Research In Motion announced that more than 50 carriers have now implemented integrated carrier billing on the BlackBerry App World storefront for their customers.
Technically, there are 52 networks now live, although 21 of them are Digicel networks in small Caribbean islands.
RIM said that app sales increase when carrier billing is offered, with an average of 75% of gross sales transacted through the carrier and average carrier revenues derived from apps increased between 100%-300% after launch.
Ronjon Nag, Vice President for the BlackBerry App World storefront at RIM, said, "We're delighted to announce that over 50 of our carrier partners are now offering integrated carrier billing to customers on BlackBerry App World. We remain committed to developing innovative ways to support our carrier partners, while providing a platform that benefits the whole mobile ecosystem."
