The first terminal will cost 45 USD and 25 USD for each additional month, which will conclude agreements to be distributed from the end of September in the nearly 2,500 Wal -Mart stores, as both companies announced on Monday. The target group are customers who place little value on prestigious devices like the iPhone and are looking for an inexpensive alternative.

In the first quarter of 2010, the subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom AG lost more net 118 000 contract customers. In the second quarter , although they reported an increase of 106,000 customers , but this was significantly less than the top dog AT & T and Verizon have registered to feed .
