Are you sure? In my experience, the NITZ name may be received moments
after registration, so it would make sense to have an unsolicited
notification of it.
The NITZ notification does indeed arrive unsolicited. However, no AT
modem that I know of reports the received NITZ name. This is only
reported via COPS. The best you can do is call COPS again after the
driver reports ofono_netreg_time_notify.

Well, not with ISI modems it doesn't. Also, if we move PLMN name
handling over to oFono, how can you determine if the name reported by
COPS is indeed the NITZ name and as such should take precedence over
the core's PLMN name?
Hence the reason for my pointed questions. I'm a big proponent of
moving the PLMN database to the core, however this needs to work for
both ISI and AT modems.
