If the conventional wisdom is that AT&T wireless blows, why is it
beating Verizon Wireless — supposedly the best carrier of them
all — in subscriber growth every quarter?
This chart may well summarize what has compelled Verizon to work out a deal with Apple for the iPhone. We know what Apple wants: additional market share without conceding any control over the platform. I suspect Verizon is finally willing to concede that control to Apple for a Verizon iPhone because their main goal is beating AT&T.
