I understand that talk and texts have to be allowed to roam for emergencies purposes. So how are the roaming agreements mandated? Is it just saying that if Company A wants to roam onto Company B for data, then Company B has to give them a reasonable price and not just say no? Or is it saying that Company A has to come to an agreement about how roaming is set up with Company B but the prices can be outrageous?

It's just the FCC making up arbitrary rules just for the hell of it...

Honestly....the FCC is getting out of control and becoming a rogue agency....

The purpose of the FCC is to determine what frequencies radio stations can operate on so as to make sure that there aren't any overlapping stations and there is no interference with the signal.....

I can see how the traditional FCC authority over the airwaves could extend from a radio station, to a TV station, to a cellular network, because they are all the same airwaves.

But there is simply NO WAY that the FCC's authority extends to control over the billing practices and the policies that wireless companies engage in. They were never officially granted this authority, they sim...

^^^^ Agreed. The FCC is power crazy lately. I don't think there is any reason that FCC should enforce this. Sad to say but I definitely agree with Verizon on this one.

In the past, the FCC forced carriers to allow voice roaming on their networks at 'reasonable' rates. This did not extend to data roaming...until recently. So now a small fry carrier can sell Nationwide data plans and take advantage of a larger carrier's network. I totally oppose this and this is just one more reason Verizon is going to attempt to limit the scope of the chips they use in their devices...to keep them incompatible with carriers like C-Spire and I don't blame them.

That does make good common sense. Nobody rides the bus for free.
