Apple, Samsung and LG...that is a lot of phones That article says that the US market did 167M phones in 1 year? That is more than 1 in 2 people; over half of all men, women and children bought a phone in the US last year? Unless I'm reading that wrong that is crazy.

Satellite ISP: We're getting screwed
said by "fiercewireless.com" :So, they're getting 20/6Mbps UNLIMITED data and pay 50 Euros while we're getting ripped off.
The company has announced consumer packages offering download speeds up to 20 Mbps with upload rates of 4 Mbps to 6 Mbps, making it the fastest satellite packages available in Europe, according to Eutelsat.
The Paris-based company claims that its new Tooway service offers the fastest satellite-based consumer broadband speeds in Europe, and as a bonus includes unlimited 24-hour data downloads. This unlimited download offer, however, is only available to those that subscribe to the 20 Mbps service, the only other option being a lower-cost 2 Mbps service.
Monthly pricing for the Tooway service ranges from 20 up to 50 depending on the download speed and data bundle selected. This is expensive compared with fibre and LTE, but significantly cheaper than previous satellite broadband services, maintains Eutelsat.
What the hell you two, and I mean HughesNet and Wildblue?

said by skeechan:A lot of people like to break their phones. Perhaps that's where the number comes from? :P

Then I change that to "that is a lot of early termination fees"!

Re: Satellite ISP: We're getting screwed We're getting ripped off because huges and wildblue want our money to line their fat pockets that's why.
