And as maintenance costs & capital costs continue to increase and data usage increases, costs and prices will rise as well.
Why would maintenance costs increase? The equipment from what I understand has been getting much more reliable with an emphasis on less hands on needed.
More frequent updates and more and more towers to maintain on the maintenance side. And on the capital investment size, more towers being built to shrink coverage areas in order to handle more users and more data.--
