AT&T's 3G coverage? Certainly their advertising is the most misleading in the marketplace today...97% coverage is not 3G coverage.
Let's go to the AT&T website, because the information is there.
Note according to the legend this is not 3G coverage, but is their National GSM Coverage.
Now let's dig up their 3G coverage map...
Here's the trick they are using to hide how truly bad their 3G coverage really is, first zoom in on any location on the orange map.
Now click the checkmark box for "3G/Mobile Broadband Coverage"
to see what their 3G coverage is. It will show up in blue. (Note this checkmark box wasn't there in the first place, until you zoom in on the map.)
Zoom back out but not all the way. Viola! AT&T's 3G nationwide coverage in blue. If you do zoom out all the way, the map will turn orange again and you'll lose the actual 3G coverage map.
AT&T is a service you can live without.
