring friends, users can win an iPad 2 for free while sharing a solution that truly works.
“We want our Telicost-Lite users to give their friends the gift of managed mobile usage this holiday,” said Anomalous Networks CEO Daniel Rudich. “Bill Shock is hitting the masses and Telicost-Lite is a simple, free solution that immediately benefits its users. Preventing bill shock is as easy as checking your usage icon.”
Telicost-Lite is a free smartphone app that gives users instant real-time alerts on their smartphones when they approach their voice, data, and SMS limits and enter into roaming areas, tracking plan usage. Telicost-Lite helps mobile users collect the information they need to change data consumption and avoid excess charges. The free app works with iPhones, Android and Blackberry platforms, and is downloadable at www.anomalousnetworks.com.
