Re: "breath in all that Wall Street greed Kids"

You have to give the average consumer all the clout you can since we are the ones that drive or sink a stock one way or another.

But that's my point. We don't have that much power in markets like mobile services.

Even a little power can topple any stock as long as the consumer goes the other way

Keep dreaming. As a consumer, you will not affect a company's market cap.

That occurred because of management's continued failure to have vision and/or effectively execute on it. Failing to compete in a competitive market and losing customers is not the same as raising rates for customers in a relatively non-competitive environment. I'll grant you that if you can corral a meaningful number of consumers and convince them all to cancel service, the collective can affect the bottom line, but you as an individual consumer will not even be a blip on the company's screen.
