if you want a punishment to have a lasting effect, you have to actually charge people with a crime. start putting executives in jail and you might see companies stop trying to pull this crap. short of that, the fine has to be crushing. seriously, $150M is written off as a cost of business expense. hit them with a $150B fine and you will get real change.

150 Million is enough to catch any businesses attention, 150 Billion can't be covered without destroying any business I know of, including big oil and Apple.

The goal - they're going to have to justify a lack of 150 Million in value to their stock holders.Start threatening Sprint with having to explain their spastic coverage and Verizon with their data-caps that keep subscribers away in the package and everything should be good.
