"Verizon is so confident in the strenght of it's LTE network"

If Verizon is so confident in the strengh of their LTE network then why don't they allow more than a useless 10gb/mo?!!?

Speed is for video, video is data intensive, Verizon's 10gb cap renders the speed of LTE useless because 10gb's isn't enough.

So Verizon's measly 10gb cap to me shows lack of confidence that their LTE network can't be used what speed is for.

Show some confidence Verizon and allow 30-320gb/mo.

I'm certainly not confident in Verizon's network. Their advertisements are more like fairy tales than reality.

Its because they want money too.

I think it was CNN Money, or USA Today, I don't remember. Anyways, the article was about wireless companies investing billions in 4G. The article asked, who will pay for the new 4G technology? The answer: consumers.

Wireless companies are not investing all of this money in 4G for nothing. They are doing it to attract more business and to make more money. They are investing in 4G hoping to make huge profits, given that consumers want data-centric smart phones.

Wireless companies exist to make a profit.

"Verizon is so confident about the [ability] of its LTE network" to generate tons of cash that they're encouraging developers to create high-bandwidth apps....

Well, with tiered access it makes perfect sense. The better the apps are, and the more bandwidth those apps use, the more bandwidth is in demand, the more customers will pay for a big enough data allowance to actually use the apps. Higher bills means more profit.
Verizon is rushing adoption of a resource in order to create scarcity, pushing the demand curve to the right. More demand at a higher price.
