Verizon announced that they would open their network late last year. Last week they provided details which shows that it isn’t terribly open.
Verizon also one the recent spectrum bidding where again, the definition of open is being debated.
Carlo Longino of MobHappy has written about how “open” has become the big buzzword for mobile this year, but most of what is being called open isn’t really very open.
My favorite is Sprint’s new “OpenWeb” service which seems to be breaking everything on the web. What a mess.
