Verizon vs. AT&T at it again, this time with 4G

Will it ever stop? According to Verizon and their new display ad against AT&T it seems that it never will. Verizon and AT&T have been battling it out as the top two wireless carriers in the US, and because of that who would actually think that the carrier with 4G access first wouldn’t try to bash the other.

It looks like Verizon is taking low road here and calling out AT&T by saying:

Verizon now has 4G service. AT&T doesn’t.

For some reason though, they didn’t add the “nah-nah-nah, boo-boo” on the end of the quote. Regardless, Verizon is showing their map of 3G coverage now with small green dots in the places where 4G will be or is lit up in the US. The map is of course next to AT&T’s 3G map that shows how sparse the thing is in comparison.

It is good marketing for sure, but Verizon has to remember that they weren’t the first network to 4G, even if the 4G is all about marketing to Sprint and T-Mobile. They also need to remember that they have a long road of 4G roll-out to implement before 4G can even be considered “mainstream” or usable.

It’s good to know that Verizon’s network is going to get faster and more robust, especially when they have arguably the best Android line-up of all other carriers. Faster Androids are happier Androids.
