Expensive Mobile Contracts: More than Half of All Germans Have Too Little Information

WIESBADEN, Germany, December 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Mobile contracts are often in excess of requirements: Peaches AG turns prepaid mobiles into a cost-effective alternative

Mobile users still do not find out enough about the latest tariffs. According to the Allensbach Computer and Technology Analysis (ACTA 2012), 63% of all mobile users only look into current tariff options when they need to for a specific reason. More than a quarter of users obtain no information or facts at all about their mobile contract. "Everyone should work out every now and then whether their current contact is still the right contract. We should be asking ourselves whether our telephone costs would be reduced with a prepaid mobile, for example. It can be very worthwhile to take a closer look at the contract and do away with any unnecessarily expensive agreements," recommends Reinhold M. Sigler, Managing Director of Peaches AG (

According to the Allensbach study, 42% of mobile users already use prepaid mobiles as the cheap alternative to expensive full-service contracts. Peaches AG has long since adapted to the prepaid trend with the prelado platform. Prepaid credit can be purchased easily via the Internet and loaded quickly at Users do not have to register. Users only need to enter their mobile number and the operator, such as Vodafone, O2 or E-Plus, to top up their mobile. At Christmas Peaches AG will be adding an extra service: "With the gift option, you can also top up other users' prepaid mobiles. And in real time," says Sigler.

Mobile credit can also be purchased on the move. Mobility is a matter of course for the prepaid experts at Peaches AG. The free prelado app is available for Android and iOS for just that reason. "Our aim is to deliver an all-round carefree package for our constant companion - the smartphone. But just as a cost-effective version in contrast to expensive mobile contracts."
