Wondering why your phone bill keeps going up? Thank the government.
Are you wondering why the cost of your smartphone plan keeps going up? Remember last year when AT&T hiked rates and Verizon switched from offering individual plans to a Share Everything plan? Unlimited data used to be the norm, but today people are fortunate if 1GB of data is included in their plan. On top of that, nearly every carrier has introduced some sort of data throttling, which slows down access speeds after you hit a data cap.
