Verizon vs. AT&T

So AT&T mobility workers might be going on strike at any moment.  If you’ve ever had to deal with any AT&T reps about iPhone issues, you know these aren’t very happy, well compensated folks (by and large).

The Communications Workers of America (CWA) union has voted, with a huge 85 percent yes vote, to authorize a strike for over 20,000 unionized AT&T Mobility employees. If union leaders do not come to terms with AT&T, the strike could begin as soon as today in 37 states where contracts are set to expire at 12:01 am tomorrow, February 8th.

On the other side of the fence, you have the Verizon crew, who seem a bit happier.  Anyone else wish that Verizon had accepted Apple’s initial offer to put the iPhone on their network?  OK, ok, we hate AT&T but know all mobile companies suck.


Poor Verizon.  Even with their superior network, they almost have to give away the poorly-rated Blackberry Storms ($99 at Amazon right now).
