I know they've been doing this for a while - ours is now NTelos and Verizon. But in addition to the wireless carriers there are a lot of banks - and energy centers (my favorite being the Jiffy Lube Live)? What's up with that? I know Verizon makes more profit than probably, well, Apple and/or Big Oil, but is that what it is - only wireless companies have the money to throw away on something like this? Sure there's a few still named for people or for cities, but it's an odd trend, no?
