Wow!! Everyone is laughing at AT&T because they are only launching their LTE network in 5 cities but once again people forget that when Verizon and Tmobile launched their LTE network, they started with 5 cities at a time! Start small, make sure the network is running properly and then expand!!

Verizon launched with 35 cities. All cities with football teams plus other major cities.

That map is embarrassing!!!
Why would they even make one. Ok Verizon why dont you just go ahead and get the new "i got a map for that" commercials. They might as well use the ATT CEO's quote about how far behind vzw they are (he said 2 years). Funny how people still defend them. Thats the reason why they still lag. BOHICA att users.

despite verizon's better 3g coverage, i'd still rather use ATT. I dont like using CDMA technology. i've had sprint for 8 years and dumped them for ATT. couldn't be happier about it.

Verizon was first into the game but At&t has been developing the technology just as long as Verizon has. Verizon wanted to be the first to roll it out so they were. At&t however, is going to Iron it out before releasing the technology. For example all LTE phones so far are plagued with the indoor problem of dropping to 3g. Verizon's 3g speeds are like At&t 's 2g speeds. Plus with HSPA+ as has been stated before if you don't LTE coverage the HSPA+ will still be quite fast. So At&t is doing it right but Verizon was first out. Why do you think that none of their dual core phones came out onto the LTE network til now? It's because the network couldn't handle it until now.
