Whether 2Gb for $10 is a good deal or not isn't the point. It's not advertised as 2Gb for $10. It's advertised as 'Unlimited Mobile Browsing' for $10. 'Unlimited Mobile Browsing' is intentionally being marketed to smartphone users. It doesn't take many pics or videos to whiz through 2Gb on a smartphone. Perhaps the trolls interpret browsing differently than normal people do. 'Text only WAP pages! You illegal use! ToS!'
Jesus. If you don't like Speakout's terms, you are free to use another service provider. It will cost you hundreds of dollars a year more and we won't have to listen to your indignant yammering.

We will never see 2GB for $10 of true data from a Big 3 or an MVNO on the Big 3 network.
I wouldn't say 'never'. Not likely in the near term, I agree. However, several of the Big 3 and their brands/MVNOs have begun to offer 5-6Gb/month for $30-35, advertised as tablet (ie data) only plans. I think Rogers still ocasionally offers 6Gb/month data add-on promos for around the same price. Not unreasonable to imagine that scaled down, since there's little additional overhead per subscriber. Granted, they probably wouldn't want to do that as it would significantly reduce their beloved ARPU metric...

Only wish WIND or Mobilicity were available around here, given they now offer data only plans at very reasonable rates.

Wonder if it's possible to kill this thread, given that SpeakOut's nowhere-near-"Unlimited Mobile Browsing" is dead?
