Verizon Makes It Easy To Go Over Your Data Cap

jfruhlinger writes "Verizon Wireless has revamped its video service; many Android phones can now stream a full episodes from a number of current TV shows. You can even choose to just buy access for a day if you don't see yourself using the service often. Sounds great, right? Well, except for the part where all of Verizon's current smartphone plans have data caps — and the new service makes it awfully easy to go over them and incur overage charges."

I saw this coming months ago when they started acting funny with the data caps..... There should be some kind of regulation the restricts what a wireless or any company limited by bandwidth can do if they place a cap on their accounts.. the restrictions should be based on the cap and cost of the plan. That would help throw a stick in their already crooked wheels.
