Wireless Providers Mourn Victims

The show began on a somber note when Tom Wheeler, the president and CEO of the Cellular Telecommunications and Internet Association, which sponsors the event, asked attendees to stand and bow their heads to remember those affected by this mornings terrorist attacks before introducing the first speaker. And while it was with reluctance that speakers on stage began to discuss wireless telecommunications, it was with a feeling that if they didnt, our attackers would have won.
The topic of wireless isnt totally irrelevant. "Its at a time of disaster that communications are key," Wheeler said.
