White House Petition for Unlimited Data
Spread this petition like wild fire!
Post it on other tech websites!
LTE & LTE-Advanced with carrier aggregation is capable of handling lots, and lots of traffic without speeds suffering.
Why in the world would we want the White House involved in how the Wireless industry does business (any more than it already is?)
But selling anything on an "unlimited" basis kind of requires the background knowledge that the "middle 99%" of your customers consume about the same amount of product (maybe a 5x or 10x difference).
This is why Chinese Restaurants can get away with buffet pricing. Almost everyone who comes in will eat 2 or 3 plates full. Some will eat only one, but nobody will eat 15 plates of food during a single meal, so the manager can count on the law of averages to make things work out at the end of the month.

If you want Verizon's service, you have to play Verizon's game. In our culture, the carriers make the rules, and the consumers decide if they want to play ball or not. That isn't likely to change until monop...
The very concept of "unlimited" is a pipe dream, a childish notion. As such, anyone who believes that everyone should get as much of anything they want, totally unlimited & at the price they themselves think they should pay for it, is allowing their emotions to prevail over logic, reason and common sense.
That petition provides absolutely no facts, it is strictly someone's fervent opinions, with no supporting evidence to back up its strident claims.
