Mobile network reliability stats are secret?

MSNBC wrote a story and IP followed up with a discussion on the availibility of outage statistics for US mobile networks today. There are a couple of companies than enable enterprises to get their own data on the performance experienced by their own users, but hiding outage data influences the level of trust people have in the cell networks beyond the network's ability to deliver.

Brilliant, but unsafe marketing from what one would assume to be the mobile carriers attempting to drive fixed line replacement revenues.
