AT&T Will Soon Learn Their Lesson

AT&T Wireless chose nightfire because they used the company when porting numbers to their fixed wireless service, they actually chose nightfire before any of the other big 6 chose TSI. You can't really blame Nightfire or AT&T Wireless because TSI didn't setup their porting systems according to regulation.
