AT&T, Verizon Grudgingly Move Toward Openness

There’s a chance we have just witnessed a crucial — revolutionary, even — week for the U.S. wireless industry as major carriers open up their networks and businesses. Or we may just be seeing the nation’s two top network operators play their cards in a crafty effort to fend of regulators as the FCC increasingly signals its eagerness to intervene in an industry that has become a must-have means of communication for mainstream Americans.

There’s at least some truth in each scenario. Honestly, though, I’m not sure it matters.
