You forget the 3rd option: the government won't let you. The only way to protect your information is to encrypt it and the government does not want you to do that, go to the degree of saying you should not be allowed to encrypt your information since it might be involved in a criminal investigation.
"Because our network is a shared resource and we need to ensure all customers have a great mobile experience with Verizon,"
So you're saying wireless isn't as fast as wired and is like cable. Thanks for being honest Verizon. Now let's stop pushing this wireless crap down peoples throats and roll out some more fiber. Now stop preventing Google Fiber from competing and sell off you FIOS division so someone else can do it spread fiber since you won't do it.
Good luck with real world tests. What are the parameters? Stop and think about all the different driving conditions (hint: it's alot). Then run a car through all those tests. So yeah real world tests would be helpful but not easily performed for a basis of comparison.
It's a standard test that applies uniformly among car manufacturers. It's reliable. What you are asking for is information that the test does not provide. You would need a other tests that would SIMULATE different driving conditions.
Well duh, consumer reports knows this! That's why they provide feedback about the disparities between cars and their EPA stickers and point out which ones comes closest. That's one of the points of their reviews. You would know this if you paid attention.
And there's no way to change the what and how they test unless Congress changes the law. So yeah bitch about the EPA but it's Congress that's passing the laws and EPA abides by with corporate lobbyists pulling the strings of Congress.
