You’d think data grows on trees based on how tightly cell companies try to ration and regulate it. It’s not a finite resource! Your phone company is not going to run out of data, but you are. Those cables and satellites exist regardless of how much data the individual uses, but that’s not what Verizon wants you to think. We pay exorbitant fees for 5Gs of data, and then have to pay double that for 1 extra gigabyte. It’s a completely arbitrary number decided on by the company. Plus, most companies won’t even let you roll it over! It’s so dumb. It’s just another way for companies to make money by selling us something that we can’t really live without but also shouldn’t have to pay so much for.
