Like Gym Membership

Gyms oversell their memberships, expecting more people will sign up than actually use the network. For awhile, this is how cellular data was engineered. Nobody with a Pocket PC used much data because the process was so miserable.

However, since the iPhone, data actually became relevant. AT&T got hit hard with heavy data usage. To some extent, it is necessary.

But they've had 5 years to prepare for this. I cut them a break in '09 because of the massive growth surge, but now that Verizon Wireless has the iPhone, they're out of excuses. AT&T's network is overloaded because they didn't invest properly in it.
