AT&T responds to Verizon attack ads

In an unusual move, AT&T has issued an official response to Verizon’s recent attack ads, which led the iPhone carrier to file a lawsuit against Verizon last week. “As the U.S. market leader in wireless data service, we typically don’t respond to competitors’ advertising. However, some recent ads from Verizon are so blatantly false and misleading, that we want to set the record straight about AT&T’s wireless data coverage,” the response states. “AT&T’s wireless data coverage reaches 303 million people – or 97% of the U.S. population, where they live and work…. 233 million people or 75% of the population are covered by AT&T’s 3G network, the nation’s fastest. 301 million people or more than 96% of the population are covered by EDGE. AT&T is the #1 network for smartphones, with twice the number of smartphone customers than Verizon, our closest competitor.” The response goes on to note that AT&T smartphone customers—or more specifically, iPhone customers—have access to over 100,000 applications, are able to use both voice and data services simultaneously, and have access to “the nation’s fastest 3G network.”
