The Null Device

Economic rationalism in the news: Telstra disconnects terminally ill woman's mobile phone, allegedly so that the contract could be paid out before she died.
"When I asked and the guy went and got the supervisor and he came and said the notation on her file said she had cancer, they wanted the contract paid out before she died and it was easier for them to get the money from a living person than from an estate, they wanted the money paid out,"

A Telstra spokesdroid has denied any policy of weeding out terminally ill customers or other poor revenue prospects in this fashion.
