First Sprint last year, now Verizon jumps on the bandwaggon….
The hike, which will take effect March 1st, will bump the cost of sending a text message to the U.S., Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico from $0.10 to $0.15 per message, with the price for international text messages remaining at $0.25 per message. The cost of receiving a message from customers of foreign wireless carriers, however, will increase to $0.15 whether you subscribe to a messaging package or not.
Absolutely ridiculous. What justification can there be to increase the price of a standard rate text by 50%? Inflation? 😉
I’ll stop there. No need to get annoyed. Why? Because, alas, it seems no one cares. One would imagine that if petrol (or “gas”) prices increase 50%, folk would be outraged. Do the same with text? Nah. Not an issue.
Strange, I think it’s just me that’s incandescent on behalf of all Verizon subscribers.
