WIth the exception of income tax, the federal goverment cannot force anyone to charge customers something. It's in the Constitution.

The State, who can obligate companies to charge their customers, obligate them to charge taxes. Surcharges are not taxes directly from the state; if they were, they'd be taxes.

Cell phone companies have caps in their service for two reasons:

1. Mo' money.

2. In order to protect their network.

They don't do so because the government says so. The limits some place on services are explained as such, and such they are; if the companies could use the Big Bad Government as an excuse, they'd use it in a heartbeat.

As a Sprint rep, I know that we do not in any way cap internet that we claim is unlimited. Same goes for phone calls, as long as they're on our network. T-Mobile equally does not throttle their unlimited users.
