Sorry, It’s Time to Start Counting Gigabytes at Home, Too

This is not the free market at work; do not believe the lies of the telecommunications industry. These “usage fees” are a way to extract more money from their territorial monopolies by either taxing “heavy usage” (a dubious term at best) or by pressuring a return to “traditional” cable subscriptions–and do not get reinvested into infrastructure improvements.

Only until the United States gets real, meaningful competition in the telecommunications market, will we continue to be subject to more and more of these intolerable acts and will have to impose more and more regulation to protect ourselves from shameless racketeering.

Your home Internet will soon work a lot more like your phone’s data plan, if it doesn’t already.
