This is actually kind of funny, and it shows a great deal about society in general. For one thing if At&T had not have gotten the I-phone I doubt they would have the issues they have connection wise. This is largely because there subscriber amount has increased quite signifigantly for no other reason other than the I-Phone.
However; this also shows the general users knowledge of technology in some instances as well as there trend following predominance. Now of course the app availability on the I-phone is quite substantially greater than anyone else even Google. So there is more usability there in the unit. Now that the Droid is making some impact there and Verizon's existing Blackberry as well as general Cell customers some of this seems to be changing.
Either way I think it shows At&ts value as both a company as well as there ability to make decisions whether fast or slow. The reason I say that is it seems to me shortly after the second I-phones release and there continued growth from it there would have been a great push to expand there cellular networks capabilities. There has obviously been no great attempt to do this in any form until the second quarter of this year when they started to receive some backlash from it. This was well before Verizon started making fun of there actual network coverage.
Remember or realize Verizon started as part of At&t. So in many ways they know many of there weaknesses. I would think that's the worst opponent anyone would want in a fight. Never mind the fact that along with all the smaller cellular market players they have bought out they bought Alltel Mobile entirely from what I understand. That was a large cellular network to start with most likely somewhere near at least a third or a half of At&t's whole network.
