Verizon Responds to AT&T Suit, Calls It 'Meritless'

Today Verizon Wireless responded at length to AT&T's lawsuit and request for a temporary restraining order against Verizon that would prevent it from airing a series of commercials that attach AT&T's 3G network. In a 53-page filing, Verizon said, "AT&T's request for a TCO is meritless for several reasons." The reasons, according to Verizon, are that the facts regarding Verizon's 3G coverage compared to AT&T's 3G coverage are being accurately portrayed, and that AT&T has admitted this. "The stark truth, as revealed by the concededly accurate coverage maps in Verizon’s advertising, is that the geographic reach of AT&T’s 3G network is far less extensive than AT&T would have the public believe — and far less extensive than Verizon's 3G network. AT&T failed to invest adequately in the necessary infrastructure to expand its 3G coverage to support its growth in smartphone business, and the usefulness of its service to smartphone users has suffered accordingly. AT&T may not like the message that the ads send, but this Court should reject its efforts to silence the messenger."
