Oh, that's interesting. . . wireless is a 'good scene' in the US?

I actually think deregulation was the problem with telecom in the  
US. . . Bell Labs, .Ike?  Compare it before and after deregulation. . .

And AFAIK and have seen, the European scene is much better with GSM  
as the standard in terms of coverage, although not in terms of  
pricing (although incoming is free).  And AFAIK, the European GSM  
adoption was a basically pseudo-public/gov't endeavor . . .
