So Much CRAP, they just do not want to pony up for the bandwidth at the head in's to handle the traffic
They are money grubbing assholes just like ATT.
Here do this
if you have an android phone go to settings on 4.2 or above set your data logger for one month and look at how much you use. For me its around 2gigs my wife is about 3 and she regularly sends test shots to clients from hers
even at unlimited levels you really are not using a huge slice. are we capped at home? most places can say no so why should we be when we are mobile it is all a money thing. /rantoff
Verizon had $29 billion in revenue last year from what I've read. I call bull on this one. What it should really say is Verizon's profit margins will slightly decrease if they were to invest in a better infrastructure. THEY WILL MILK YOU FOR EVERYTHING THEY CAN.
They are the only company that charges you to have a corporate e-mail program on your phone. For example I use Good for Enterprise on my phone. Verizon charges you an additional 15 dollars a month on top of your data plan for corporate e-mail. Isn't that the point of a data package? Sprint doesn't do that.
Verizon is a monopoly in most areas. I wish I could switch to any other provider, but they are the only one that is in my area.
Pure garbage. I suppose he expects the method of data transmission to be static as well. We're never going to innovate again and develop more efficient video codecs to transmit more data in the same amount of bandwidth.
His opinion should be referred to as the physics of greed. I'm on an unlimited plan (and my wife) but don't use all that much DATA. Our phones defer to my wireless network when we're home.
All of the cell carriers make incredible profits and all they want is more, more, more,........
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I use Ting which uses Sprint towers. I have 3 phones on my plan and combined we rarely top 3Gb a month. I have to admit the signal quality is often poor and I drop calls alot. But at generally less than $100 a month for 3 lines I deal with it. On Verizon a similar plan would be more than double what I pay now. Unless my company wants to pay for it I am never going back to Verizon.
Scotlail, we ARE capped at home!!!!! My Timewarner cable had an undisclosed cap and I think they eventually made the cap official? And my AT&T Uverse does have a datacap I think it's something like 250gb a month, but for now the caps are high enough that most users will never come close.
On my att ip5 IF I connect to my wifi at home I use about 2-2.5gb a month, if I do not connect to wifi at home I hit upwards of 6gb a month.
As much as I dislike AT&T's plans, I have absolutely no problem with the service, my friends on Verizon say the same but at least I pay less than them for the same thing.
