Re: I don't use 2gb.
said by whiteshp:We're talking about cellular internet here. It's a luxury, plain and simple. People can and do live without it. Don't whine to me because you feel it's overpriced while you continue to send Verizon/AT&T/whomever a check each month.
Internet is a utility. For many of us it is how we work, shop, and keep in contact with our families.
said by whiteshp:Where is DSL being "shut down"? Some telcos have halted expansion deeper into rural areas but I'm not aware of shrinking DSL footprints. Even if they are "shutting down" DSL, you've got the choice to move to civilization. Living in the middle of nowhere comes at a premium. Are you also going to bellyache about the increased cost of maintaining a septic tank/well vs. having municipal water/sewer service?
With the shutting down of DSL in many places there is no more choice but just wireless and they know it.
