The cable industry could become formidable competition for the two big operators but right now Time Warner, Comcast, Cable Vision have their head up their ass focussed on Wifi. Cox on the other hand is buying wireless spectrum and has a chance to be very disruptive if they can get the handsets and femtocells right. One thing that does concern me is their dependence on Sprint and Clearwire for reseller contracts. Stick to your quad bundles and offer Broadband, DVRs, Femtocells and Voice (Wireless & Land).

I often wonder will lack of customer churn persist if other handset manufacturers begin to catch up to the cult manufacture we know as Apple. I share the view that its best to chose a carrier who has least amount customers in areas your frequent. For example, there are very few T-Mobile customers in my neighborhood and therefore my coverage is pretty good at my home. Also, I love the Android operating system and G1 phone so I am a bit biased. I always recommend being somewhat of a contrarian when shopping for phones and its great to understand who is experiencing dropped calls and data congestion in your area. It is likely that too many people are competing for the same cell phone tower.
