But one could argue it's good to allocate resources to their most valuable use, And Verizon is no slouch at putting resources to work.

 

Tell that to the local engineering, tech, and customer service staff that is about to be laid off because VZW's existing regional or national staff can absorb the additional work at a lower cost per worker. You can call that "efficiency," but the cost savings are simply transferred to asshat corporate overlords and shareholders.

 

My perspective: I would much rather have a thousand local wireless carriers than four or five that control the entire country.

No doubt a bunch of smaller providers could employ more people and run just as high quality of network. However the big dogs like Verizon have ran them into the ground.
