PR Wireless will offer a flat subsidy of $25 off five different wireless broadband plans, each with the same end-user charge and usage limits, but with access to different equipment (e.g., USB modem, hotspot modem (mi-fi), tablet, laptop, desktop) that the subscriber would pay for at a discounted amount. The study will collect data on how the type of equipment impacts data usage and adoption.
