Interesting. My kids and I have iPhones with Verizon and get better connectivity than my wife’s AT&T, but the chart shows that the latter just keeps selling. My neighbor just got an iPhone but with AT&T. This oligopoly definitely keeps prices high.
will at&t help pay he cost to get me out from my contract with another carrier…..if i sign on for another two years?
