Seems like the average joe/jane only believes in contracts when they get ALL the benefits with no downside. Don't get me wrong, I think there needs to be some more checks and balances with the carriers, but a contract is a contract. If you don't agree to it, don't sign it. If you don't care to read and understand it (or can't understand it - find help!) that's your own damn fault! Only in the USA can we blame everyone else for our own problems.

BS! Most Grandma's don't have a clue what a GB is and I'd go further to say most don't even have internet. It is true they would pay more per bit, but overall I think they should pay less.
