    AT&T is much more diversified.

    Analysts have no idea about the best long-term strategy. All they care about is the next quarter.

      Also, AT&T has lots of international investment, they are a huge carrier in Mexico for instance.

    What exactly is the difference in buisness strategy? 70$ for phone service vs $71 for phone service?

    At least don't like ATT's advertising its LTE-A generation with the confusing name, 5G Evolution. Most people misunderstand it as 5G. Contrary, have not seen Sprint's ad about its real 5G service which is out there since May with 5G mobile phones unlike Verizon's fixed wireless 5G maybe because of the merger ongoing.. tragicomic.

      We hate the 5G Evolution name too.

      Remember when T-Mobile started calling HSPA+ 4G? Now, nobody cares. This is a very temporary situation.

    At&t is way bigger and matured than Verizon. Both want to identify themselves as media and tech company, not only as Telecom company. In that perspective, at&t is much ahead of Verizon.

      Specifically, AT&T's revenue is about 3x Verizon's.

    Both want to be TMT companies. I’d say AT&T is way ahead in that regard. Verizon went with going after AOL, Yahoo, and other digital media firms to create Oath, now Verizon media. AT&T went after DIRECTV to get Sunday Ticket and other licensing agreements for content before going after Time Warner itself. Frankly, I’d say Time Warner (now WarnerMedia) can bring in more media cred, original content, and revenue long-term than anything under Verizon Media’s portfolio.

      Also useful to remember that HBO is part of WarnerMedia

    You don’t think about business strategy so much unless you’re Director or above. For Assoc Director / Area Manager and below it’s more a personal economic question of what will result in the most money in your pocket at the end of the year.

    You provide 0 data supporting this claim. How exactly do investors want AT&T to become like Verizon.

    I mean they’re around the same price. Verizon is a little more but the reception is better in more areas. AT&T is selling ok T-Mobile quality service at a premium. I’ve worked for both companies and I had no problem telling customers this
