Submission + - IEEE vet: Carriers capping LTE services to avoid fixed-line cannibalization (networkworld.com)

alphadogg writes: Roberto Saracco isn't buying carriers' claims that they need to put data caps on their LTE services due to excessive traffic causing massive engineering challenges. Saracco, a senior member of the IEEE and the director of the Telecom Italia Future Centre, said during an interview Tuesday that the major reason carriers are placing data caps on their LTE services is to prevent users from going exclusively with wireless data services and ditching their landline connections. "You're always going to want to make the maximum amount of value," he said. "And you don't want to have your fixed-line network being cannibalized by mobile."
