My idea is...

Verizon's monthly fee for tethering smart phone.

Why do I have to pay an extra monthly fee to tether my Verizon phone to my laptop when I am paying for unlimited internet? Does it really matter how I use the unlimited internet. Thats like getting DSL service and paying an extra fee to connect each computer in the house!!! I do not think this is fair at all.

        Phone Traffic should be free. All we need to do is get the FCC to get roof top
        routers permission to exists. Hardware will be built and the last mile will not
        cost anything. this will promote competition and we will have many ISP from
        witch to pick to get on the Internet.

        This applies to all of the companies - it is not unique to Verizon. Sprint for example does not allow tethering, but will sell you another phone line to accomplish what is already built in. It all boils down to greed.
