Verizon Wireless joins Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group


Verizon Wireless is the latest member to join the Ubuntu Carrier Advisory Group. Verizon Wireless is the largest mobile network operator in the US and being able to work closely with them gives us an opportunity to shape Ubuntu into the most compelling new, alternative platform for mobile.  Samir Vaidya from the Device Technology team at Verizon Wireless said: “Verizon Wireless is joining Ubuntu’s Carrier Advisory Group to participate in technology discussions around this new platform, which has the ability to bring new and exciting features to developers and ultimately, customers.”

Invitations are extended to any national or multinational carrier who wishes to join the CAG. The group will close to new members at the end of July. Carriers interested in further information about CAG membership may contact Canonical directly at
