AT&T vs. Verizon Wireless: 4G-LTE coverage

By , Network World |  Mobile & Wireless, 4G wireless, AT&T

If ever there was a "phony war" in mobility, this is it.

The two carriers are locked in an advertising war over who has the "most 4G" coverage, implying that "most coverage" is or ought to be for consumers the critical reason to choose one carrier or the other.

Read Network World's other tech arguments.

The reason it's all phony: the vast majority of mobile subscribers, most of the time, use their cell phones mainly in one relatively small area around their home or possibly two areas, around home and work, and the route between them. Most of the time, a "mobile" user is one who moves within a relatively small area.

Even "mobile professionals" rarely travel extensively, frequently, and randomly all over the country or even over a large region.
