Sorry, I know I'm on a forced vacation but I can't resist.
Verizon Wireless pressing the button on unlimited (well lets all read the fine print) calling is a sign that mobile is racing to the bottom just like land line voice and VoIP have already basically done.
It also means they are anticipating all kinds of new competition (read mobile VoIP) and striking the first blow in a race that will be won by applications and new services, not on minutes. Does that sound familiar?
What I'm waiting for is the shoe to drop on Wireless data plans. I'm also seeing the lessons learned by Vodafone in the UK, perhaps the most fiercely competitive wireless market around, being applied here.
