There's a hell of a lot of technology involved that's why.
It's not like CB or HAM radio, there's a massive transmitter in most
town and cities, there's repeater stations. It's all electronics that
costs money to run, electricity, repairs etc.
I don't pay rental costs, I just pay for calls and texts. It costs me
more but then I don't use it much as I'm near a computer or landline
a lot of the time.
