Bango was asked to comment on an article in TechCrunch about use of DCB for iTunes in Germany.

We cannot comment on Apple’s expansion of support for carrier billing, other than to say we are delighted that Apple is extending the use of direct carrier billing following last years support for iTunes voucher sales.

Other app stores, including Google, Amazon, BlackBerry and Microsoft, have found carrier billing to be a successful payment method and  have gradually expanded its availability. We expect  that Apple will see success by increasing its paying customer base through carrier billing and follow a similar path.
