Just when I was starting to laugh at Verizon commercials again AT&T pulls this stunt. If you cannot refute them you sue them. As Stacy @ GigaOm said “We have a lawsuit for that.”
AT&T is mad at Verizon’s recent commercials that pit AT&T 3G against Verizon 3G on a coverage map. AT&T thinks that the map Verizon is using in that commercial might make customers think that there is no service at all in the white parts of the AT&T map while there truly is EDGE service.
AT&T wants Verizon to take the ad off the air and pay for losses AT&T might have experienced… If you can’t beat them sue them! You can catch some more of the gory details at Engadget.
