AT&T and Verizon Wireless Bury the Hatchet
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.

AT&T and Verizon
To bad they are not both GSM then they could join together and make the best network for everyone.
Yeah, it would be like Sprint absorbing Nextel...totally screwing themselves.
There's a magazine for that.
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
Both companies are a bit wiser now.
They're not gonna bury it in Sprint are they?
But the commercials will continue so
It's good that they're doing this...
