Just a day before Verizon is expected to announce the CDMA iPhone on their platform, AT&T came out and attacked Verizon. They claimed that their (Verizon) 3G speeds are much slower than theirs (AT&T).
AT&T PR boss Larry Solomon said "The iPhone is built for speed, but that's not what you get with a CDMA phone. I'm not sure iPhone users are ready for life in the slow lane," according to businessinsider.com.
Just a day before the iPhone is expected to be announced on the Verizon network, AT&T launched the first attack. Last week, AT&T dropped their price of the iPhone 3GS from $99 to $49, a last ditch effort to secure as many new iPhone customers as possible before Verizon launches the CDMA iPhone.
AT&T was rated the worst carrier in the United States for a second year in a row, where Verizon placed second best carrier in the United States in 2010. Verizon also placed first in Wired.com's 3G speed test across the United States, where AT&T finished last in 2009.
Stay tuned for tomorrows announcement from Verizon, where we could see history in the making, where AT&T will finally lose their exclusive hold on the iPhone since it debuted in 2007.
