Verizon wireless does have a lot of wires to support.  In some cases they use microwave backhaul but in most cases it is fiber from the towers

If I had to pay for tha actual data I used in my unlimited plan some mo ths it would have approached $1000 per month. 

 

I tested and purposely didn't get an AT&T phone because one week of checking email was .6gb.

 

The pricing of this stuff is getting insane. Note Verizon's landline business made $87mm Verizon wireless $13B and they done have any wires to support, you would think like it Europe it would be cheaper.

If they chew through 4Gb in a week I think you can safely assume that they are misusing the phone. I mean jesus, find a damned wifi hotspot. If you get them a standard 2gig/mo plan they should probably not overrun that even if they're watching cat videos in between client meetings. I think you and your company's interests are better served getting them a 1-2 gig plan and then if they overrun go look at the usage. It's not like you're going to hire someone to monitor phone usage, so you would probably only look at the tracking software results if there were a spike in the bills anyhow.

for sure! so here is a question. if our sales team has 4gb of data usage per month and they go through that in 1 week, how can we review to see if they are actually using the data for work purposes or if half of that was because they were commenting on their friends facebook posts.

By the way: sorry for the repeat sends, I actually think I found a bug in Meetup's confirmation process for replying all (loading the URL actually resends the confirm email repeatedly and they look pretty predictable). Will investigate further.

 

More on topic: At my old company gave all the employees computers, no one abused the privilege but we also didn't have any kind of tracking/blocking software. You really can't track halfway since in order to efficiently screen behavior for undesired actions you need to screen everything (or sufficiently high sample rates). I don't think there is a good middle ground between having a trusting relationship between management and employees and full tracking suites in this regard, the exception being just keep an eye on the bill for outrageous usage.
