There exists a large number of companies that make large profits largely 
because they sell based on what they think the customer will pay.  NDAs 
keep customers from comparing prices, and competitors from competing on 
price.  This has been a pretty common telecom practice, though not NDA 
specifically.  This is why the "let me see a copy of your phone bill" 
line is so ill-advised to be substantiated when talking to a new 
provider.  If you give them your phone bill, they know exactly where the 
bar must be set to win.
