Wireless Providers May Learn From Health Reform Opponents
Right now, even with Congress in recess, there is a pitch battle going on in town halls and on airwaves over the healthcare reform.
No matter which side you're on, I think a majority of mobile warriors want a free wireless Internet landscape that is entirely unobstructed by self-serving gatekeepers. One day, that battle will come to Washington as well.
The next battle is likely going to be about immigration after this healthcare debate is over. We probably won't get our chance at "change" until after the 2010 mid-term elections. Still, both sides of the wireless battles will be watching how the current political battles are being waged.
The advantage will go to the wireless providers as they've got just as large and army of lobbyists as the insurance companies. And believe me, if there is a "death board" opportunity, the wireless providers and telecoms will not hesitate to use it.
