'Can you hear me now' is old news. Meet Verizon's new catchphrase.
Though already the owners of an advertising campaign that became a catchphrase – can you hear me now? – Verizon has decided to go after AT&T's.
The claim, that Verizon offers five times the 3G coverage as AT&T, is supported by red and blue coverage maps. Verizon's map shows a US overlaid with red coverage, with much of the South and Great Plains notably blanketed. AT&T's coverage is blue, and noticeably more threadbare. (Though after last election season, wouldn't blue have been a better choice for the home team?)
