$82.76 for 1.7 gigabytes?

I thought I would post one of my wireless bills from Sprint to show how nuts things are here in the US internet-connection wise.

I’m on their only wireless plan that offers 5 gigabytes of bandwidth a month. Anything past that… well, they will just charge you a “small .05 cent overage fee” per megabyte.

So every month I keep a log for that device, and I see during that particular month I updated two mac laptops through the OS’ built-in system update, downloaded 20 YouTube videos, grabbed 28 free iTunes music downloads, 30 free iTunes apps, and 30 Amazon music downloads. That’s all I did on that one device. No other surfing, video, uploading, downloading… nada.

My overage fee? $82.76. For a grand total of $151.93 for one month of highly restrained internet use.

Check it out.
