According to an article on the New York TImes, the Justice Department has opened an antitrust investigation into AT&T, Verizon, and the G.S.M.A. The investigation is said to be into potential coordination by the companies to thwart eSIM technology. eSIM technology would allow users to switch wireless providers remotely without having to change the SIM card. The investigation was opened about five months ago when at least one device maker, and one wireless carrier filed formal complaints with the Justice Department. Honestly the accusations don't surprise me at all. Hopefully the Justice Department will step up and end this, as well as other anti-consumer practices. AT&T and Verizon face accusations that they colluded with the G.S.M.A. to try to establish standards that would allow them to lock a device to their network even if it had eSIM technology.
