AT&T wants to set the record straight about its 3G wireless coverage.
The company has placed a statement on its Web site defending itself against critical advertisements Verizon Wireless has been running that highlight areas of the country where AT&T lacks 3G coverage.
“We typically don't respond to competitors' advertising,” AT&T said in its statement. “However, some recent ads from Verizon are so blatantly false and misleading that we want to set the record straight about AT&T's wireless-data coverage.”
Verizon's initial advertisement, which began airing on TV a couple of weeks ago, mocks Apple's “there's an app for that” slogan. Instead, Verizon's advertisement says “there's a map for that.”
Okay, so this is also just a test of the “press this” bookmarklet. The Verizon videos can be found on You Tube or click on the link. Even though they’re false, they are kind of funny. Kind of reminds me of what Apple did with the “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” ads.
