With Google about to possibly compete with established telcos for some precious radio space, Verizon Wireless has joined fellow telephone company AT&T in supporting "some" open access suggestions for the upcoming 700 MHz radio auctions. Verizon Wireless appears to be treading carefully here though, as it agreed to give a certain "portion" of the 700 MHz band up for wireless usage by any carrier's wireless device but did not elaborate on support for anything else open access-wise in the 700 MHz band (yet). Obviously, the carrier said that it would not give any quality assurance for wireless equipment and devices other than from itself.
