AT&T Demands Verizon Stop Airing "Misfit Toys", Other Attack Ads
Ho-ho-hold on a minute, Verizon -- AT&T's not finding much to laugh about in those new anti-AT&T iPhone "map for that" commercials that show a teensy, tiny blue GSM/HSPA 3G footprint compared the ginormous country painted CDMA/EVDO red. In fact, AT&T amending their original lawsuit to include those new misfit toys, Santa's workshop, and blue Christmas ads.
“Contrary to the image presented in the Verizon ads, our wireless network is pervasive,” said an AT&T spokesman. “It covers over 300 million people, or 97 percent of the U.S. population. Our fastest, or 3G, network covers approximately 233 million people, or 75 percent of the U.S. population….[Verizon's] use of white space is misleading.”
In other words, AT&T is saying Verizon's 3G coverage of mountains and lakes is impressive for the fish and eagles, but they think they have the humans and their "cities" covered just fine, thanks. (Though, again, NYC and SF might disagree...)
