Gotta love how one minute these companies are heavily advertising something, and the next minute they change their mind.
Sounds like America needs far less consolidation and far more competition. This corporate communism bullshit is getting really old and isn’t working for us at all.
Well, it could just be that there’s not enough bandwidth in the airwaves for everyone to drop their DSL and run their whole house off of a smartphone connection. How else are they going to deal with it?
Sprint has every reason to not charge based on usage – they’re the underdog, and that was one of the very few things that they could have used to bring people over to their service. So I would presume they’re doing this because they absolutely have to.
Alas, albtrssp, that is not the case.
That link is about cable.
Bait and switch! They never changed their mind – it was part of the plan!
This is par for the course for Sprint. As a former employee (left about the time as the Nextel merger) they would make radical changes all of the time concerning internal policies, commission structure, etc. Playing it off with the cliche “The only constant is change” BS
