Corporations are consumers too... Remember Romney said "corporations are people too", hehehe... But like the 1%, they only think about their own profits. As i'm preparing to leave Germany, it's true that the folks here don't know much about 4th Generation Data Service... It's just now being rollout more widely around Deutschland. But then again, it could be that the people don't mind waiting 1.002 seconds for the display to finish.

There's no heated competition here if you live in the United States. Only one carrier is trying to push the boundaries and that's T-Mobile. The rest don't care and the duopoly by AT&T and Verizon Wireless continue, neither being competitive with each other in prices to drive down costs for their subscribers.
