It seems that carriers and cable companies are losing their unlimited plans.
For the longest time we have been able to enjoy our unlimited wifi and data cellualr plans. It looks like that will be coming to an end. Verizon, as well as many other wireless companies and most of the cable companies who are providing bandwidth to get on the internet are finding it harder and harder to charge what they are charging for plans that let their customers have free reign over their bandwidth.
This is obviously something that will not be sustainable over the course of the next few years. It seems that many companies are now providing wifi as a service to their customers and with all the new wireless tablets, mp3 players and netbooks out there, the bandwidth available is starting to shrink.
What do we do? There is not a whole lot we can do. We have to find the carriers with the best plans for our money just like we do with anything else. We might be able to find other carriers that will continue their unlimited data plans, but who knows how the service will be compared to the one we are used to dealing with.
