Verizon Calls Out AT&T on 4G Claims Through Twitter

Boxing Executives

I was really enjoying the Verizon/AT&T wars last year where they bashed each other on coverage. It seems like 4G claims may start that up again! I noticed that VerizonWireless pointed out an article by PC Magazines Sascha Segan titled “How AT&T Totally Flubbed 4G.” Verizon’s Twitter account chose this quote “AT&T is lying about 4G Shamelessly” from their Twitter account.

Verizon calls out ATT 4G

The PC Magazine article is an interesting take on the subject since nobody truly has a 4G network in the US. Still that has not stopped every carrier from calling a service on their network 4G. According to the standard there really is no 4G network though LTE and even WiMax are at least a new generation of technology.

What do you think? Is it time for carriers to prove their 4G network is actually worthy of the title or will it just be marketing speak?

  1. My 3.5G is better than your 4G..

    may take a few years for us to actually figure this one out across the country, once the networks are built out

  2. This is just getting ridiculous. the number of Gs has no bearing on speed…only protocol and versions.

  3. 4G is marketing bookaka. Same crap as megapixels and contrast ratio BS….

    Not to mention, even if the network exists at whatever speed, the rollout coverage currently blows…

  4. Exactly!

  5. THis is just another pissing match between the 2

  6. So I’m a go toe to toe, blow for blow like whoa! – Black Rob

    Lets see the get going!

  7. They can call it whatever they want, but they need a standard to be held to. Skip all the marketing BS and tell people the actual throughput speeds they can expect. Then we can make our own comparisons and decide which network we want.

  8. That’s just marketing strategy. Lots of carrier promise something wonderful which actually they can barely offer. Got to watchout for that kind of marketing tricks.

  9. Someone should file a class action suit against these liars and force then to remove any reference to 4G being avalable
