DayPass option lets “walled garden” subscribers access mobile web on demand.
ClearSky Mobile Media, Inc., a leading provider of managed data services and content to wireless carriers and their subscribers, today announced the launch of its new DayPass™ service. Already, six of ClearSky’s three dozen carrier clients in the Americas have either deployed DayPass in production, or are planning a roll-out to their respective subscriber bases.
“ClearSky recognized that only 10-20 percent of a carrier’s subscribers typically purchase a data plan, thus leaving the vast majority of subscribers without any access to the mobile web,” said ClearSky’s executive vice president of sales, Tony Tagliareni . “Because we create a revenue sharing arrangement with each of our carrier clients, we wanted to offer them a way to improve their data ARPU while addressing the mobile browsing needs of their underserved subscribers; hence DayPass was born.”
“All our clients’ solutions are designed with the goal of maximizing their data ARPU. For this reason, we encourage all of our clients to implement both an ‘open access’ and ‘walled garden’ instance of our popular WAP Gateway service,” said Frank Danielson, ClearSky’s chief technology officer. “DayPass is a natural extension of our business philosophy, and gives walled garden subscribers an opportunity to purchase a variety of inexpensive 24-hour passes to specific types of mobile sites on the web.” Currently, ClearSky offers DayPass options for Social Networking, Weather, Sports, and News. Other DayPass categories will be introduced in the coming months.
