Just curious...If VZW is doing away with unlimited data for 3G, what would be there pricing tier be.

When it comes to VZW and math, it has already been established that they and I expect they couldn't convert bits and bytes.
So my point is it's pretty easy if they're measuring in bits and it's doable within the TOS (last version I looked at) if they're measuring in bytes, albeit with 8+ hours a day streaming higher quality videos. Last nights post was under the assumption of getting screwed and being measured in bits, which I should have noted in the post.
Fact is that the cellular telephone industry is having to deal with an exponentially expanding customer base with limited available bandwidth.
Add in the streaming video crowd and now the "top 5%" start lagging an already taxed network.
Like it or not, the bottom line is that Verizon, AT&T, etc. are in business to make money for their shareholders, not give away potential revenue streams. And by limiting the bandwidth with tiered plans, they take some of the "streamers" out of the equation and the network performance for the rest of us improves. Pretty elegant solution, actually.
And the $3 wireless providers pay for user, I think to the hardline carriers, is also misleading. They spend BILLIONS on wireless infrastructure investment and maintenance that takes years to recover and generate an ROI.
