paying customers are paying customers. If they want uptake, their pricing needs to be more competitive rather than raising rates.
They're already cheaper than cable in many places. The only reason cable is cheaper in some places is because cable is feeling the heat from competition.
This is an interesting statement you make... it's funny where the shoe is on the other foot... phone used to RAPE THE HELL out of the consumer until cable came along.. a lot of people seem to forget just how expensive phone was, and quite honestly, still is in many cases.
Phone isn't innocent.. so it's time to stop pretending.
It's about competition.. not phone, not cable, not satellite.. it's competition period.
