Verizon Wireless (VZW) has been reportedly blocking SIP traffic on the LTE network according to the folks at OnSip. While the revelation is news to some, it is not to me. I've been calling and asking the Verizon Wireless about it since they launched their LTE network and I discovered I couldn't make a SIP call on my MiFi from them, or any LTE device. I never really got an "honest" answer, and instead got the dumb folk run-around...some support folks tried to blame my device manufacturer (Samsung), other tried to blame CounterPath's Bria, some tried to blame the ITSPs (I tried four and all work on T-Mobile and AT&T, as well as Sprint and Clearwire) so I knew it was Verizon.
Isn't it time for Equal Access when it comes to voice over data networks? I mean, if LTE is replacing DSL shouldn't a NAKED option also exist for wireless networks?
