AT&T Sues Verizon Over Coverage Map
For several weeks, the Verizon Wireless commercial mocking AT&T for their coverage has caught my eye:
I thought at the time that there had to be something wrong with those maps. I could not believe that AT&T customers were that limited...
It turns out, AT&T agrees. They have filed a lawsuit, claiming that Verizon is misleading "consumers into believing that AT&T doesn't offer ANY wireless service in the vast majority of the country."
So, what the map really shows is 3G coverage, whatever that is. AT&T apparently offers less 3G coverage, but most of the country is covered for standard cell phone service.
Full disclosure: I am a Verizon Wireless customer, but sadly, I have not received any sort of considerations from them. Hey! I'm easy. For a significant discount on my cell phone service, I could become a shill for Verizon. Can you hear me now?
UPDATE 11/20: I see that AT&T has lost their battle...
