Scott Campbell, United States4 years ago Comments: I was told this is done because 95% of users dont go over 2 gigs. What does that matter and then why is it a problem? The other reason i hear is cause some people abuse it. How can you say that its abused and still be called unlimited. If your network cant keep up then maybe its a problem you should fix and not force it on your costumers. When i signed up i had the option to upgrade later to see how much data i use first. I have been with Verizon for a long time and my bill gets more and more expensive and don't understand why i am not a valued costumer. I upgrade every-time and sign a new contract with you Verizon. I don't know how loyal i can be in the future?? If i had the option and felt safe signing the contract because i could change it later. Then you change your options in the middle of my contract?? Every costumer has the right to change plans and i look at what else is available in case i do want or need to. I should be entitled to the same choices i had when i signed up or ' Sounds like your in a breach of contract somehow?!! There's streaming video, pictures, internet, music, podcast, and ADVERTISEMENTS. I record music and send and receive attachments through email. I use the phone for business. I'm going over 2GB/mo with all these.
Julien Demassey, United States4 years ago Comments: It's called an oligopoly. And it should be completely illegal for the same reasons that monopolies are. It's just a little harder to prove the existence of an oligopoly due to the nature of proviing that it is a concerted effort or conspiracy. See Oligopoly (from dictionary.com): ol·i·gop·o·ly [ol-i-gop-uh-lee] –noun the market condition that exists when there are few sellers, as a result of which they can greatly influence price and other market factors. In this case, we have a limited number of choices in phone companies, namely AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile (hopefully the merger will be blocked), and Sprint. Since they haven't ALL gone tiered yet (at least not at the same time), it is unlikely that it can be considered one, although it may feel like one for some. Not until they all go the way of tiered. Then hopefully capitalism will foster some entreprenuer who starts a company with unlimited data to take in all the alienated customers from the tyranny of the big companies controlling the market!
