No contract is nice isn’t it? I think it is, at least you’re not stuck right? T-Mobile has just announced new no contract mobile broadband passes starting at $15 for 300mb for one week and going up to $50 for 5gb for a one month pass. I still don’t understand why prices are so high for this type of thing when some companies can give unlimited for a set price but others have to charge ridiculous amounts. What’s the difference between them except it seems like they want more money. This whole Verizon debacle with them dropping unlimited is just another example of price gouging I think. I honestly do not think bandwidth is this expensive for the carriers, it’s probably small fractions of cents per megabyte. This T-Mobile deal is just as bad. Look at the $15 per week for 300mb, that comes out to 5 cents per megabyte if I’m doing the math correctly. That might seem cheap but it’s really not, it’s damn expensive for a single megabyte. There’s 20 nickels in a dollar so $15 would have 300 nickels. I don’t know, but I do know that we’re all just stuck with this price gouging until someone does something about it.
