A Free Commercial Idea for Verizon

As I noted a few posts ago, AT&T sued Verizon saying that its absolutely accurate adds weren't understood by some people. The dumb people thought that the white area on a map in the ads meant that AT&T had NO service in the white areas of the map.

AT&T was denied a temporary restraining order today by the judge hearing its lawsuit against Verizon.

I think Verizon should take the high road in this and be very clear. Show the maps; but, in the white areas ( EDGE service which is slow: huge for AT&T, much smaller for Verizon) in big letters put SLOW service. Even dumb people will then know that AT&T has much more SLOW coverage than Verizon.
