AT&T Mobility Ralph de la Vega recently said that its network in the New York City and San Francisco markets is "performing at levels below our standards." He noted, "This is going to get fixed. In both of those markets, I am very confident that you're going to see significant progress." de la Vega didn't say when.

...and everywhere in between

network woes in NYC and SF and "everywhere in between the two cities". Doesn't Vega's admission come too little too late? I can't stand AT&T. I was with them for way too long before jumping to Verizon and I haven't had an issue since. I just have to laugh my ass off when I see Luke Wilson make a fool of himself in those commercials because my 3G has always been faster and in more places with Verizon than AT&T, mainly because I COULD NEVER GET A 3G CONNECTION WITH ATT, and I live just south of Charlotte, travel along I-77 and I-95 throughout the entire Southeast US and everywhere I've been, AT&T sucks.

Many other markets have network problems.

Will you admit to that, AT&T?! No. You'll just keep trying to sue your way back to the top instead of INVESTING in your substandard network. Once my contract is up, I am gone.
Actually, AT&T invested about 78 billion to the network between purchases for tower locations and actually building the towers for some of the markets. I think 2010 actually has even more budgeted towards the network.

Their network in Houston is horrible. I guess other cities are way down the line. What a joke this company is. Can't wait for Verizon to get the Iphone.
