It was only a matter of time before AT&T got their feelings hurt and decided to sue Verizon for their "there's a map for that" comparison advertisements, seen all over television as of late due to the upcoming launch of the Motorola Droid.
Here's the real kicker: according to AT&T, Verizon is misleading the public by comparing the two 3G coverage areas. Instead, AT&T proposes that Verizon includes their EDGE coverage. Not quite sure how the nation's second largest wireless carrier justifies that request, as EDGE most definitely isn't 3G (and shouldn't be compared as such), but since it covers 1.75 million square miles, it would fill in their blue map shown in the picture above (thus making it more visually appealing to customers watching at home, pondering a switch to Big Red).
Instead of trying to sue Verizon for a claim that is largely true, I'm thinking that continuing the investment in 7.2 Mbps HSPA is a better way to spend money. What's more, it will quell complaints about coverage, thus killing two birds with one stone. What do you think?
