I think we can all recognize some valid points in your post. However, ATT spending billions to REPAIR their network, is far more accurate. They are scavengers of rhetoric and insufficient handling of subscriber's interests. They have had the acquired spectrum holdings and financial means to have brought their outdated network up to par years ago. They chose not to.
Three years ago they admitted a problem with their network. They addressed the issue and promised the consumers and media a remedy.
Unfortunately, they didn't say it would be on their time schedule. They wanted to wait until their exclusivity on the iPhone was terminated.
I don't mind a company making money if the rewards of significant returns to the subscriber's end user experience is the best it can be. ATT has a long history of not recognizing this basic principle. It has continued to purchase live stock to cast a perceptual view that because they are a large farm, their products are top notch.
However, I consider the story to be more recognized as a Goofus and Gallant teaching of etiquette.
Gallant(VZW) spends money wisely to preclude customer satisfaction by investing heavily in consistant network upgrades and allow a better user experience.
Goofus(AT&T) hoards their subscriber's dollars every month and then cries a river of false need to validate their policy changes or to spend 39 billion to eliminate competition rather than upgrade thier network just so they can continue this trend.
