AT&T is going to eliminate unlimited data plans for smart-phones to help cut costs by giving incentives to users to stream data more conservatively. FOCUS: Do you think it's right to charge people for using exorbitant amounts of data on their phones or do you think the unlimited plans should stay? I think this is great, 2% of the population is using about 40% of the data and everyone else is implicitly subsidizing their monthly bill by paying for more than they use themselves. I equate it to an "unlimited electricity plan" where the guy who has all energy efficient appliances and is a tight ass about turning off lights paying as much as the guy pumping central air with his windows open. That said... Alt Focus: What other "unlimited" products/services could/should have pay per usage fees? Personally I'd shit a brick if I had to pay overage charges on my home internet (yes, I'm a blatant hypocrite) since I stream movies from Netflix like three times a week and play on PSN a lot. Not to mention I live with 3 other guys all of home are bigger dorks than me (scary, I know). Another touchy one that I've seen in some towns in New England is that they charge variably for waste. They have trash pickup, but will only pick up trash in bags purchased from the town for $1-$5 per bag, they will however take recycling for free. The purpose is to get people to think about how much waste they produce and try to recycle more. I like this from an ideological viewpoint, but in practice it's a pain in the fucking ass and a bunch of people end up dumping stuff illegally so they don't have to deal with paying it.
