    I have to comment that churn in rural areas will probably increase
    dramatically as soon as portability takes effect there. We all know
    that urban areas are much better covered than rural areas. I live in a
    city of 60,000 right now and almost every call gets dropped (roaming on
    Western Wireless). Statewide coverage is not that good, even with
    Verizon's "Most Reliable Network Equipment and Coverage". I know many
    people who want to drop "Cellular One" or any other service.

    And a lot are waiting for number portability to take effect in other
    areas (for example -- the rest of the United States outside of 100 MSA's).
