Mobile data plans that are unlimited are getting a makeover thanks to several mobile carriers. In fact, they may be dying a natural death.
The mobile world is changing for the better. Take the case of T-Mobile. The cost for 3GB data per month was lowered. However, the unlimited data clientele had to pay more than the usual fare.
Why this contradiction of sorts? It seems that sometimes success can get to an organization’s head. The utility of information relay cables by mobile carriers causes deficits in the system that need to be covered.
That is why ultimately the number of individuals employing the facility for residential Internet purposes has to be slashed. An ordinary home user may take up as much data as two dozen mobile users.
And the users who utilize 1GB and 2GB of data have increased by 50% since the previous year. People change and so trends undergo a transformation of sorts.
So it seems that T-Mobile has a plan to attract 2GB clientele and make its 20GB customers pay. While the big four had unlimited data availability a few years ago, two of them quit some time ago.
They are AT&T and Verizon. Sprint and T-Mobile have however still stuck with this dinosaur trend. Looks like the unlimited buffet may be headed for an early grave though. There are rumors regarding this and it may become a reality someday.
That is because home Net usage capacities have skyrocketed to 250GB which is a lot indeed. Besides, Time Warner’s merger with Comcast means that there will have to be some accommodative changes in the arena.
The extinction of unlimited mobile data plans is a fate that is written on the wall in crystal clear letters. And the sooner we get used to this bitter fact the better it is for us.
Change is the law of life and nothing lasts forever. No matter how attractive a feature is pretty soon the world tires of it and new things come in tow. That’s the way it has always been and will always be.
