AT&T May Charge App Makers for Consumer Data Use
please enlighten me
seriously, can someone explain to me, HOW IS CHARGING THE DEVELOPER FOR NETWORK DATA CONSUMED BY CUST going to convince more users to sign-up for their service?
when your'e going to start charging app makers, the end-result is they might pass the charge to the consumers who use these apps.. so this might result in free apps getting chargers.AND might limit the signing-up too.

The solution to the data crunch is patently obvious and well-developed: WiFi offloading.
If cellular data traffic was consumed only by people who were actually moving and incapable of holding a WiFi connection- there would be no spectrum crunch.
Spending a little bit of their massive profits on building out and improving their network is another way.......just saying. I know I'm in the AT&T Board of Directors meeting here so the idea of spending any money on their network sounds terrible, but just an idea.
Hey, I'm a Verizon customer, not an ATT board member.
I also have a degree in Electrical Engineering with an emphasis on communication systems, so I can confidently say that while "investing in the network" would increase service quality, it CAN NOT address the cost of providing cellular service.
I'll try to make the explanation as simple as I can. Cell towers run on electricity. They transform that electric power into commu...
