"It is no coincidence that in April 2011, KPN started warning about surprising SMS volume erosion and announcing major layoffs."

So KPN had staff which had to process SMS messages, and when there were fewer SMS messages the staff was no longer needed? Or KPN didn't bother looking for fat to trim until lean times?

People still pay for individual texts in the Netherlands? But Fark Liberals assured me that only America had bad mobile service!

/Verizon Prepaid $80 a month
//unlimited voice, text, and 1GB data
///1 GB is plenty when all you use it for is e-mail, documents and schedules

We pay way too much for what we actually get in comparison with many developed and even some developing countries.

And $80/month for what you get is way too much even in America. Straight Talk BYOD SIM is $45 for the same but "unlimited" data - rumored to be about 2 GB. Even AT&T will sell you prepaid for $50/mo "unlimited" that includes a pretty fair number of international text destinations as part of the plan.

I see that someone does not have to use the DC Metro subway. Sadly, due to Metro's lack of diversity, the other carriers are not allowed to provide service despite screaming for the right to do so. I am well aware that T-Mobile offers a better deal, but it does not work in my case. 

/but AT&T seriously dude?
//that's low
