A Disgusting Oversimplification. ..

Highly disappointed in you Rich for this "editorial" piece that patronizes to the lowest common denominator.

What bothers me is people will read this and actually feel "informed".

Its easy to bash the top 4 carriers as they assume most of the risk and trailblaze into the future with cutting edge innovation that can only come with the resources of deep pockets. Cellular service is not a charity, networks don't build and and maintain themselves. (Unless you're an MVNO)

You said yourself, without a subsidy this would deter many people from getting newer technology and stiffen innovation.

If the purpose of this editorial was to get carriers to offer a no contract or bring your own phone differetial in pricing, that's a whole lot of not going to happen. If the purpose of this piece was to raise web traffic on a slow day? Then I am ashamed of you and disappointed in myself for having taken the bait.

Good day
