An anonymous reader writes: We all have been taught the basics of supply and demand since high school. If demand is high, prices rise. If demand is low, prices fall. Simple, but true; yet this concept can be manipulated artificially if, as seen with the latest projections of mobile operators, that higher demand means higher prices. Are the dire predictions being promoted by operator’s a true demand, as we have been told, or capacity hoarding that will lead to artificially higher prices and more profits for the mobile industry?
