    AT&T Coverage Viewer

    to get the att map shown in commercial, click on the "mobile tv" link above the map on the att page.

    verizon is comparing their 3g voice+data coverage to att's mobile tv coverage, in effort to make att's coverage look terrible, when in actuality, they are for all intents and purposes, the same. not an att fanboy (does such a thing exist?). just pointing out misinformation. i'd do the same thing to att if they tried such a stunt.

    What you will notice on at&t's coverage is that if you zoom in even 1 zoom bar on their zoom function, it opens up their real 3g coverage area (which you have to enable). People seem to be misunderstanding the differences, because at&t wants people to think they are getting something much better then what they are.
    When I had my stint with the Iphone a little while back, AT&T listed my area as 3G. Not even close... So I don't trust any part of their map.

    Well they are saying the get on average between 3-6Mbps, which is not really close to true 4g speeds, but i would imagine they are the first to start the implementation of it's infrastructure to support. Even thought they say they have it.
    Resistance is futile.

    Which is funny because that IS the map they have for 3g... so ATT is **** out of luck on that one.

    Not only that, how many times do they say 3G coverage in it? Not voice coverage.. ATT is pissed because someone is showing them up and pointing out how ****ty their network is.

    agreed with New2. Verizon put the right map. Its not Verizon's fault that people don't understand that its the 3G map only.

    It's just like ATT putting up their voice coverage and telling people that is there real coverage for data, but it's not, i think their just PISSED that someone pointed it out.
