When Apple unveiled their iPad last week many consumers were a little disappointed to hear that they were staying loyal to AT&T, therefore we thought that we would look at what the future holds for the iPhone 4G, the iPad, AT&T and Verizon.
The day after the iPad was unveiled AT&T began touting investments in its 3G HSPA network, “AT&T COO John Stankey said that the company was investing $2 billion in improving its wireless network in 2010”.
This will help pay for “2,000 new cell sites”, which will solidify AT&T’s network for both the iPhone 3GS and the Apple iPad, I wonder how it will affect Verizon if AT&T’s coverage and reliability becomes on a par with Verizon.
Verizon are looking to roll-out their 4G LTE network later this year, whereas AT&T’s LTE network is not scheduled until 2012, I wonder if improvements to AT&T’s 3G network will possibly hold off a 2010 Verizon iPhone 4G.
