Re: Unfortunately.... as consumers find ways to save money...

Wait till they start charging you for data traffic that goes over your own Wi-Fi connection.

Who wants to take the bet.... Charges coming for using your phone over your own Wi-Fi. This is additional and on top of the data charges from your ISP for using data (your Wi-Fi).

Already doing it...femtocells

As for finding other revenue generating means, that won't change. I can't think if any business that willingly reduces revenue.

thankfully my provider (T-Mobile) gave me a free addon which gives me unlimited free calls over any wifi signal. Works great!

Finding revenue sources to me equates to finding new products and services consumers are willing to pay for. Not finding new "creative" ways to charge more and take more while providing less and doing less, just because they can.

Yeah, they recently pushed out Wi-Fi calling to many phones via updates.

I used to be interested in Femtocells but they've been largely obsoleted now by Wi-Fi. I don't need one at all because I can use my phone and other devices via Wi-Fi and make voice calls via Wi-Fi as well, so there's no longer a need for a Femtocell.

It wasn't because they decided to be nice. They get to take load off their network, and put it elsewhere; your ISP's, and your net cap if you have one.

T-Mobile already does this if you are using prepaid
