This Verizon vs AT&T spat just keeps on getting better. We told you that AT&T is suing Verizon over their recent ads pointing at AT&T’s significantly smaller 3G footprint and sending their iPhone to the island of misfit toys. AT&T tried setting the record straight by saying they have unbelievable EDGE coverage where Verizon has EVDO… which is a lame argument. Though comparing coverage maps to service quality is not exactly the same I can attest to the fact that AT&T 3G service sucks even where they do have coverage in New York.
So now Verizon has responded to the lawsuit by effectively saying that AT&T can’t handle the truth of their smaller 3G coverage map.
AT&T did not file this lawsuit because Verizon’s "There’s A Map For That" advertisements are untrue; AT&T sued because Verizon’s ads are true and the truth hurts.
I can’t wait until the gloves truly come off. Though honestly I am glad that I am currently using a T-Mobile phone service on my 9700 since AT&T 3G service in NYC has been degrading over the past few months at an alarming rate.
Hopefully next we will get a cage match between the Verizon & AT&T CEO’s… Or the Grinch who stole AT&T’s iPhone…
