Not Surprised

Given AT&T's record with the iPhone this behavior doesn't reall surprise me.

What does surprise me, is the lack of consumer revolt.

While I can say I'm agreeing with you on being surprised and all myself... but really, I'm not. The average consumer is, well.. stoopid. They're not revolting becuase "they" (and by that, I mean the overwhelming majority of..) are not un-happy with what they have. Rather, they are perfectly content with their iPhones and other offerings.

I think a minority of people, who actually have more needs and desires, are the ones that care.. and this site represents an un-representing number of people in the over all scheme who want more and expect more.

You could certainly say that, but the demanding consumer of today is the regular customer of tomorrow...

They should start planning... but by the same token, other folks should just get with it and not get AT&T.

My experience with Canadian Telecom would certainly not reflect that view.

Don't get me wrong, they're planning, but not to meet demand, only how to milk more cash at the same level of service.

Are we talking about Canadian providers? or AT&T? ... just want to be clear.

You stated they (AT&T) were planning. I stated that in my experience (which I have none with AT&T) is that they don't plan for more use... just more money.
