So is Verizon worse than the rest of the bunch? On this issue, it is. But the whole bunch is crummy.
On a different -- but related -- note, I want to add that the collapse of Sprint's proposed purchase of T-Mobile is very good news for consumers. Combining the number three and four carriers would have been a serious blow to competition in the wireless market. Sprint's owner, Japan's Softbank, likely realized that U.S. regulators would not approve the merger and therefore pulled the plug.
