Reasonable profit and greed are a bit different, no?

Who decides "reasonable"

One man's greed is another stockholder's profit.

How and who defines which is which and where the line between the two crosses?

I expect that companies represented in "your" pension portfolio make reasonable profit, and any other companies are greedy... :o

Eyes of the beholder, I guess. I'm not defining, just saying there's a dictionary difference. Sorry if I offended anyone, didn't mean to.

It's simple:     What the market will bear. Buy it or don't.. that way you can support or protest. That will eventually square the problem away. Guess what, I am a free market kind of guy.

Interesting concept.  Pay more if you use more.

They are the one's who said it was unlimited.  The problem is, now they don't like the deal THEY made, and want to re-negotiate it.  In my opinion, they made their bed, and now they should sleep in it.

It still is unlimited.  You won't be cut off, just slowed down only when there is excess congestion.  Once the congestion is relieved, your speed goes back up.

My guess is that Verizon will end ALL unlimited data plans when each person's unlimited plan ends.

Sprint will be capping their unlimited hotspot plans on Oct. 2, according to this article and others I just read.

Hasn't that been what's been happening all along? It happened to everyone at FMCA-Madison, at QZ, at the Gillette Escapade. Hmmmm, does VZ discriminate against RVers?

Perhaps VZW should have slowed all of you down :)

I said  money, not greed. I am not sure how you can differentiate one from the other. The purpose of a business is to make money. The only thing I am accusing Verizon of is that they are being disingenuous when they make the claim about trying to manage their network. What they are really doing is trying to maximize their profits. This is just another redefinition of 'unlimited'. Just like airlines decided that they need to charge a fee for everything they do, phone companies found another way to charge you more for the same thing they deliver (and they can argue that they are doing it for their customers' benefit).

Cool, huh?
