Yes, but that's exactly what the broadband and GSM US market needs. This is an encroached bunch of crooks with sleezy marketing practices and a captive market. The prices are artificially high, there is little to no competition (except for recent Tmo moves in feb that have resulted in an across the board slash in prices at all operators). The fact that Free is not "so good anymore" because others have matched is exactly what is exciting. I am actually happy with ATT wireless, technically, but not about the price of the service, and the fact that a $75 bill becomes a $100 bill with bogus "tax recovery" BS minilines and overarges for pretty much looking wrong at the phone.

20 euros is inclusive of taxes. France taxes are not super heavy, but still on the upper side, and I'd bet US taxes are lower overall.

When I lived in France I had Free. Excellent service, very disruptive market strategy. I'm very excited with the news. I'd switch in an eyelash.

You do not know what you are talking about, and you are wrong. The forms are checked, and very often acceptance is conditional to an increase in salary. The administration do check the numbers and is not shy of bumping the salary requirement to match prevailing wages.

You have a tendency to feel you are superior to most computers.
