AT&T's Network the 'Most Open?' Yeah, 'Most Open' to the U.S. Government

Unlike Verizon, AT&T doesn’t need to open up its wireless network to other wireless devices. Why? According to Ralph de la Vega, CEO of AT&T’s wireless business, the company’s network has always been open. “We are the most open wireless company in the industry. You can use any handset on our network you want,” de la Vega told USA Today. “We don’t prohibit it, or even police it.”

So non-AT&T phones work on AT&T’s network. AT&T just didn’t bother to tell anyone–until all this talk of open-access wireless and Google’s open mobile-software platform, Android, made it a PR talking point. Your turn, T-Mobile.
