Vzw Fanman...how stupid can you be. First working for VzW, its been stated we are using their Mobile Tv coverage. Thats why we have an email about destroying all of the maps comparisons... Second VzW nolonger shows their true 3g map. We took it down back in 2008 because... our 3G coverage isn't as big as we claim. VzW uses its 1XRTT map whenever it talks about 3G and claims it to be there EVDO map.

And what you fail to realize is; It will take gayt&t 5 YRS to build their HSPA network. Don't forget they just upgraded their so called 3g network to handle MMS on the gayphone. ( 5 yrs later )..so when by the time gayt&t leapfrogs into LTE, Verizon Will be on 5G.

You have no clue. Please, I beg of thee, do some research. AT&T is in the process of doing major upgrades and updates now. It will be completed in 9 months or so. Another thing, do you know what leapfrog means? Obviously not fool. It means to transition swiftly into something. In this case all it takes are updates. For crying out loud, get it together. Your info is just as false as Verizon's.

Comercials like that demonstrate how soar VZW is, and they yet to recover of iphone huge success, no wonder they rushing LTE so they have a chance to compete with AT&T. Very interesting the big red can't stop people leaving their so called " Best Network " for a carrier that is very inferior.......jejejeje god lord let them have the iphone the fanboys need to get a life.......!!!!!!

wait, verizon can't stop people from leaving even though they have had the lowest disconnect rate and highest add on rate for the past um....... 2 years. The last time att beat them was the first quarter the iphone came out and that was it. Verizon has been ranked by jd power as having better customer service and better overall service. How is att better again?
