Let's get faster interwebs with ridiculous bandwidth caps. I'll stay with 3G thanks.

Don't forget your complementary addition of more pixels on the screen, faster processors, more memory but never an increase in good old battery life.

What's the point if data caps don't raise concurrently with the transfer rates. That's akin to diving a Ferrari with cheap tires, or dining at an all you can eat buffet... for all of thirty minutes.

Bandwidth speed isn't the problem, it's how much of it we have access to. 6gb a month is no longer feasible for a single mobile, it just isn't enough anymore, not with applications becoming more & more data intensive.

6gb a month on your mobile!!???

How is that not feasible? In fact how are u using more than's a phone?!!?

...Also neither of your analogies work 😜

you are so clueless

^^ Obviously!

The only possible reason you could even get marginally even close to that figure is if your downloading games & streaming HD content (even still both of these are compressed).

Why would you ever possibly want or need to do either of those things on a mobile phone. Surely you have tv's & PC/consoles where you're from? I'm never further than 2 foot away from all of these things even under this rock.

I get by with my 6 gig plan just fine.
I've almost gone over once, back when i had to stay at a internet-less motel for a week.

But 6 gig plans simply dont exist anymore. Or if they do, they're comedically overpriced (at least in Canada).

The standard is 1 or 2 gig plans and honestly that just would not be enough for me. :x

I only see Sprint being the feasible enough company to pull this off with the amount of bandwidth they own.

I'm waiting till my cheap android phone dies or the Phonebloks/Project Ara are released(if the prices are acceptable for the basic phones and the optional parts).

Our country is only JUST phasing into 4G.
