Inauguration Cell Phone Use

The cell phone companies are getting ready for the Inauguration day by beefing up their networks -

Matt Richtel's write up quotes "Gene Kimmelman, vice president for international affairs for the Consumers Union, the nonprofit that publishes Consumer Reports" as saying
...people in Washington may not get seamless service, but they will invariably get a bill at the end of the month.“It’s like paying for an all-you-can-eat buffet and discovering there are only scraps left,”
I say Gene Kimmelman made a poor analogy, if you go to an all you can buffet when there are two million people there, if you are lucky, all that will be left is scraps.

Seriously, what sort of reasonable expectation of service do you have with a cell phone?
