        I have Veriscum FIO$ (fiber to the home) TV service (which is good, but you pay through the nose) and WiFi service (which is mediocre and you still pay through the nose). I used to have their mobile service which was mediocre (and, you guessed it, you still paid through nose with the post nasal drip of all sorts of added fees).

    I have Verizon for cellular and Spectrum for internet, because they are the best and most cost-effective options available where I live.

    What a sad, sad state of affairs.

    Hans chooses Nokia?

    So did Hans choose Nokia because of the merits of the offering or to spite Ericsson?
