An Open Verizon Helps Mobile Banking

This story has been circulating and was in this mornings USA Today.

The third paragraph summarizes the article best by stating, "Now, at last, cracks are appearing in the bizarre, sealed-off market for U.S. cellphone users. Verizon, the nation's No.2 cell network and until now an adamant defender of the 'walled garden' approach, said Tuesday that it would knock down those walls for its customers."

I applaud Verizon and their leadership in the mobile space. The story states that they are currently the No.2 cell network, but maybe we'll start to see the market vote with their dollars and boost them into the No. 1 spot.

It is this type of forward thinking that will help the entire mobile landscape (mobile banking and payments included) to reach its fullest potential. If anyone out there has a contact at Verizon I would enjoy speaking with them more about their decision.Full Story...
