Verizon LTE Blows Through Monthly Data Cap in 32 Minutes
DVD is "local only" for now. Will send select PMs when distributed more widely.
Will post on rare occasions...
But Eisenhower’s least heeded warning — concerning the spiritual effects of permanent preparations for war — is more important now than ever.

all verizon is going to do is push its heavy users to other carriers.

Yeah, the cost of the service and cap size just doesn't seem to add up. Why would I want to pay 50 dollars a month for 5gigs of data? That seems like a lot of money for a service that I am going to have to use wisely. Between steaming shows, streaming music, browsing the web, and downloading things, I could see that being a huge issue fast.

its simply not a home internet solution, nor should it be an option for media heavy users. Verizon LTE is a good option for casual business types/road warriors, I suppose. The overage fee of 10 a gig isn't terrible, though. Again, just not something you want to even think about streaming videos, music, on demand movies or shows, etc. ... which all sort of negates the advantage of speed in the first place.

If they are going to institue a cap in LTE coverage areas they should be REQUIRED to over land line service. I am finding myself looking to move back into an area where wireless is the ONLY option. There are phone lines out there but verizon and previusly GTE REFUSES to make the changes needed to allow DSL or fios.
Our local board of supervisors was looking to put into regulations requirements to change this. However, it hasnt happened as of yet.
