Just a quick check on my choices for 21st century data services available at my apartment in New York city:
Internet, Landline, Television
- Time Warner Cable
Oops, only TWC from today based on the agreement reached where Verizon quit the land-based business (See Susan Crawford’s article: Smug and chagrined). So no choice.
T-Mobile(still a dead spot after 8 years) Sprint(same as T-Mobile)
Neither work well, so I have to stick with AT&T because at least they have a MicroCell. Until the iPhone 4S came out on Verizon, their phones were no good for overseas anyway. Average 1 not-dropped call a day.
Sounds like I have a choice between one expensive carrier or another that both offer terrible service. So no choice.
I guess this is how the free market ‘works’?
