Telecoms Trying To Shift The Blame To The Government
from the it's-not-us! dept
The telecom sector is in serious trouble. Of course, a lot of people have been blaming the greedy, unethical, or just plain stupid management of the various telecom companies for the mess they’re in. It seems the telecom companies are starting a PR campaign to fight that image and it’s starting with an article in USA Today explaining why it’s really (really!) the government’s fault that telecom is in trouble. They blame “greedy” local governments for trying to get extra money out of the various telecom initiatives, that either drove up the prices for telecom companies, or made them have to make costly changes that left certain areas uncovered. I don’t doubt that there’s plenty of blame to go around for just about everyone involved, but it doesn’t seem likely that the telecom industry is getting ready to admit their own mistakes in all of this either.
