I am sorry, but you must not read anything outside this forum.
Plenty of reseach and articles on record profits, talk of their monopolies, pure profits on text plans and much more.
And yes, if these companies are allowed, they will end anything unlimited to squeeze even more profits from the customers. That is why we need more competition in this industry, to guard against these greedy and monopolistic business practices.
You predicted unlimited plans would see tighter throttling and come to an end, however, after great large numbers of customers started complaining and the truth came out what AT&tT was doing. AT&T realized they had been caught and was forced to make some changes giving us more data before throttling. I cannot begin to tell you how much I loved it when the study come out that said AT&T's "tight throttling" due to network congestion was not true. The conclusion of the study it was an attempt to force the customer to unlimited tiered plans.
I suggest you do some homework by doing some keyword searches on Google and read what is really happening.
As for the brave new world you welcomed me to. If it is based greed , corruption and fraud, I have no interest in that kind of world you are so happy to accept. I am an American and we do not do it that way. Perhaps if you were responding to someone in China, Russia, Iran that might fly, but not here.
