Hopefully at some point technology will make the airwaves the fattest pipe around, as data speed through the ether at multi-gig speeds. Then maybe we will see wireless data become commoditized and prices fall through the floor the way they are doing in the b2b wireline data sector. Hopefully....
Do you think it cost these companies $10 per GB to deliver data NOW? If they actually charged what data was, heck charge DOUBLE actual cost, prices would be much lower.
With Verizon's new Share Your Wallet plan 1 GB cost $50, 10 GB cost $100. Somehow it costs Verizon $50 to deliver 1 GB but then another $50 to deliver 9 more GB? Does not compute. And we all know it doesn't cost Verizon anywhere near $100 to deliver 10 GB of data. If you need more than 10 GB you can purchase 2 extra GB for $10. So that's 5 per GB. And you know they are making mad profits on that. So if they are making huge profits at $5 per GB then 10 GB should be no more than $50 not $100.
