When you say AT&T resellers, what do you mean? Are they ISPs using AT&Ts lines? If so, that still gets you around the bandwidth caps.
Sonic is expensive? I beg to differ.
How about making it so I don't have re-download 3+GB every time a minor dot-release of Xcode is released?

Well, if you think about it. You were pretty unlikely to spend *anything* on those songs again. So now they get $25 out of you that they otherwise were unlikely to get. Not a bad deal.
I know that moderators have a soft spot for cynical comments, but I disagree. I think there IS competition in the US mobile market. This merger, however, will be another big blow to it, as T-Mobile has recently been an innovator in the space. T-Mobile brought European-style contract-free plans to the US, encouraging the use of unlocked phones. It also was the most vocal and earliest adopter of Android.
What the US mobile competition has shown me over the years is that consumers are not solely concerned with price. If they were: Sprint, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, etc would dominate the market. Instead, what's happened is the carriers instead compete on exclusive rights to the shiniest new phones, and consumers are willing to pay a premium to get their hands on them. So if you want to blame anyone for the lack of price competition with AT&T and Verizon, blame the consumers. The competition is alive; carriers have just found something to make consumers care about other than price.
Just to make sure you understood: T-Mobile is the opposite, the contract-free plan costs less.

Just get a SIP provider and Android will use it as if it's a cell network, I assume. I'm not sure how the quality will be over a mobile network, but I'd be curious to hear how it works out for you.
I don't think they've done it yet, but FreeBSD is supposedly planning to get rid of a.out support, which would end that
What's funny is on Android people would be questioning in the comments why a flashlight app needs network permissions
I don't think I'd care if they did announce a curated market as long as it wasn't the only way to obtain apps.
Possibly all of them depending on how much competition existed. I wouldn't mind an absence of net neutrality if there was a thriving competitive marketplace for ISPs.
