How are those profits ok - when the consumer suffers from the WORST service in history, continual dropped calls, expensive line rental, and beyond sub par customer service? The UK mobile fines cost the user around $40/month, allow tethering for free, and pay and additional $7/mth for home broadband! We are being extorted in the United States, and we need to open our eyes and exercise our rights people!
