Verizon Response to ATT 3G Coverage Lawsuit

Verizon Response to ATT 3G Coverage Lawsuit

Published by earl
Verizon responds to AT&T's lawsuit over supposedly misleading claims about 3G coverage. Very funny: the response starts with "AT&T did not file this lawsuit because Verizon's "There's A Map For That" advertisements are untrue; AT&T sued because Verizon's ads are true and the truth hurts."
