Why our cellphone bills keep going up

You'd think that with the various wireless carriers competing for our business, prices would be coming down. But the Wall Street Journal, in a story today, finds that the companies are managing to get more money out of us - even though U.S. service still lags that in other countries

Here's what the Journal found:

Average monthly revenue per postpaid customer across the industry rose 2.2% to $61.15 in the fourth quarter, according to New Street Research. That is up more than $5 per user from the first quarter of 2010, when the same measure was at $55.80.
