AT&T exec #2: We could put out more WiFi hotspots. People seem to use those. Sometimes.
AT&T exec #1: Sure, but that's not going to make a dent in places like New York City. I mean, have you used an iPhone there?
AT&T exec #2: We have these things called MicroCells that people can use at home, if they live in North Carolina. Maybe more people could use those?
AT&T exec #1: Yeah, that's good. But people like to use their cellphones outside their house too. What happens then?
AT&T exec #2: Well, what if we offered customers incentives to use less data?
AT&T exec #1: Now you're talking! What sort of incentives could get them to do that?
AT&T exec #2: Hmm....
Well, readers, are there any incentives that would get you to use less data? Feel free to offer your suggestions for AT&T in the comments below. And don't worry about actually paying more for data (yet, anyway), as AT&T 's Ralph de la Vega is now saying that "we have not made any decision to implement tiered pricing," which is a slight backtrack from previous hints to the contrary.
