Did you know that AT&T has fewer customers and more spectrum than Verizon? Can you believe that shit? More spectrum, more revenue, fewer customers, far worse performance. Assholes.

Anyway, AT&T accidentally revealed yesterday, on the FCC website of all places, compelling evidence of the following which is spelled out for you by my man Karl Bode so if this gets you all fired up you may want to read the whole thing over at DSLReports. Hey, DSLReports, I used to use those guys all the time to determine just how shitty AT&T was performing before I bailed the hell out.

Regardless of the motivation behind rejecting 97% LTE deployment, the letter proves AT&T’s claim they need T-Mobile to improve LTE coverage from 80-97% simply isn’t true. That’s a huge problem for AT&T, since nearly every politician and non-profit that has voiced support for the merger did so based largely on this buildout promise. It’s also a problem when it comes to the DOJ review, since proof that AT&T could complete their LTE build for far less than the cost of this deal means the deal doesn’t meet the DOJ’s standard for merger-specific benefits.

  1. I don’t know. I have been an AT+T customer for atleast 16 years. When T-Mobile had the HD2 I considered switching.But the reviews and coverage map told me to stay put. A few months later I was able to get a Dell Streak on AT+T. All is well. A guy at work paid to get out of his AT+T early to go to T-Mobile for the HD2 (Broke it right away,insurance wouldn’t replace, added a line and got a Samsung S). He just paid to get out of T-Mob early to go to Sprint for Evo 3D. How long was that? Just over a year? He said service sucked and was paying too much. I am eager to hear what happens next with him. I am looking.forward to a merger, I don’t know why, just hoping for the best. Peace

  2. Screw all that. AT&T is horrible in too many ways to count. The same places I had great service at with Sprint I get crappy service with AT&T while being charged twice as much money.

    The fact that they are misleading and flat out lying about their reasons in such a ridiculous way tells you all you need to know about the leadership at AT&T.
