    Yeah, when I got the new Iphone they tried to talk me into the tiered plan. I declined immediately. Guess I'm grandfathered into the old unlimited with ATT

    Maybe for mobile phones in the short term. Sprint isn't going to follow Verizon/AT&T's model and this bonehead idea might be exactly what they need to become relevant again.

    With home internet.. I doubt it because the competition is so great. Just in my neighborhood, if Time Warner Cable limits my internet, I'll switch to AT&T. If AT&T follows TWC, i'll switch to Grande Cable. If Grande lets me down... I'll get Clear since Austin is a wifi friendly place.

    I hoping that's the case, the way the industry is heading we need more internet not less. Not to mention, American internet service is slow compared to other countries. We need to catch up before we fall behind more.

    I'm in agreement with the idea of limiting my home internet. WTF to you think I pay $60+ a month for now? I'd tell earthlink to shove it up their ass if the EVER try that crap on me, and I'd migrate my two servers to someone else so fast it'd make their heads spin
