I have an idea. Why not lower ridiculous overage charges?
The bandwidth that consumers use when they go over their 5 GB caps doesn't cost the carriers anywhere near what they charge for it. The solution to this problem is simple. Lower overage charges. What a concept, huh.
Such obscene profit levels generated by these huge overage charges should be made illegal if the carriers won't voluntarily lower these prices. Consumers shouldn't have to take it anymore. We own the airwaves that these 3G signals go over. The carriers only lease that spectrum and have to agree to use the spectrum in the public interest. Clearly, the carriers are not operating in the public interest, and they should be made to pay for violating the public's trust.
