Satellite Data Cheaper than Sending Text Messages

Look, Pound360 doesn't want to get into a protracted argument about profit margins, market forces and all that, but let's face it, cell phone companies gouge us. Especially when it comes to text messages. According to a British researcher, $.10 per text is the equivalent of $749 per megabyte, reports Popular Mechanics. Satellite data by comparison costs $12 per megabyte to retrieve.

About Me

My photo
I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
