AT&T CEO Ralph de la Vega today noted that if the company's planned acquisition of T-Mobile fails, it will still be able to cover about 80% of the country with Long Term Evolution 4G. If it acquires T-Mobile, it will be able to cover 97% of the country with LTE. Answering questions at the AllThingsD conference, de la Vega said he believes the acquisition process will take about a year to be approved, despite the understandable objections for other industry players. He also said that he expects it to take two to three years before AT&T's LTE network is "indistinguishable" from Verizon's LTE network.

Oh Really AT&T?
Hmmmm... these numbers need an "*" next to them. 80%* of US. That looks better.
It's just a freaking excuse!
As a consumer, which is a bigger problem? That HSPA isn't fast enough, or that your carrier is taking advantage of our already-limited options by dictating which phones we can use on which plan, installing non-removable software you don't want, locking it to their service, signing exclusive deals to link specific phone models to their service, etc?
