FCC Officially Launching Inquiry Into Wireless Competition
At today's meeting, the Federal Communications Commission decided to launch a formal inquiry into the wireless industry, its business practices, and how the large wireless network operators affect consumer choice. The FCC will specifically be looking at AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless. The FCC had previously taken initial steps to see if further investigation was warranted. The FCC has yet to provide details on exactly what it will be investigating. The wireless industry has staunchly defended its practices, pointing out that consumers have a wide range of choices of network operators, handsets, and service plans.
IMHO the US wireless industry..
One has to ask why in the past two years has the price of a text message gone from $0.10 to $0.15 up to $0.20 per message if you don't have a text message plan. Sure you can buy a text message bundle plan, but why should a user do so if they are already paying so much for their voice plan and data plan?
Just some food for thought.
You don't get free gas just because you bought the car.
