AT&T vs. Verizon
AT&T and Verizon represent two of the biggest wireless service providers in the United States. Both companies provide a wide range of services and mobile phones. Each company has its own advantages to consider when choosing a provider. I will be evaluating AT&T and Verizon on three criteria. The first criteria will be on price.
