Dont see what all the fuss is about
Why should mobile firms cut the termination fees?
Free Mobile Handsets, Free LineRental, Free Cross-Network Minutes, Free Texts, Free Xbox, Free Holiday, Free Laptop, Free broadband, Free this free that when you sign up for a mobile.
Blah blah boring greedy public.
The reason im losing my job..... because the general public are total absolute misers and penny pinchers when it comes to mobile phone tariffs, yet the very same public squander thousands being too lazy to change to a significantly cheaper credit card company or downsize the tv channel bundles that you never watch etc. Borrow money, to pay interest, VAT and TAX on a depreciating car...? The mind boggles when they waste thousands but fine toothpick a mobile contract.
Nobody realises that Gordon Brown [aka professional thief] took circa 25 Billion from the mobile networks for simply a LICENCE to use the radiospectrum for 3G purposes. That was before a penny was spent on equipment to build an actual network.... they have to recoup this money somehow or has someone forgotten this?
Just how do you think mobile networks of the future are going to carry your phone calls and texts if you wont pay any money for them? If we carry on like this you will have your phone calls interrupted with advertisements and get text adverts all day long to pay for your usage.
EU meddling has already cut Roaming significantly( I agree wholeheartedly with this one because it was simply extortionate...) they have also brought down Cross-Network charges, most to a flat rate tariff, put another way, they are now included in your 'free' minutes
If you take away all the revenue streams just who is going to build the other half of the 3G networks? Who will invest in 4th generation networks for the future? Yeah laugh now about 4G... but its already on the agenda.
Dont you get enough for "free" already? No, really, you do. Its obscene.
Or would you like to pay full market price for your handset instead of the free [subsidised] one you forgot to mention?
Imagine they hadnt put broadband in all those years ago, can you see yourself using dialup now in todays environment? No, i didnt think so, just like we're going to need 3G just like when you said "how did we *ever* manage without broadband?
