Verizon Attacks AT&T, Apple in New Ad [Video]

Verizon has launched an offensive against AT&T and Apple in their latest video ad.

The ad mocks the iPhone "There's an app for that" ads with a slogan of their own, "There's a map for that".

"If you want to know why your 3G coverage works so well on Verizon Wireless? There's a map for that.

Or why you can watch video at 3G speeds almost everywhere? There's a map for that.

And if you wanna know why some people have spotty 3G coverage? There's a map for that too.

Yep, with 5x more 3G coverage than the nation's number two company, There's lots of reasons to switch to Verizon wireless."

MacDailyNews notes that, what Verizon offers is a 3G network that's larger, but slower; V-Cast videos (yuck); and crappy app-less phones that don't measure up to iPhone, so users barely use them to tax Verizon's network. It's easy to boast about network quality, when you have nothing stressing your network. We'd rather live through AT&T's growing pains, enjoy their largely hands-off approach (especially vs. the dictatorial device-limiting Verizon), and be able to keep our iPhones, thanks.

Microsoft should hire the marketing company that Verizon used!! This is geniuos, but I must say although Verizon's service is better, their phones are so bland and always a couple years behind. Plus they lock down their phones to prevent you from doing anything. So....I'll stick with my iphone and live with the shoddy occasional service.
