I'd like to see all the people now who said Verizon would crumble because they were in such bad debt.

Also keep in mind these are the same people that say AT&T/T-Mobile will reduce competition and cause a rise in costs.

However as VZW and AT&T have higher rates, people are willing to pay that for Coverage, Speed and Phone Selection. It is clear that having low cost plans T-Mo and Sprint doesn't do anything for subscriber growth. Just look at their most recent Quarter/Month End drop is subscribers.

@bobby lol u must be on crack! Sprints wimax 4G sukz balls even atts network is faster lol my boyfriend gets 5-6 mbps on his atrix, me I get 2-3 mbps the most on my evo 3d which I hate. Also another thing I hate bout sprint is that there wimax dnt penetrate buildings that well inside big buildings my evo 3d falls to 3g evdo whic is crap I dnt even get 1 mbp. While my boyfriend on att still has an h+icon and is getting 3-5 mbps in that same building. I hate sprint with a passion I think ima switch to att or maybe Verizon.

wow, i guess they dont teach grammar in schools. It is true that wimax isnt the speediest, however, it is the most reliable.

@dude how is wimax the most reliable when it keeps crapping out inside buildings? I had different 4g phones from sprint htc evo, evo 3d and that Samsung galaxy slide phone they have I forgot what its called but it runs on 4g. I admit speeds are not bad on sprints wimax over here in NY when ur outside. Cuz Inside many buildings including highrise building and regular buildings like Kmart and wal-mart I loose 4g and get 3g evdo which is freaking slow u dnt even get 1 mbps. How is that reliable? ? At&t at least holds a 3g hspa+ signal inside buildings and its waaay faster than sprints 3g evdo on att my gurlfrend constantly gets 4-7 mbps on her iPhone 4 inside those buildings I loose 4g on my evo 3d. So yea I think atts network is more reliable. Verizon is also good cuz Verizon at least maintains a 4g lte signal inside buildings unlike sprint.
