    Right. Its not like we'll always keep the unlimited 4G after the 2 years of unlimited, but who knows, maybe two years from now Verizon will decided that unlimited 4G IS the direction they want to go (hell maybe, 5G will be looming by then with the way tech goes)

    There are actual physical limits to capacity, since retaining rights to put up towers is fairly tough - there's physical limits almost regardless of cost so not always a question of just putting up another tower.

    Now there is supposedly some new tech coming that is like the size of a subwoofer and can basically be hidden or blended in with the architecture. Then we might finally have truly unlimited LTE for ISP replacement and the like. However, since that will kill the broadband providers and they ultimately supply the pipes, expect to pay an additional $50 for such service. Even then, broadband are starting to limit people (they always kind of have, but 250gigs was far more than anyone would use, at least before Netflix and torrents, but some are now scaling that limit back to 150gigs).
