It’s December folks and both AT&T and Verizon must have already felt the Christmas spirit. Â AT&T decided to drop the lawsuit it filed against Verizon for putting up an add that misinform its customer about AT&T’s 3G coverage.
If you will recall, Verizon’s “There’s a Map for That” Â alluded that AT&T subscribers cannot access Internet services as compared to Verizon’s superior 3G network capability. This prompted AT&T to file a case against Verizon claiming that such ad was blatantly false and Â has caused irreparable harm to AT&T.Of course AT&T’s decision came one month after a judge denied their request to ask Verizon to pull out the ad. Â Although this is not really a sign of surrender on AT&T’s part, I’m pretty sure there must be a deeper reason as to why AT&T decided to drop the case. Probably, the Christmas spirit got into them as early as now.
In fact, Verizon has released a new ad, this time showing Santa “talking” to his reindeers about AT&T and Verizon’s network coverage.
Here’s hoping that both companies have a fruitful and gainful Christmas!
