Re: Do you trust AT&T's numbers that 98% use less than 2GB?
said by MyDogHsFleas:Asking to compare US carriers to AT&T is asinine, given the uncompetitive nature of the wireless American market. Yet even within the US market one can look at Sprint, T-Mobile, or even Verizon to see that unlimited is quite viable. said by 88615298: said by AzzKicker:
Ya and when that time comes they will adjust. But for now thats how it stands.
Oh so in 2015 they'll have 2010 pricing like how in 2010 they have 2005 pricing. At which point does at&t actually catch-up to modern times?
I keep seeing you say this over and over again. My challenge is: show me the US carrier who is pricing their data at 1/10 AT&T's rate, as you assert AT&T should be to have "2010 pricing". If you can't (and I know you can't), then your "modern times pricing" is just in your head and has no relationship to reality.
If such a small % of users are downloading so much data, the effect on the network should be minimal. It's not the amount you download that counts- it's the rate at which you download. And since *that* is essentially capped by available spectrum, the whole tier-based system is one giant deception.
