Verizon says it cuts costs through Open Access
On 27 November 2007 Verizon announced open access, which means that the carrier will not have the firm grip it had before upon what devices, services and downloads clients can use. COO Denny Strigl said that this is motivated by the desire to cut costs and he expects many other carriers to offer open access. The plan is to carry traffic generated by third party very much like Sprint, which is providing similar service to for its book reading device. In short, customers will be able to use third party devices. The users will pay Verizon based on the network usage.
