OTOH, never underestimate "Because we can".

in their own words (vzw)[1]:
"Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ) provided a very bullish outlook on
the company’s financial position of its wireless unit today, by saying
that it will likely beat its own estimates of achieving 43 percent to
45 percent profit margins,"

Note in the past I'd said 'verizon plans on 35%+ profit on anything in
the wireless space'... I was 10% points off ;(

So... 'because we can' seems to fit well here. Yes, I do understand
their need/want/etc to 'maximize shareholder value', but they
certainly aren't putting caps on because of hardship.
