After the Verizon ad attack against AT&T 3G footprint, I thought it would be interesting to find out what the four major carriers 3G coverage is by population.
- Verizon Wireless 284 million (source: mocoNews.net)
- AT&T Wireless 233 million (source: AT&T)
- T-Mobile USA UMTS/HSPA 200 million by the end of 2009 (source: Business Wire)
- Sprint EVDO Rev A/0 170 million (source: Sprint)
The Sprint number seems low but it came from their web site, and the reference to 2006 looks like this page has not been updated for a while. I guess that is par for the course for Sprint…
