No they don't. If you live without food and water, you die.

Same with electricity/gas if you live somewhere too hot or cold.

The argument has come full circle a bit and started to repeat itself. I think it's been agreed on that it's not necessary for survival. I think at some point, you have to agree with Duckie that rapid cost increases across all providers would have a clear negative effect on technological/economic progression (and also as a result contribute heavily to inflation). I'm just not sure it's quite to that point.

I've been with VZW for 7 years now and dont ever plan on switching. Sure, I pay more then I would with other companies, but you really do get what you pay for. Where I live, VZW has the absolute best service and no other company can come close. Most people I know (and several local businesses) have dropped at&t and other providers for Verizon.

For a while sprint and nextel were king, but only because of the convience of "direct connect", their service was actually the worse and still is now. After the direct connect fad died and everyone started texting (and I mean everyone, even my 75 year old grandfather) most here switched to the better service of Verizon, and all are perfectly fine with paying more money for it

There is a curve to "cheaper". First it cost billions and billions of dollars, then it becomes cheaper. But the big reason verizon cost more, phone subsidies. They have to make up that 300 dollars discount some how.

Isn't the bandwidth capped being reached? Or was that a myth lol. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuqmKg6QQTw

I'm not sure if wireless can keep up with demands in cities though especially with the current state of the spectrum licensing.

If landline ISPs choose to let their last-mile connections rot then I'm sure this will take its place.

I dunno, I've seen many a African tribesman going quite some time without food and water. tongue.gif

And for most of human history we lived without electricity or gas, why are they a must now!?

My point is, we're reaching a point where having quick access to internet, regardless of how is becoming a must. *In modern society obviously*

That's largely true, except that games do NOT take up much bandwidth to play.

People forget that electricity is only I think it was about 160 years old (when it was being harnessed as power)? It's not some sort of ancient technology.
