That's why, Darky :) If Koodo started offering unlimited data, more people would cancel their home Internet and tether all their home devices to their smartphone. We use 100GB on our home Internet easily per month and I don't think any mobile carrier would be happy to provide that kind of data :)

We could use the voice minutes analogy. It used to cost an arm and a leg, and it was worse on long distance.

Now we have unlimited canada-wide voice. Why?

People just stopped calling. Simple as that. We use so little voice minutes that to make it appear a "good deal", the carriers had to give them out by the bucket. Economics 101, nothing else here.

The only way for data prices to go down is if we stop buying it. I know I know, unrealistic, but it's how it is, sadly :(

Oh we all want more data for less money Darky... but unfortunately, realistically, I think the prices are only going to go up the coming years - not down. As long as people are willing/able to pay the hefty fees, the nationwide carriers will continue to rake in. Let's hope time proves me wrong here :)
