Verizon's mockery of Apple's iPhone, and its App Store. With 90,000 apps? Then there's AT&T with their national 3G coverage. Which to Verizon's claim, is 1/5 of their network. What do you think?
Doesn't look like Sprint is doing too well in 3G, look at dark orange below. Maybe slightly better than AT&T, but don't forget that most of the Midwest that is dark orange isn't even Sprint's network, it is affiliates networks.
So if the Verizon map holds true, the king would be Verizon with AT&T and Sprint tied for 2nd.
You also have to keep in mind that the [articular map that Verizon is using is their overall coverage map for voice and messaging. Which means it only requires 1xRTT to function.
Here's a link to Verizon's maps
The default is the red only which is just the voice and messaging. For boradband coverage you have to click on "Broadband and V Cast". In addition Verizon doesn't use the term roaming, they use "extended network". But they don't make that distinction on their regular voice and messaging coverage map, just the broadband one. They are inconsistent with showing the coverage and whether it is native or not.
Hey, Sprint Employee. Let's try and retain a civil conversation please. The worthless Mobile TV service means nothing. It's overpriced, and grainy. We have the Palm Prē, which is about to get Adobe Flash support. All the TV we want is on hulu.com, on America's Fastest, (Sprint/2.0Mbps vs. AT&T/1.4Mbps) most reliable/dependable network. (according to me, in the Seattle Area.) P.S. - Verizon is the worst up here. My uncle gets as many dropped calls as I do on AT&T.)
Can you explain what the colors mean? Blue is well, obviously Verizon, but, who is the yellow and green?
I think Verizon's map describes it quite easily:
Extended Broadband & V CAST (again apply the same term as below for roaming "Extended")
The Extended Enhanced Services Coverage Areas include networks run by other carriers (Non-Broadband Coverage)
Enhanced Services (Non-Broadband Coverage)
I'm just finding this funny. Take a look at the Verizon coverage map for Mobile TV coverage.
From a Verizon PDF comparing 3G service:
As for any Mobile TV service, I found Sprint's to be stupid, keep TV where it belongs (on a TV). Sprint's is just stupid video clips. I have no clue what Verizon's is, but it can't be worse.
