7:37 am
president obama and others are trying to keep the coalition together, have an orderly hand off and figure out a way to pay the $4 billion annual coast after 2014. >> can president obama and others influence france to delay that and stay in step with the rest of the leaders. >> i think there is some wiggle room but you are not going to hear any sort of change in policy, france faces a parliamentary election in coming weeks and hollande doesn't want to step on his election message contradict himself and create all sorts of internal political difficulties for himself. >> let's say france stays their course, and does pull out early, what kind of problems does that create for the administration which. >> well, -- >> and the nato alliance. >> well, there is a lot of question on the rolewhat is a pull out. if they hand off parts of afghanistan to forces and

7:39 am
all across europe as far asmoney issues greece is having significant problems they bare watching today in terms of what may hanover there, correct? >> greece has arguably the sickest economy, elections coming up june 17th. if you believe the polls it is neck and neck to parties that have bought into the austerity agreement and others who feel it might be bet tore break away from the euro zone. this is significant because until recently talk of a nation pulling out of euro was almost taboo now if you see a run on greek banks because of uncertainty, leading up to this election it could hasten that. this is really quite a game changer. >> in some ways, if greece were to pull out, i would imagine some of the rest of europe would say we are fine with that. >> there is a feeling in some quarters you might be able to contain the worst and the rest of europe would go on. other people you talked to say
7:40 am
problems in spain and portugal and ireland and italy and these other countries with lagging economies dwarf greece. interconnectivity cannot be ruled out. >> thank you for coming in. we will continue to watch it in the coming weeks. thanks good to see you. >> thanks. >> allison. >> 7:40 a.m., 66 degrees on monday morning. new details into the prostitution ring investigation, surrounding former imf chief straws can what he is accused of doing in a -- straws can what he is accused of doing in a dc room. the latest on ter the break  so, ah, your seat good?

8:32 am
customers who sign long term contracts. so what is the motivation, and how can consumers make sure that they are making the best decisions, when they are offered new options joining us now, is pete eriksson founder of modeb. pete thanks welcome back. >> great to be here. >> now i said that money was the motivator for the carriers but is that indeed true with this change that is coming? >> it is important people understand there is a lot of forces at work here. last year the number of devices in the u.s. surpassed the population in the u.s. >> wow. >> so and the carriers have only so mump spectrum for which they can put all these devices and aps on to their network. there is limited supply carriers have to figure out how to best utilize that supply. that with is one of the biggest forces at work. >> so it is not just greed
8:33 am
then, they are trying to supply and demand here. >> no, there is supply is demand and then a change in the way people are using their devices with smart phones online there is a million aps available in the aps stores over 25 billion downloads of these aps that is a tonne of data and you know, if we thing about voice, we got very accustomed to the number of voice minutes we use. the same is starting to happen with regards today at that. i don't think many people know how much data they are consuming but that will be very common place to know how much you are using. >> in the meantime, that is the problem. i look at my cell phone bill i am like what is this? how did i go over this. because that is the problem then what is the best method of action, or plan of action for the consumer n these changing times when we will no longer have the sort of shield of unlimited data. >> right. well, first off unlimited data will still be available the difference is you will have to buy your own device. carriers traditionally will
8:34 am
supplement the cost of that device, very inexpensive but you will be on a plan for a certain period of time. you can remain on an unlimited data plan but buy your own device. that is one change. the other change is that families are going to have shared data, they are going to understand what their minutes are, what their data usage is on a month to month basis and that will drive the behaviour and i say the until burr one thing people need to look for -- the number one thing people need to look for does it work where i live, work and play. if you are working in the city, find the plan that works best where you work. >> these are questions you need to ask. more educated and consumers. >> that's right. we will become more educated consumers we all got very used to the idea of voice now we will get used to the idea of what data we consume and what carriers work best where we live. >> is this every single carrier will be forced to do this
8:35 am
because of how we are changing our habits. >> there is only so much spectrum to go around. until more spectrum is allowed for these carriers to utilize more network bandwidth these changes will take place. we all love our aps and consume a lot of dataove that and innovation, more spectrum will have to come online to satisfy all our needs. >> they are talking about this on the hill. >> absolutely this is a big issue on the hill >> man you have a lot of insight into this we will need it when we head to our stores trying to buy that phone or buy that plan. >> changing time. >> yes. >> we are used to that now. this is pete eriksson. guest of the show come back and see us. i will. >> thanks pete. good information there. >> sorry about that. 8:35 a.m., on this monday morning. a day after his big ipo another
