US carrier launches first attack against new competitor.

AT&T may soon loose its exclusive hold on the iPhone, and it seems they have taken Apple’s decision to branch out a little too at heart. AT&T has claimed that users who will opt for the Verizon iPhone will have to put with slow speeds and poor service.

AT&T PR boss Larry Solomon said “The iPhone is built for speed, but that’s not what you get with a CDMA phone. I’m not sure iPhone users are ready for life in the slow lane,” according to

That’s a rather bold thing to say, specially since AT&T were rated as the worst carrier in the US for a second year in a row, where as Verizon placed second as the best carrier US in 2010. More so, Verizon had placed first in’s 3G speed test across the country, where as AT&T finished last in 2009.

Verizon is expected to announced the iPhone tie up tomorrow. It would be interesting to note what the carrier has to offer against AT&T.
