“In a rare moment of collaboration, wireless providers AT&T and T-Mobile have agreed to share networks in the challenging days following Superstorm Sandy, allowing customers to use whichever network gets coverage in their areas.”
Users often find themselves in the dead zones of their ISP. What if they all shared all the time? It’s technically feasible. Maybe a storm will provoke a realization that together we are stronger and more capable than we are divided and competing. The same is true for software. Non-open standards anywhere in IT is stupid.
