Re: Pricing I didn't say anything about 1.2 cents being expensive, however 20 cents is highway robbery. Hell, I'd pay that much and wouldn't complain one bit. Neither did I say anything about demanding government regulation. I do think it's needed.
The irony is that it's ok for carriers to lobby all kind of nonsense, but it's not ok when one of the lowly peons suggests anything reasonable. That was what I was trying to highlight.

These guys still do not get why they lost the election. The American people are waking up and are tired of the nonsense. Where regulation is bad bad bad, unless it comes to private carrier preventing muni FTTH or competition.
Their dogma is no different to organized crime and grease payments. It's like a gang charging you a fee to walk down a street. His rationale is that well, there are other streets. The sad thing is that they don't even grasp what's wrong with this scenario.
