Sometimes these things write themselves

As I mentioned  yesterday in point 5, Verizon Wireless has made a business out of their network infrastructure and they promote it as a core competitive advantage. Today, Fierce Wireless quotes Verizon Wireless CTO Tony Melone as saying:

“I am not a believer in outsourcing,” said Tony Melone, Verizon Wireless’ senior vice president and chief technology officer, during a question-and-answer session at Ericsson’s Capital Markets Day event here.

Melone said Verizon Wireless has long worked to promote the quality and reliability of its network–he trumpeted that the carrier has spent $50 billion on its wireless network since 2000. Thus, Melone said, outsourcing its network operations wouldn’t jive with the reliable-network image the carrier has spent billions pushing onto consumers.”

This jives exactly with my thoughts on the matter as mentioned yesterday.
