Wireless carriers openly considering charging per service

Love the internet while it’s still awesome.  Verizon, AT&T, Comcast, and Vodafone want internet users to pay more for the data they use.  They don’t believe the internet should be a free service, so this is a real picture of a proposed plan to go into effect.  Different carriers will have different plans.  For instance this plan has YouTube at a fixed rate while another plan may have Facebook as a fixed rate.  The scary thing about all this is, it’s most likely going to happen. 

If you’re saying “well that’s only 2 cent”, consider this.  Every time you visit a webpage, you usually use about 150 kilobytes (KB) to load up that page.  1000 kilobytes equals 1 megabyte (MB), so if you decide to Facebook stalk Debra because she rejected you in the office, that will be really adding to your bill when you visit her profile.
