AT&T pushes back at Verizon - lightly

AT&T pushes back at Verizon - lightly
You've probably seen those Verizon ads on TV by now, showing their 3G map in red and AT&T's 3G map in blue, saying that Verizon has 5X more 3G coverage. We knew AT&T didn't care for this, or for having their iPhone stranded on the Island of Misfit Toys, as they filed legal action for Verizon to alter and remove the ads and even released a Memo on the subject. Now AT&T has taken it a step further with a TV ad shown to compare the two providers. It features actor Luke Wilson saying that AT&T has "the nation's fastest 3G network, talk and surf at the same time, most poplar smartphones, and access to over 100,000 aps" all giving marks to AT&T, then lastly giving one mark to Verizon for "name that starts with the letter V". So what do you think of the new AT&T ad that looks like it was thrown together in under an hour? Maybe all the budget went to Luke Wilson that they couldn't afford better graphics? Let us know in the comment section below!
