It's pretty obvious that AT&T doesn't care about its customers and that it can't scale to meet the growing demands of its iPhone customers. AT&T's U.S. network is completely saturated and over-sold.
Complaints about widespread AT&T outages at large events like Macworld Expo, WWDC, SXSW and concerts seem to have fallen on deaf ears. ComicCon is the latest example of how AT&T is truly a steaming heap of failure -- and competitors are starting to call them on it.
Upon hearing about AT&T's woeful lack of coverage at ComicCon Verizon blogger John Czwartacki tweeted:
http://twitpic.com/bvs3o - This what USA’s most reliable wireless network sends BEFORE a conference. #VDC
That TwitPic (pictured) is a giant Verizon truck parked outside the conference to bolster signal.
Getting any of this AT&T?
This weekend a friend left me a voicemail message at 3:30 pm on Saturday afternoon asking me if I wanted to hang out with him and some buddies that night. I got the message at 11:30 pm. Thanks AT&T. And that's not saying anything about AT&T's embarrassing lack of MMS and tethering.
How do you feel about the iPhone's carrier exclusivity with AT&T in the U.S.? Don't tell me, tell Apple.
