I am more concerned with the overcharging of customers by all the carriers that trap their customers into two year plans. I find it amazing that the no-contract prepaid companies can buy air time from the major carriers, and turn around and offer service for half of what the majors charge.

Having once been an AT&T customer, then a Sprint customer, and finally a Verizon customer before breaking the bonds (or bondage) with the majors in favor of monthly prepaid plans that work as well or better than the majors, I do not understand how they (the majors) stay in business.

What about land line limits that have creeper into those connections lately too? They seem to be anti-competitive against media streaming for those wishing to “cut the cable” on TV service. Some limits are so low you can barely get a single show a day without getting at the least nasty letters from you ISP or similar slow downs or even cut offs. Just odd that the price for data went from simple connectivity to now the amount of data. Smells of high greed to me.
