|Why is Verizon Not Investing More Money Into Their Infrastructure?|
Are you one of the suckers willing to pay $1000 per year for high-speed wireless access (LTE) when WiFi is free? Fewer Verizon and & AT&T customers are buying the iPad 3G data plans and one of the reasons why Apple's (AAPL) stock is getting crushed. iPads should be subsidized by the carriers if they want to continue tricking consumers into spending hundreds of dollars extra for mobile data outside of their WiFi home networks.
All of these issues creating the perfect storm for industry disruption and WiFi could just be the vehicle that brings this house of cards tumbling down. It would only take a few million people to open up internet access on their home and business WiFi networks similar to the Fonera business model in France. See Fon.com. One of the only companies that is capable of executing this disruption to scale is Google because of their advertising footprint and I can't wait until it happens. Its only a matter of time before the AT&T and Verizon dividend ponzi scheme house of cards comes tumbling down.
