And a majority of consumers don't care enough

said by Karl Bode:

In a truly healthy competitive market, that price would be users leaving Verizon and heading to carriers with more open-minded and intelligent executives. But despite claims, this isn't an entirely healthy and competitive wireless market.

VZ, the largest wireless operator in the US, continues to grow wireless subs, which suggests that a majority US consumers don't care enough about VZ's business practices to do anything about them. Given at least a couple of alternative providers in most markets, the demand for VZ's products and services are greater than the tepid desire for "openness".

In the short term however, without functioning regulators and healthy competition, consumers get to feel the brunt of the stupidity.

Consumer stupidity? Once again, consumers choose their poison. I love how some people continue attempting to displace fault.
