Actually, your right- look at what a great scene the wireless voice  
business is, now that ma' bell is no longer the monopoly (Cingular,  
AT&T, Verizon, TMobile, Sprint/Nextel, etc...)

Why is there so much greed (it seems), resulting in bad service, in  
the big-scale telco biz?  Is this just what happens when any idea  
scales to masses of people?  (parallel: internent standards are often  
the more inferior technological ideas, but we all agree to use them  
so they work...)  What makes this stuff tick?
