Fantastic! Fight these clowns who refuse to invest in their network

Glad people are taking it to them! I would be pissed at any carrier that engages in all these data shenanigans with their customers. I love how somehow their bandwidth magically increases to unlimited when app makers would pay them some money or how the cap is set to 2GB just under that lofty 3GB plan for the same dollar amount or how anyone who did use a certain amount of data previously was obviously tethering and had their unlimited data automatically removed from their accounts and a tiered plan added. I used 13GB of VZW LTE data this month and my wife used 9GB with no problem, cap or throttle of any kind and at 15 to 20MB LTE speed. Vote with your wallets people (that actually want to use your advanced smartphone) and go to Verizon, S...

Fight these clown who refuse to invest in their network???

You are a moron. You should read more about the investments that AT&T is making before you stay stuipid crap like that.

I'm not saying all of AT&T's policys are prefect, but for 4 years in a row, AT&T has invested more capital into their network and andvancing it than any other carrier.

The caps are not going away. They are only coming on stronger. If your cell phone carrier still allows you to have an unlimited plan, and they aren't throttling your plan yet, you just haven't hit the inevitable yet.

The USA is one of the last ones offering unlimited by ANYONE anymore. If you look at Europe, the larger plan is 1GB on their 3G plans. It's coming, get over it. Move on.

I think you are the frickin idiot! Look at a nationwide coverage of both and you will see more than half of AT&Ts coverage map is horsesh!t EDGE while nearly all of Verizons is 3G/4G LTE and will shortly be 100% LTE. Doesnt Verizon have LTE in about 200 markets now compared to ATTs 25 or so? Where in the h@ll do you get that AT&T spends more on their network than Verizon, post a link to a credible source!! Why is it that AT&T and Verizon have the same amount of customers, have relatively the same rates, yet AT&T's profits are many times higher than VZW's and AT&T pays one of the highest dividends on Wall Street? Because AT&T cares about Wall Street and shareholders and Verizons cares about customers which long term benefits shareholders as...

You are so uninformed that its scary. You're like the FOX News of phones. More than half of at&t's covergae map is EDGE? Are you high? What are you smoking?

http://money.cnn.com/2012/01/09/technology/att_netwo ... »

at&t spent $20 billion on network enhancements in 2011 bringing a 25% improvement in dropped calls.

Verizon charges their customers more than at&t for their services as well, is running on an archeic CDMA netwrk, has very little international footprint and still lacks the simultaneous voice/data.

Your kinda like CNN then? One article saying AT&T doesnt suck quite as bad these days? OK? Let me post nationwide high-speed data coverage map of Verizon vs. AT&T and also post an LTE-only map. Verizon destroys AT&T the way Reagan destroyed Carter my man.

AT&T has LTE in 75 markets - but AT&T took a different angle at the 4G thing. When you fall off of LTE on Verizon, it drops you to CDMA 3G speeks...peak speeds of 1.5 MBPS...real world speeds of about 1 or less (my brother has Verizon...that is what he gets on a good day)

AT&T however has not just been investing in LTE, but also HSPA+...which is pretty fast also...I use it now. Their HSPA+ covers more people than Verizons LTE.

Verizon just kinda threw the network out there and because they aren't taking their time and doing it right, it's causing everything to crash. 5 outages since December is a lot and doesn't support their "most reliable network" slogan.

There are plenty of articles showing AT&T invests more money than any other ...

Not mad. Tired of hearing people complain about unlimited. Nothing is going to change.

Amen....if you're so upset over throttling at 2GB then just switch to the 3GB plan. Its unlimited at slow speeds vs limited at fast speeds you have a choice to make. There is an option. They're not just saying sorry, we're going to throttle your speed and you just have to deal with it. They're giving you an option to switch. At&t has some of the best smartphones and the best 4G (HSPA+/LTE) network at comperable prices.

That is so kind of AT&T giving that option to their customers they are screwing. Kind of like, do you want to drown or be shot? I guess facts seem to be optional here. Please, for the love of God, visit Verizon.com before you post here so you have the facts. Verizon had a VASTLY SUPERIOR LTE Network and a better smartphone selection as well, particularly LTE Phones. Comparing AT&T to Verizon is like comparing a Chevy Cobalt SS to a Lamborghini Aventador.

No. Sorry for commenting on your moronic claims. You right, AT&T is just FANTASTIC. They have LTE in 28 MARKETS TODAY 2/29/2012 and Verizon has it in 196 MARKETS TODAY 2/29/2012. These are there DATA COVERAGE MAPS TODAY 2/29/2012. If you want to keep living your delusion AT&T is somehow better that your thing but for all of us not in la-la land, here are FACTS.

Verizon Data Coverage-(Map clearly shows almost entire network is 3G or 4G, no need to zoom in)

As a former driver of a cobalt SS-SC, I resent that comment! I defy you to show me another Brand-New car that you can buy off the lot for less than 30 grand that comes with a 200+ HP forced induction, and sweet 18 inch perelli tires, not to mention Porsche recaro racing seats.

OK Tofuchong, lol. I do like your comments most of the time so my bad. Retract Cobalt SS and replace with Fiat 500 Abarth vs Lamborghini Aventador. I actually apologize to Chevy for comparing it to AT&T too. SORRY Big bow-tie!

Very Happy Thank you. Fiat 500 Abarth sounds about right, too.
