Re: Bottom line

An MVNO can't exactly tailor to highly abusive users.

How do you abuse unlimited?

The MVNO has to pay per byte. In the US, we massively overpay for our cell phones just to have huge buckets of minutes and "unlimited" stuff, when we'd be much better off if we paid for what we actually used, but at a reasonable rate, like what Ting is doing.

I'm just going to assume your replying to someone else as it has nothing to do with my question.

Frankly its a really slimy thing to do, sell people unlimited then call them abusers for using it.

My point is Ting doesn't offer unlimited, and can't at a reasonable price, because they have to pay on a per byte basis to Sprint. Nothing is truly unlimited, even the local buffet.

Yes we know they don't offer unlimited.

Many do.

Sprint's own.
