How does a small wireless carrier in France get three million subscribers in just three months? Offer a "dumb pipe" plan that gives you everything for only $25 a month, as in unlimited voice, unlimited text, 3GB of fair-use bandwidth and unlimited Wi-Fi hotspot access to over 5 million points, and – get this – unlimited tethering at no additional charge.
This basically amplifies how bad you get screwed in the US with our wireless plans. Now some of you may think, "3GB of bandwidth doesn’t sound like much.." I’ll give you that, but remember the price point. 25 bucks a month. I’d sign up for that in a second if it were available here.
