Subject: austrian provider bob reports as roaming in its "own" network
Date: Wed, 5 Jan 2011 01:45:18 +0100
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: mobile-broadband-provider-info
Version: 20101106-1
Severity: normal

when connecting to the austrian mobile broadband provider bob's network
using network-manager, it always reports as roaming, and won't connect
at all if "roaming only" is enabled.

i assume this is due to bob being just a brand of the "A1/Telekom
Austria" provider, and bob thus using the A1 network. (the connection is
displayed to be roaming in the A1 network, although it's the
connection's home network.)

i guess that a bit of metadata could fix that; please let me know how to
determine the details.
