Default No More Unlimited Data Plan for New Verizon iPhone Customers

"It’s finally happened, the window is closing. Verizon has killed off its unlimited iPhone data plan and has instituted tiered data caps. Here are the new plans, going into effect on Thursday. Warning: for most people, they kinda suck."

Yup, it does suck. More and more capabilities within the hardware and software, more and more limitations on bandwidth usage. Seems to me that the carriers are sending VERY mixed signals - we offer MORE, and want you to use MORE, but we will charge you through the nose for it. We're building ever larger and faster pipes to carry your data, but it ain't gonna be cheap. Reminds me of the early internet days, where my company severely restricted web access because they didn't want to slow down their precious mainframe traffic (that paid the bills). It would be interesting to see carrier capacity management numbers to see just how close they are to capacity, or are these arbitrary data caps just another long-term scheme to keep their revenue up?
