And the problem with providing service that's better than the competition in an area that's underserved is...?
You missed the point, which is, they chose areas where they can do the most price gouging with the least amount of push-back. And there will be little push-back because rural areas are desperate. Desperate for anything, even if the price is obscene.
Like I said, in the desert you can charge any price for water.
He didn't miss the point at all... you did.
You're entire premise as to why is completely wrong.. and rather just whining. If this service had been deployed in an affluent area they'd be charged with cherry-picking.
The service is designed for rural areas with little options. I'm sorry their rationality on this doesn't suit your personal agenda. You need to get real.
This argument you make reminds me of accountants.. they master the art of taking any thing and making it be what you want.. just like this argument.
