With this great phone, who needs wi-fi? Everyone, apparently.

lteI remember when the promises of LTE on mobile carriers made me question (for a moment at least) our decision of deploying campus-wide wireless.  Had we made a mistake rolling out all of the capacity? But as time passed, I’ve come to realize what a sound investment it is.  AT&T and Verizon continue to make their fast LTE internet service painfully expensive, and worse… capped to make it completely unusable.  I thought this article from bgr.com summed up the situation very well.  “Verizon has instituted a system where I actually have incentives to not use its network.”

What has your experience been with mobile carriers?  Do you find yourself using free wi-fi as much as possible?
