Re: Verizon IoT
I've stuck with them because I obviously need to be tethered everywhere for work, and I've found their coverage and the consistency of the connection really is the best of the four. I'm not a big fan of their lagged device upgrades and neutrality policies, but the network really does work well. Again though, not sure that's enough to allow them to refuse to seriously compete on price permanently. Outside of their double your data promo, most of their promotions are cosmetic in nature...

Re: Verizon IoT
I totally agree with silmming down some of these cable bundles. They are just too big for people right now, and too expensive.

Cable comapnies are going to need to give customers exactly what they want and nothing more. That's just how the industry is going to shape up to be.

Re: Verizon IoT
I agree. AT&T has already appropriated that title as well in some of its past marketing. Anecdotally, I still hear from lots of people that Verizon is the best. They state it as a fact like everyone knows they have the best coverage or fastest speeds, so it must have some truth to it -- or else the marketing is working. I'm even thinking of switching to Verizon from AT&T soon...

Re: Verizon IoT
Kind of just code for "we refuse to compete on price until the numbers get so bad that we actually have to compete on price." I think the claim their network offers superior performance holds merit, but I just don't think they can ride that claim indefinitely, especially should T-Mobile and Sprint make notable network strides.

Verizon IoT
Shammo has said in the past that Verizon's not too concerned about losing those lower-ARPU subscribers (probably to T-Mobile), but had to focus more on how it will make up for them this quarter.

It hasn't been as vocal about IoT as AT&T, aside from the connected car, but it did grow its IoT and telematics segment by 25% this quarter over last year, so it's likely to help out going forward, in addition to its OTT video offers.
