Re: $5, $10, $15.. do I hear $20??

how much is a gigabyte worth?
even with gas prices tamping down like a feather.. the price of a gigabyte seems to be going up all the time..

I think $10 is a ripoff! Verizon charges $50 for 1 GB. That's 5X a ripoff.

Imagine if cable rates were like that. Let's see, if you used somewhere around where Comcast's cap was (300GB), you'd be paying $3000 per month.

wrong the $50 also includes unlimited minutes and texting. On old pricing unlimited family texting costs $30.

So go from 1 GB to 2 G is an $10. To go from 2 GB to 4 GB is $10. In fact every 2 GB after that is $10 or $5 per GB. Still high but not the $50 per GB you are implying.

Also why are even comparing to this to PHONE service when the more applicable comparison would be Verizon's HomeFusion service. It's $60 a month for $10 GB and you get 4G speeds.

Wrong. That's $40. $40 gets you unlimited talk and text, and $50 more gets you 1GB of data.
