The coverage map war between Verizon Wireless and AT&T continues as Big Red deals a heavy, fourth-generation blow to AT&T's ... 3G network?
At first glance, Verizon Wireless wants you to think the unrivaled red footprint seen here is their 4G/LTE coverage map, but it's not, it's their current 3G coverage. Further inspection reveals their 4G launch markets -- indicated by small, green bullseyes, peppered throughout the map. Alternatively, AT&T's 3G coverage is indicated by small specks of blue scattered across the country.
Verizon Wireless has made AT&T their full-time whipping boy, but part of me wonders why T-Mobile and Sprint weren't included here. AT&T and Verizon Wireless are always battling to be No. 1, so it's obvious why they've targeted AT&T. But the other two members of the big four actually have 4G service up and running. T-Mobile claims to have the nation's largest 4G network, while Sprint is home to PC World's voted two best smartphones, and the nation's first 4G network.
