Interesting idea

A new wifi-based phone carrier will offer unlimited data, voice and text for $20 a month. They do that by using wifi when they can.

    Great – now they’ll be even MORE people yakking on their cell phones in the library.

    Except that “unlimited data” is even less “unlimited” than the big carriers’ “unlimited”.

    As it says, “According to the carrier, “you could consume 550 minutes, send 150 texts, and download 300 megabytes of data without crossing the community’s fair use threshold” .

    Use more than 300 megs in a month, and get cut off.

    Even pseudo-unlimited on the big carriers gives you 2 to 5 gigs, not 300 megs.

    That’s the most deceptive claim of “unlimited data” I’ve ever seen, and that’s saying a lot.

    (Not to mention being limited to one crappy handset…)
