This quarter, science will help us decide. And by science we mean a Verizon vs AT&T face-off in six categories – see the graphic below – from quarterly results to the level of ineptitude and BS displayed on the earnings call.
John Legere will announce his winner on social media after Verizon’s earnings on Thursday.
Update – The Results Are In – Verizon Crowned Dumber Champion
AT&T and Verizon are getting credit in the media for their quarterly results but c’mon people, they’re still getting whooped on by the Un-carrier!
AT&T lost phone customers and service revenue AGAIN. That’s not a good quarter. It’s just not the holy-trainwreck-abomination-of-a-quarter we’ve all gotten accustomed to with the Evil Empire. So kudos to AT&T for only being awful and not gawd awful.
Verizon on the other hand is exactly who we thought they were. 14th straight quarter with fewer postpaid phone adds than T-Mobile. Big service revenue loss. More tired “best network” comments based on the results from a single company that Verizon pays truckloads of money to and not a single mention of Go90 on the earnings call.
And so it is that we name Verizon our Q2 2017 Dumber Champion!
