Verizon’s newest marketing spot is definitely taking some cheap shots at T-Mobile’s nonexistent LTE network. Verizon calls this a “focus group” which is probably better known as a group of low-paid actors but hey, I can’t say that for certain. Still, Verizon does have the nation’s largest LTE network, nobody is disputing that and they arguably have one of the best networks, period. Still, I can’t help but notice the absence of any mention of T-Mobile’s HSPA+ network, which isn’t LTE I grant you. However, HSPA+ 42Mbps is more than capable of putting up matching speeds against Verizon’s LTE and is certainly fast enough to not make you look longingly at any other carriers LTE network.
