You might think forced free tethering is awesome.
Here's the actual effect it has had - everyone gets to pay more for data since everyone has to be able to tether. The new mandatory shared data plans are more expensive than older piecemeal plans. WHat about people that didn't want to pay for tethering? Too bad.
Government regulation is like violence. If little doesn't help, use more of it. In this case you regulate upper limit to the data plans. Make the limits low.
Look how GOVERNMENT REGULATION is ruining things for the consumer again!
That's why communism is ultimately the best way to go. Only with government regulation and government work program you can expect everything to go well for everyone.
Sure, there are no rich people anyway, but more people (all people) get to enjoy good life.
