Wireless companies just love it when you go over the data rate plan. So much so they seem to find ways to make you to it as often as possible. Or, they just count on you to screw up. People have a remarkable penchant for that, as our list of incredible data plan overages and the multi-digit bills that accompanied them will attest. Take a look at the bad, the really bad, and the expensive on Enterprise Mobile Today.
Holy data plan danger! As any mobile IT manager knows, keeping data plan costs in check can be a daunting task – especially when you get an overage bill in six digits.
