It’s past time to reclassify data service

Category: Technology Author:

An article from the Wall Street Journal reconfirms what most people already know – the data plans offered by US carriers are completely out of touch with modern usage and are becoming comically inadequate. At what point will it become clear to these companies that data, like water or electricity service, is a utility and must be billed accordingly for any further progress in the industry?

If it wasn’t already clear, the incoming adoption of LTE should (one hopes) make it abundantly obvious to everybody that overly restrictive metering is going to have to go for the full potential of these technologies to be realised.
