All the post-iPhone smart phones have blown up the amount of data users take in while at the same time they killed the additionaly revenue streams carriers used to get. (Like charging extra for GPS maps and stuff like that.)
In addition, I think something like less than 20% of Americans have Smartphones. So over the next few years usage is going to explode as more users buy smartphones and those smartphones start to do more and more.
So like I said...not surprising.
obama told the FCC to permit the carriers to raise prices on and charge for data use. Glad our government is watching out for us!
Wrong. The government is on the side of big business; they are the ones that contribute millions to election campaigns and slush funds.
Our goverment to do something to help the poor every day consumer?
Who should pay for data use? The people using it....
And what do you think goes on right now?
I don't get free data, do you?
No, it isn't free. It's costing more due to more/faster smartphones, thus the rising price of data. They're complaining about prices rising. If you want unlimited data, you'll end up paying for it....
I think the Sprint one amused me the most. Instead of charging only some users an extra $10 for 4G, Sprint is charging everyone the same price now, making it "simple and affordable." L-O-effin'-L.
I seriously hope you weren't oen of those against health care reform, "Too much government intervention" individuals. Anyways, I'm seriously not surprised. Data prices have been peaking recently, even my home broadband jumped by $10 not too long ago. Thanks U-Verse (AT&T).
What does this have to do with the government? Companies are free to set their own prices for the products and services they offer. You're free to say yes or no.
The Telcos are colluding.
