[ NNSquad ] Re: [IP] WORTH READING This Is Why People Hate the Phone Company, AT&T - Tested
I’m glad that others are noticing that we being taken advantage of. As I’ve pointed out – T-Mobile took a different approach and tunnels over IP instead of requiring a special device. In both cases I am contributing to their network and don’t get any compensation for traffic that goes over a connection I pay for.
We do need to ask why all cell phones don’t take advantage of the IP path when available instead of requiring a special complex device just for one protocol (which is primarily about billing)? What if we had a different device for video and other device for land line audio (phones) etc. Seems crazy except that it’s the norm.
The real question is when do we learn from all these examples and just recognize that there is something wrong with the twisty windy billable paths model and go for a common infrastructure normalized to bits.
As usual I invite other opinions djf
