AT&T: 4 Reasons Why We're Better Than Verizon

Starting with a, "We don't usually do this sort of thing, but here goes nothing," statement, AT&T defended its coverage, declaring that it reaches 97 percent of the U.S. population. The carrier continued on to explain that this coverage is divided up into three different types of technology: 3G, EDGE, and GPRS.

It's all good until AT&T starts explaining the difference between 3G and EDGE and claims that there isn't any. "The only difference – with some data applications, 3G is faster than EDGE," the company writes.

AT&T goes on to list several reasons why it has twice as many customers as Verizon:

Unlike Verizon, AT&T offers the most popular smartphones in the industry.

AT&T this week amended its lawsuit with Verizon, adding the company's "Misfit Toy" commercial to the list of complaints.

    AT&T must have an infinite amount of customers since it has twice the amount of customers as itself... Assuming that it has more than 0 customers that is.

    "AT&T goes on to list several reasons why it has twice as many customers as AT&T"

    May I conclude that AT&T has zero customers?

    AT&T is 100% fail here, they are relying on the iPhone for half their argument, which IS a great TOY, but not a great phone (Former owner). Eh, long live Android!

    1) Verizon has the popular smartphones too. HTC, DROID, BLACKBERRIES, WINDOWS MOBILE DEVICES. so.... where did that come from?

    2) Verizon has a app store too, it's nothing new. They have had a app store for quite a while now.

    3) Verizon has more 3G coverage. So... obviously it's more reliable. who would want to use around 56k speeds where AT&T does not support 3G?

    4) AT&T speeds goes up to about 1.7 while Verizon is 1.4 if I'm not mistaken. Yes it is faster. But what good is it if there is no 3G coverage to back it up? Same concept as the 3rd. Dreadful speeds where 3G isn't available.

    Researched for a long time. AT&T is just butt hurt with all their customers complaining about dropped calls, while it seems a lot of other carriers are picking up on now.
