Oh my... I am not worried about AT&T and everyone having to pay for someone's service., I am sorry, but that is pure bull!!
AT&T does charge 30 buck for what is really limited internet which still brings AT&T GREAT PROFITS! On top of that, AT&T has been charging their loyal customers outrangous price for text messaging. Another service that cost's the company almost nothing to provide. However, it does get AT&T pure PROFIT for the service!!
So, basically they are getting 50 bucks for text and internet and making enorgous profits.
So no need to try to convience anyone about that barn and etc!! So, matter how you spin it, no one is paying for for anyone else's service and AT&T is till making RECORD profits.
Just like the article I read the other day, it is time for a another major player to help stop the customer getting ripped off by what is basically a monopoly.
might want to look up the definitin of a monopoly before attempt to apply it to anything, the restriction is no where near anything that even vaguely resembles one.
when you claim ATT is making great profits, what ar3e you basing this assumption on, are you breaking down the various divisions, are you seperating national from international, private sector from public sector or what - just trying to understand the basis behind your claim and looking for your justification. Is it beofre taxes or after taxes? What exactly are you baseing your statement of "So, basically they are getting 50 bucks for text and internet and making enorgous profits" on - validated information or opinion?
Sorry but the major players are there already, Verizon, ATT and Sprint. T-Mobile is reeling right now, selling towers and laying off workers so it loks like they may drop from their coveted 4th tier spot. What major player are you hoping will step up and de-throne the top 3?
You have a couple of choices that you can execute, if you don;t like the choices then that is not a corporate issue but a personal one. The age of the unlimited data access is as dead as the dodo bird both in mobile and in personal home use of it. The times are changing, the usage is growing exponentially and contols are being put in place. Welcome to the brave new world
