I like that Google has given people the opportunity not to be bound to carriers in return for a discount. When customers can come and go as they please, maybe providers will start offering better service and support.



More consumer mobility between carriers could have a good effect on competition, which would be especially useful here where the trend seems to be getting less for more.
