I guess AT&T has had enough of Verizon poking fun of them with their ads recently. They posted the following press release on their site today. Not pulling any punches they address all the points hinted at from Verizon’s ad campaign.
“AT&T’s wireless data coverage reaches 303 million people – or 97% of the U.S. population, where they live and work.
AT&T is the #1 network for smartphones, with twice the number of smartphone customers than Verizon, our closest competitor. Some of the reasons include:
Most popular smartphones. Unlike Verizon, AT&T offers the most popular smartphones in the industry.
More wireless apps. Unlike Verizon, AT&T customers have access to more than 100,000 applications, more than with any other wireless company.
Talk and E-mail at the same time. Unlike Verizon, AT&T’s 3G network lets wireless customers simultaneously talk and surf the web or do e-mail.
Fastest 3G in the nation. Unlike Verizon, AT&T has the nation’s fastest 3G network.”
Fight! Fight! Fight!
Does this mean tethering for the iPhone is postponed until the dust settles…?
