Re: Greed!!!

Point one is invalid.

If the economy was bad we would see more people flock towards post-paid plans because the cost of paying a phone up front is too steep for those who have cash in the bank.

Point 2 is valid but not quite.

Yes CEO and executives are greedy bastards morally. They own the network and can charge as much as they see fit, so they are not greedy bastards economically. So therefore we are upset morally but in the real world all that matters is gains and losses and so it's business as usual and hence therefore we cannot be mad because it's capitalism....without morals.

capitalism only works in a free market. The cellphone market is not open.

Then what would you call what we have now? Also define open.

It is open. You are free to call Sprint Wholesale and purchase access to their network as an MVNO and resell plans just like everyone else. PagePlus Cellular has been doing it for over 10years on CellCO's network.

In terms of spectrum assets yes and you can thank the FCC for that but there are still other competitors out there, you can only have so many national carriers until you run out of space and to be more precise good spectrum.

I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with that, but competition is limited, so free market principals do not operate 100% with the absence of regulation in cell phone markets of the united states.
