Yes there are a few preliminary requirements but they are all pretty common.
First off you must have been with Verizon for a few years, great customer loyalty you have got there Verizon...
Secondly you have to have used over 5 gigabytes that month. That is something you can do in about 5 hours, anyone who has even heard of throttling used that or many times that per week...
The last one I know nothing about, but apparently Verizon has enough trouble with infrastructure that they are deploying throttling schemes to get around upgrading their stuff so being connected to one under heavy demand must happen often enough.

Yes, and stock price is not cemented to profits.... Stock climbs as the influence of the company climbs. FB is a famous company that never made any profits, or even showed any ability to ever produce profits, that still had a tremendously good stock evolution. Or you could just look at Amazon's Stock Price, to see that it has been climbing and climbing and climbing, making their investors money (over the last 4 years alone it has gone up to 5 times its starting value).

That is not a loss, that is breaking even.

Yes, between the profits that they could be making, and them breaking even, they are "losing" money in some senses. But in terms of real world "losses" , they are not swelling or piling up, they are just spending their money as fast as it is coming in; And at the end of the year breaking even (within a percentage of a 1 percent).

APL hackers do it in the quad.
