# The UK is one of the world’s most competitive wireless markets
# Read it and weep. Orange here offers the blackberry 8800 for only 79 pounds with plan. The Pearl is free. Compare with Rogers here. ahem, not free.
# There’s wifi networks everywhere, mostly these are not free but they do explicitly offer and advertise skype and voip services for, example, nokia n-series phones.
# Carriers here and in europe actually offer the the wonderful nokia n-series phones. sigh.
# Wifi carriers partner widely. I’m posting this thanks to a 2 month boingo trial subscription (a great investment) I bought back in Miami Intnl’ 4 weeks ago and it’s given me unlimited access everywhere here.
# I don’t need to tell you about the data rates.
