    They are just going to just force people to let their contract expire and then move on to Verizon. I don’t know when AT&T will learn to make their service actually worth paying for. These days people want to spend their money on service they can trust and that’s fast.

    That’s the problem. Verizon is now capped and throttling those that aren’t too. Sprint I’d the only option at this point, and even Dan Hesse had said it won’t last forever…
