AT&T Sends Out Response To Verizon Ads

AT&T normally does not respond to advertising from competitors but in Verizon’s case they are making an exception. AT&T called Verizon’s ad “blatantly false and misleading” when talking about data coverage. AT&T pointed out the actual facts in a press release.

Some of the facts include:
– 233 million people, or 75% of the population in the U.S. is covered by AT&T’s 3G network
– 301 million people, or 96% of the population in the U.S. is covered by the EDGE network
– 303 million people is covered by AT&T’s GPRS network which covers talking, texting, and basic website access.

AT&T also decided to ruffle a few Verizon feathers by calling out the smartphone market. “Unlike Verizon, AT&T offers the most popular smartphones in the industry,” stated AT&T in the press release.

Verizon is doing to AT&T what Apple did to the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. Its about time AT&T fights back in order to convince their customers that the high price of having an iPhone is worth it.
