Is T-Mobile saying that Verizon is going to the dogs in its new ad?1
We've seen T-Mobile go after Verizon in a series of ads that show why a Verizon customer might miss out because he/she doesn't have unlimited data. For example, a Nicki Minaj fan stops streaming her videos to spend some time with the Snapchat app because his Verizon plan limits his data usage. In another similar ad, singer Ariana Grande is tossed out of a car and is replaced by navigation app "Maps" after the driver receives a warning about her Verizon data usage while streaming Grande's songs.
In both ads, the idea is to compare Verizon's limited data plans with T-Mobile One, which offers unlimited data. And that brings us to the most recent spot in the series, one that hints that the nation's largest carrier has gone to the dogs. In this spot, two dogs are watching their smartphones (looks like some sort of doggie porn is being featured) when one of the canines receives a message that his Verizon data limit has been reached.
The two mutts guess that Verizon doesn't offer unlimited data like T-Mobile does because Verizon's LTE network is 6-years old (which is just conjecture on the part of the dogs. The age of Big Red's network doesn't preclude them from offering unlimited data). Another dog says, "That's like 100 in phone years." T-Mobile goes on to add that it now reaches 99% of the Americans that Verizon does.
