Euro Phone Carrier Want Data fees from Apple et al

French government-controlled-monopoly wants money from successful American companies instead of fixing their failed business models and economic systems.
If you offer people unlimited data, then that's what you get. If you are making people pay for data by KB, MB, or GB or whatever, then your end customers are already paying for the bandwidth. It looks like France Telecom simply is unwilling to upgrade their network on their own and wants to stick someone else with the bill.
