Some FACTS for customers looking elsewhere (or AT&T Fanboys)

by tether    Feb 29, 2012, 7:03 PM

Here are FACTS. Up for discussion, but not debate.

2/29/2012
Verizon LTE- in 196 Markets
AT&T LTE- in 28 Markets

Verizon Data Coverage-(Map clearly shows almost entire network is 3G or 4G, no need to zoom in but you can if you want to, lol)

AT&T Data Coverage-(Being the ETHICAL company they are, you have to click "data" then actually ZOOM in to see where exactly they have 4G, 3G and EDGE. You will clearly see a majority of their network is in fact EDGE or the slowest speed by far)

An AT&T Fanboy told me that AT&T has better smartphones. Don't know if he meant better selection or better actual phones but in either case;

Verizon current Smartphone Availability- 56
AT&T's current Smartphone Availability- 46

So Verizon has over 20% more Smartphones available. Don't know what makes AT&T Phones "better". Verizon's LTE Phones have Sim Cards now too? Verizon has more choices and some very high-end phones like AT&T.

Lastly with AT&T unlimited, as you all know from the article, you are capped at 2GB then throttled to a nearly unusable speed for $30 a month.

With Verizon unlimited at 3G you may experience "network optimization" where they might slow down your connection if you are in the top 5% AND the tower you are connected to is very busy. If not, no throttle or cap. With a 4G LTE Phone and unlimited data, no throttle, no cap for $30 a month.

You can still takeover a unlimited data grandfathered account with both AT&T and Verizon on Ebay.
