“Although the commission could have done much more, the decision today is nonetheless a victory for 19 million cell phone customers in California who are often in a ‘cell hell’ of poor service and billing nightmares.”

“The commission still hasn’t done a rigorous analysis of the cost this socalled ‘Bill of Rights’ will have for the California economy, so we don’t know what the impact will be for jobs and economic growth.”
- Len Lauer, president, Sprint Corp.
