What will happen to us if they do that? How much would an app like Pandora radio cost? Probably a lot and I love Pandora it makes me get about 4 GB data a month and thats just using on weekends at night while I enjoy some beer and smokes out in the garage.

I'd have the same opinion if it was Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc. It just happens to be AT&T, so I just happen to be stating my opinion on it. And, my opinion is that this is a stupid idea.

I did try to avoid using the "R" word. And understand people getting upset over it.

Well, what you have is a large group of people here who feel anything one company does is pure evil, and ignore others. The truth is, they're all greedy bastards, just some are far better at managing their corporations. And this pro-loser mentality comes up with some real odd schemes at calling one company spectrum hoarders while ignore the fact the some were just to cheap to bid, or doing the exact same things themselves. And then, want the government to give them "special treatment" so they don't have to bid at the same rate. Basically welfare for corporations.
