I can’t even think about getting a smart phone from Verizon without agreeing to paying $30/mo for data (maybe different now with their new weirdo plans). To me, data’s always been stupid expensive, and it hasn’t come down. Maybe it’s because I have zero need for it (I’m a dork who never leaves the house, thus never leaves my wifi), so I don’t know.
Texting costs have come way down since texting became a thing. I remember a time when there were roaming and long distance costs, too. Now none of that seems to be any extra cost, it’s just rolled in to your regular monthly costs.
Anyway, for those who follow these sorts of trends or are in the know - will data ever come down? Will it go up?
How much is data outside of the US? I’ve always heard we get screwed on cell costs.
