The thought of overages is enough to scare most people off.Especially people who have gone over the limit on minutes on a cell phone or long distance.Or those that remember per-minute usage on dialup.Consumers live having expeced bills. It makes them feel more secure by knowing what to expect.If you set $50(example) aside for your net bill and it ends up being $65(again example) that's $15 that got to come from somewhere.
Yes, and also don't forget all the horror stories we're hearing now about how someone racked up a $20,000.00 bill doing data on his wireless phone.
Of course we know that could only happen in Canada or as foreigners call Canada, CanaDUH!!! because our communist system is worst than Russia's.
