Well here is the issue. When you allow tiered access to data then it means you will submit when they start carving more and more into those plans.

The idea of choice does not make it better. Hell do you even realize how much data even costs a carrier? Verizon calls data plans "free money" which means its a product with no cost. Same as text messaging.. You pay 20.00 for unlimited text messaging and it literally cost the carrier NOTHING to provide the service.

You talk to me about choice but what you cite is a product with no value. Anyone remember the Vcast Vpak? Unlimited data on your phone from VzW for 15 a month... Now for 10 bucks Verizon offers you 75mbs a month. Look at the shrinkage there... Look how they just gauged the customers and how willingly the customers ate it.

Yeah, corporations do need regulation because the "let the market judge us" has never existed.
