Verizon's 'Share Everything' Plans Arrive June 28
So, what is the game changer here, DATA
The availibility and the bottom line cost.
I am sure VZW is poised to position this as, "you really don't need as much data as you think you might if you utilize you home WiFi netowrk and publicly available hot spots".
I am not one to try to "power a households needs off my smartphone" but I use things like navigation, streaming internet radio, and streaming video on top of reading news and pulling emails while completely out of reach of my home network and where publicly available WiFi is not available or is not practical due to ridiculously slow speeds.
As consumers we buy these high end phones, commit to a contract and pay for services at a premium to support the functionality of these devices and now VZW and AT&T are crying fowl just because the profit margin isn't as big as they wanted it to be or it has been THEN they blame it on the consumer for buying the phone and using it the way the salesperson and the manufacturer advertised it could be used and Tmo is not even giving you the option of paying an overage fee, you hit 2 GB and you're knocked back to 1x speeds essentially making your smartphone useless until your next bill cycle starts up again.
No carrier is perfect. It's all based on location. What carrier has the best coverage that you are willing to pay for.
Sprint has UNLIMITED data and where I live my speeds are good no issue no complaints.
These new billing practices seem anti-consumer if not just down right predatory for people that aren't in the know.
