Wireless Association's CEO Comments on Verizon Announcement

By Brian Solomon, TMCnet Web Editor

Steve Largent (News - Alert), president and CEO of the Wireless Association issued an interesting statement today, responding to Verizon Wireless' major announcement that customers will now be allowed the option of using wireless devices, software and applications not offered by Verizon (News - Alert) itself.

"Over the past several weeks, the wireless industry has repeatedly demonstrated that competitive market forces bring consumers the choices they want and need in a far more efficient and effective manner than can government regulation,” Largent states. “Today's announcement by Verizon Wireless, as well as recent announcements by AT&T, Sprint (News - Alert) and T-Mobile regarding open platforms, show that wireless carriers listen closely to what their customers demand, and act quickly to bring those desired products and services to market.
"The commercial wireless industry continues to evolve and works hard to provide what American consumers want and need to stay in-touch and connected in an increasingly mobile world,” continues Largent.
