In reply to discolarry125
discolarry125, you're correct about the backhaul (link between cell sites and switch) in areas that Verizon, or other unionized companies, provide landline service.

I can't fully agree with you elsewhere. There are many other providers for backhaul service. Those switches aren't maintained by union members since they are in the Wireless side of the company (in which very few employees are unionized).

As this article mentioned, Verizon may have damaged it's reputation with some customers. However, the individuals in the unions chose to stop working. They weren't forced by their employer. Verizon had a business continuity plan, and it worked out better than anyone had hoped.

How important is a candidate's knowledge of technology in winning your vote?
Extremely -- technology is at the center of most of the world's big problems and solutions.
Very -- a candidate who doesn't understand technology can't relate to young people.
Somewhat -- a general understanding is sufficient.
Not very -- choosing good advisers is more important than direct knowledge.
Not at all -- technology is often a distraction from more important issues.
