  1. It was kind of cool that he mentioned twice that he wanted to talk about the network plans before they actually go to that point. It Points to some excitement with in the company for the or plans or messaging they want the markets to hear.
  2. Phoenix itself is really good, but there are a ton of weak areas in the east valley and Glendale. But it has improved a ton too. We need more density in the area surounding phoenix.
  3. He was pretty good at being a public brand advocate for sprint. Too bad he is being cut out.

    Neither. The point isnt correct.

    They can't. They are a profit maximizing firm and demand for their produce isnt perfectly inelastic.
  6. FCC Approves Net Neutrality

    If netflix can get them to pay, yes. But they can work that out amongst themselves. The profits of the industry isnt my concern.

    We were talking about wired. But now that you mention it what companies are most responsible for wireless data being unusable if it we're truly unlimited? Netflix, YouTube? Hmmm....... Should they flip part of the bill?

    It isnt about keeping the internet open. It is about big content asking the government to tilt the profits of an industry towards them. It is package as keeping the internet open, but that is just a marketing. Low caps are the way ISP make up for not being able to charge netflex for the data they use. Caps are an effect of net neutrality not solved by it.

    So? If the could raise prices and increase profits (your claim) they would do it now. Why wait? That doesnt make sense.

    That sounds like you chose to live in an area with limited access to broadband. Fortunately the majority of Americans did not inflict that probelm on themselves. Only 2 percent of americans are in you position. 63 percent have more than two broadband wired choices.

    Why dont they raise prices now then? If They arent maximizing profits now?

    Wireless is cannibalizing low usage customers. I know plenty of people that use there wireless plan alone. Have you not seen the inovation that has taken place of the last decade on the pipe side of things? Nationalize it and that ends. What is cable was nationalized in 2000? 3mbs persecond, no wireless broadband. That is not a world I would like to live in thanks. Markets work fine.

    There is a ton of competition even in equal areas and there will be more if those companies are allowed to make it a two sides market.

    The verge is extremelely biased on this issue. You are not getting analys from them you are getting an agenda pushed. The guy that ran the verge on 2012 said that there was only one choice for him in the election because obama promised to push net neutrality. Yeah, companies may try to change the way we interact with the internet but they have failed because they need to change it in a way that adds value to the consumer and no one has figure it out. As far as charging netflix for preferred access I am fine with that and see no reason why that shouldnt be allowed. That is a dispute between huge companies about who gets what profits. Throttling bit torrent sites continues today if they think you are violating intellectual property. The internet is a dynamic place, if you make it a public utility you are going to murder that dynamism. And pricing is increasing now and regardless up net neutrality. You would have to show that the increase is caused by net neutrality going away.

    That is a mobile ISP and giving people extra data for certain apps isnt the same as making the internet in to pay cable. If you read this very deceptive article if looks like in Portugal you buy a data package and then you can add extra data for certain apps. So what? That is a good deal for people who dont use those apps much and a good deal for those that do. It makes the plans more complex but look out how it compares to the US market. If you are on a metered plan in the US you go over your data there where to models: one you pay 10-15 dollars per gig in overages or your internet slowed down to the end of the month. In Portugal you can by extra data for 5 euros for specific apps, that sounds like a better deal for wide segments of the comsumer base. The fact that the only place in the entire article it is mentioned that this is for extra data for these apps is under the graphic and it is present as if you dont have access to these apps unless you pay, shows you why you have to criticle read news articles. These things are written with agendas in mind.
