Eric Clapton Did It.

Rod Stewart Did It.

You Can Do It Too. Consider Using Skype And Ditch AT&T.

Any number of voice services are acceptable. As long as you live where Wi-Fi is as aplenty as 3G, why not? I don't talk on the phone that much to use AT&T.

My belief is that AT&T should be worried on two fronts:

Angering their customer base and losing those customers to alternative Voice-Over-IP services (VOiP).

And with increasing free hot-spots for data and VOiP, who really needs cell towers?

When I was in Europe, I left my cell phone at home and used my WI-FI Only iPad 2 (no phone on it mind you) and downloaded Skype to call home to the United Stated and make calls for hours all over Europe. Cost was under $10.

You'd think with more mobile phones than people, plus additional devices with WiFi, that truly peer-to-peer networks could be created that would bypass mobile phone companies and ISP's altogether. If some bright engineer really wanted to change the world....

I agree. New technology tends to move in a direction where there is need and demand.

The days of telephone poles have relatively come and gone. Do you think cell towers are next?

Feel free to drop the condescending tone.

The speed of light is only so fast and traveling to space and back takes time.
Anywhere from 3 to 7 seconds depending on atmospheric conditions and the location of the satellite.
Remember... the signal has to be processed once it gets there. ;)
