Today AT&T and Verizon Wireless said that they have canceled two separate pieces of litigation between the two companies. AT&T has dropped its lawsuit against Verizon (filed in Georgia) over the "Map for That" ad campaign. The campaign compared AT&T and Verizon's 3G coverage maps in television commercials and print advertisements. AT&T said the ads were misleading, though a judge ruled that they were "sneaky", but not misleading. In response, Verizon has dropped a lawsuit it filed against AT&T in July 2009 seeking to declare Verizon's "Most Dependable Network: claims were true. AT&T had objected to that lawsuit with one of its own at the time. All the lawsuits have been dropped.

Four words....

Recent. Consumer. Reports. Issue.

There's a magazine for that.
Bingo!

I wonder if the agreement included VZW not using this data in their commercials. That alone would be much more effective than any of their other campaigns.

ATT getting smarter? haha

why continue to waste money and resources on the lawsuit when you know you cant win!
It wasn't just AT&T that dropped their lawsuit. Verizon dropped theirs that had been going on for longer.

Both companies are a bit wiser now.

This is good to see. The Luke Wilson commercials were a better response than the lawsuit.

i still wanna see

a commercial from verizon in a phychologist room with the wife who has verizon complain to the doctor how the husband who has att never listens to him on the phone because he is surfing while on the conversation and barely talks cause he doesnt have 3g (with a clip of the slow loading website, insisting hes waiting for the webpage more then interested in the conversation). psychologist sez, "wow thats serious, luckily theres a map for that. im writing your husband a prescription for verizon wireless with the nations 3g network and most reliable voice calling that focuses the conversation on you. then shows the couple having a mutual relationship again talking to eachother. then whatever else verizon adds...
