I am not a big fan of the ‘mobile web’ primarily because of the way that consumers are constantly being jacked by providers. As far as the providers are concerned signing up for their mobile services is akin to handing them over a blank check with your signature on it. Unfortunately much of these self-same mobile practices are finding their way into our normal internet connections as well.
Increasingly we are hearing of broadband providers whining about how they just have to switch to using download caps and extra billing wherever they can. Of course this is all happening at the same time as we are seeing a push for more streaming content, bigger video files and living life in the cloud. I’ll bet if you listened real close you could hear the cha-ching of profit margin and the high-five in the boardrooms of providers.
