This is a spurious assertion. The only constraint on mobile bandwith is tower density, if we can build broadband to the home, the network capacity is just sitting there waiting to be utilized. Post like these are strange in your overall context of $1,000,000,000,000.00 industry with super future fatastic phones in South Korea. Is it feast or famine? It can't be both.

i totally agree. bandwidth is limited on cellular networks and the providers must (should!!) educate their customers to not waste bandwidth!
in germany, most (if not all) mobile broadband contracts offer unlimited data on the one hand. But on the other hand, bandwidth is cut down from 3.5G speeds to 2G once you reach a certain threshold (e.g. 5 GB/month). this pricing model should keep networks free from congestion until capacities increase (and the corresponding tarifs of course..) yes, bandwidth costs money.

it's a totally different story on fixed lines like DSL/cable as capacities are virtually unlimited (by fibre optics technology). nevertheless, it's still reasonable to apply limits even in this situation as bandwidth costs money as well. companies must make reasonable calculations. if they don't, it's them who have to pay the price in the end.

you have to do something about the congestion - and yes, congestion charging is the most 'logical' way to solve it.


The new brand of clothes are nothing like the old one. Right now, almost everything is done in different countries and then imported to the United States to be sold to consumers.

I deficiency to warning you however Mr. President that there are immobile unruly media people. Even later one of your soldiers, any person who was endeavouring to save law during the so summoned Walk to task (call it walk to detention centre since those any person who participate are well hunted and extracted to the beach), conveyed them that slaughter a journalist by misfortune in a riot is not a crime, they insist and go along with Besigye. Today they issued fake photos of your operatives retaining a hammer, the very hammer that Besigye brought from his car.
