I could not help but chuckle when I read this little development. Terry sent me this article on DSL reports detailing the latest spat between AT&T & Verizon. It looks like AT&T does not like Verizon advertising as having "America’s Most Reliable 3G Network” and called them on it saying it was false advertising. So Verizon obviously decided to take the matter to court.
AT&T is trying to compare theoretical speed with reliability. Saying that reliable implies that it is the fastest which is what AT&T is claiming. Personally I have tried both and found that even a Verizon 8330 is usually faster on EVDO than my Bold on 3G in a practical speed test.
I am interested to see how this little fight will end! Hopefully it will result in AT&T rolling out better 3G service in NYC since this dropped call and data issue is getting old fast!
