Re: Hackers killing off a nice feature - surprised??
Charging by how much data you use makes no sense. If they actually charged by data used then internet would cost pennies a month. What they do is charge you a usage fee that is 1000s of times more than what your usage actually costs. Because the way the costs are, internet should always be a per connection fee not a usage fee. It should always be unlimited. -- ...brought to you by Carl's Jr.
Although it makes no sense it is a for profit company so at the end of the day they should be allowed to charge you what ever they see fit. We are not forced to purchase any products (unlike healthcare) so let people speak with their wallets.
Broadband ISPs have been built off government subsidies. In most places they are a monopoly or at most a duopoly. The actively block competition into their market. They dont get a right to take advantage and charge whatever they want. -- ...brought to you by Carl's Jr.
