Hey, this is what the free market looks like...charge what the customers will pay. They're all still paying. Isn't that what it was all about?

It's not the free market.

The free market assumes that there's no barriers to entry so competition will freely enter and exit the market and that keeps prices fair and service good. Too bad reality and theory don't match.

After all, if Economic idealism and reality actually matched, then we'd of all seen Communism succeed as the greatest economic system ever. Ooops. That didn't work out so well, did it.

Idealism meet reality.

Is this a Macro of yours or something? I mean I know you think it's cute what you say and all, but it really lost it's charm about 10,000 times ago you posted this very line.

What you also forget is that Ma Bell was not loved.. they charged a fortune for services they provided, people HATED "ma bell" and they bitched then too... and besides, buddy, this is about cellular service and last I checked, Ma Bell never provided wireless services...

Seriously.. get off this trip.. it's old.

Sorry, I thought the sarcasm was self-evident.

Glad to see you're still alive. I thought maybe the batteries on your auto-flame had died.
