.. Ok ok... let's assume we can trust Wikipedia this time. there are about 300 Millions people in the US and as we know it Verizon don't cover all 50 US States. Not just that, in every states, there are other competitors in this Wireless Market. Granted tho Verizon had a tremendous lead due to our mouth to mouth advertising (Shamo said this too during this Unlimited debacle article and not till recently tho where I keep on seeing Verizon ads on air thousands of times unlike before.... To me, this is a sign of trouble (Customers distrust aka Dominos Pizza
)) Recently they are also selling some of their spectrums too... Needing Cash perhaps? Rome Fell... Wall of Jericho fell... Goliath fell.... Never learned from history? This "800 pound gorilla" will soon follow suit. I feel that Verizon want to skim its network out and get rid of old users (erm erm
) Data plan is nothing to them if you compare to old users that are paying their minutes/month
. If you don't know what I mean.. let's move on
. Granted that Verizon are covering vast amount of states... but data wise? This will be an equal battlefield. Smart CEOs will invest and better the company, hence will cause more trouble to Verizon's future. As we know it, 4G hasn't been great due to "adding new/optimizing towers here and there". Ok, they have created these new amortization assets right? How can they recover their investments without its data users? Now, back to this 100 Millions figure. Verizon have 5 customers but 1 PAYING Customer from me. I am still talking about 1 household, then how about business owners? I know am not alone for having 5 phones? I also not going to quit on Verizon when I still have Unlimited data... that just plain nuts!!!
. Pretty obvious one would leave when it's over and reach that point of no return right? Hence, Verizon try to hold off a massacre by saying no more subsidized phone for us instead of kicking us out of unlimited. If Verizon's Unlimited era is over in the near future, then let's do the math of having to pay $30 for 2GB with their "double the data gimmick" then $10/GB compared to T-Mobile's $30 5GB w/ rest throttled? Pretty easy choice for me. All 5 be non-data phones on Verizons with 2 Data phones from T-Mobile is a winning solution to me
We are hapless in keeping Unlimited data everywhere due to limiting movements of Copyrighted materials anyways.... sad but true.
