Re: Boo Effin Hoo..

Verizon Wireless has 115 million subscribers. Even if they collected $40 a month from each of those subscribers excluding taxes, they would still bring in $4.6 billion a month. I don't think it costs $4.6 billion a month to run their network. Sure there's energy costs for each cell site, which is most likely eaten up by the 24/7 AC units they have running to keep their gear cool. They could incorporate solar energy to supplement some of the power requirements...

I'm sure you realize the math isn't that simple.

Solar still costs more than it's worth. So a business could spend more on solar than the return it would realize and spend more on serving less than profitable markets? Sounds like a great strategy for any business funded by the Feds
