Re: ...ouch Up here in Canada smaller companies started up. Right now the have zones, primarily in large urban Areas. Once you leave that zone, you roam on one of the incumbents networks. The incumbents have ben doing their best to make it difficult, instead of a seamless switch, they drop the call. They advertise false claims ( which has cost them huge fines), and lastly started up their own low cost companies to compete with the newcomers.
If you think the US incumbents would do less, you're in for a surprise.
No, I didn't. Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake.......
Oh, I dont put anything past these greedy SOB's and would expect nothing less.
However, one would hope that with time the elected officials will do their job and provide the oversight needed to correct the problems. (Another pipe dream of course)
