Dish is starting a lte cell network..as competition as well...should be good. Dish says low payments...unlimited data...of course its gonna take a few years to get it built!!!
as for their costs going down, and price going up. Yup. They took my free nighttime/weekend minutes that I got when I signed up (and I never renewed so they couldn't take my data, and I assumed that promotion as well). T-Mobile's $70 monthly unlimited everything (with no data throttling) is looking mighty appealing to me now. Shame. I've been with VZW about 8 years and love their service. But their business practices are really pushing me away
So the consumer is "gouged" to pay these "ludicrous salaries" to the tune of about $0.08 per month.
Well we won't be renewing our contract with Verizon since I believe there will be more options by the time our contract expires. There are a lot of people bailing on VZW. For now I'll continue with my grandfathered unlimited data along with free nights and weekends. I think it's ridiculous the amount of money I pay them each month and, like them, I am doing what I can to cut my costs.
