No doubt 3G should become a cheap commodity once 4G is in widespread use, but thats not how bandwidth services work or get regulated.
When other companies were offering T1 dsl speeds AOL still charged users the same $25 access fees for dial up, because they could. Undoubtedly this is a reason which led to their downfall, but i digress.
Cell phone service, being a commodity like internet access and having practically no regulation, is not subject to what you or me or the guy next door wants. We pay the big companies what they want for our service, when new stuff comes out it gets adopted (eventually), and whether they say its going to cost them, or us, or nobody any more or less, there is nothing we can do about it.
You dont like the prices? Go to some other carrier. You do in fact get what you pay for, and big V has shown me great customer service and area coverage since i signed on mid-december.
