Hey AT&T, here's an idea, instead of wasting money to implement a throttling system, you could use that money to UPGRADE YOUR INFRASTRUCTURE TO MEET THE DEMAND...
AT&T is a corporation. One that has no corporate culture so its only motivation is cash. Pissing off 5% of their users to save hundreds of millions in upgrade costs makes perfect sense to them. Yes, it is a very short sighted business decision, since infrastructure upgrades are NOT PnP and a competitor could get YEARS of advantages by starting early but AT&T is counting on a few things:
- They have virtually no competition
- The competition that the DO have is just as greedy as they are. If their competition has a speed advantage over them, they'll just charge a premium.
- Many of these companies act in collusion.
