xerohype,

The carriers don't want their users going off to third party web sites. They want their users staying on their WAP websites much like Aol has done with their service.

As a consumer I would rather have access to the whole web, not just one portion of it pre-packaged by INSP.


I'm glad you came back with your last sentence, because I was about to cry, "Who cares what the carriers want? I want to have access to everything the way I want it, not their way."

To me that's what will make this acceptable or not. AOL's 20 million accounts or not, I would think they are only a fraction of all the people that's on the web, isn't it? And I'll bet they don't know or care much about the way the 20 million AOL users have to use their internet access.
