Re: Technology companies vs. telcos
Thanks for the thought @batye.   But we have to again make sure that we have proper checks and balances in place as we assess whether this in fact is viable or not.

Re: Technology companies vs. telcos
@mpouraryan  I think open source would be a good solution to this problem...

Re: Technology companies vs. telcos
..and as I am "catching up on the discourse", I could not help but wonder whether open source will be the solution to this challenge?    Is it even realistic?

Re: Technology companies vs. telcos
While Apple and Google effort might seem to be a solution for "controlling operations costs while facing pricing pressure," it's still not clear to me that these companies will be successul in the short term with the increasing customer acquisition race by competitor and just how much those cost can be reduced while still gaining enough profit from falling prices for services and products.

Re: Technology companies vs. telcos
That's no easy feat. Many of them have focused on lobbying and turf protection over innovation for going on a generation now. And, if you see many of the "me too" content efforts being launched by many telcos, it shows.

Re: Technology companies vs. telcos
While the plans mentioned seem like a great idea espcially for consumers that will have more options and theorectically better service because of the technologiy, the recent comments I've hearsd  about Google's operation seem to indicate some disadvantages mostly from the customer service area. "Google's Project Fi service is currently available by invitation only to maintain high quality while they scale up the service," as noted but it seems there's not a real big price advantage some observers note, while the quality of their service is also coming under fire.

Long game
Making carriers a merely incidental part of the conversation has long been a part of Apple's strategy -- so as to make the choice simply one regarding the phone itself (namely, iPhone).  The company has even long held a patent on a mechanism to shop online via one's iPhone for carrier plans and pricing and enable them instantly.

Technology companies vs. telcos
It's really interesting to see what's happening here with technology companies. It seems as if many of them feel like they have learned all they need to know about the telecom industry and therefore are now circumventing them in some ways. 

This is not going to abate. Telcos are going to have to figure out how to be more nimble in order to survive.
