NYTimes: Verizon iPhone may actually benefit AT&T network

With rumors about a Verizon iPhone 4 making rounds for quite some time now, and there being speculations about the device going on sale in January next year, a NYTimes article has suggested that a Verizon iPhone could actually benefit the AT&T network.

According to the article, even though AT&T is presently upgrading its network, in an effort to increase customers' satisfaction with the network, users are still complaining about the carrier's long-standing problems - dropped calls and irksome reception. As such, most of the existing iPhone users are of the opinion that Apple's switch to Verizon may turn out to be an answer to all their problems.

NYTimes has noted that the shift of some iPhone subscribers from AT&T to Verizon will likely take off some of the stress from the AT&T network; thus implying that those who stick to AT&T will, hopefully, no longer experience the reception issues which they are currently plagued with.

As of now, Verizon customers are certainly more satisfied with their network, vis-a-vis the AT&T customers. However, the release of a Verizon iPhone by Apple may potentially have an adverse affect on their network, in case a large number of customers joined Verizon; thereby increasing the chances of dropped calls and reception problems.

Though it is being widely believed that the Verizon network is capable of handling the extra stress resulting from a potential iPhone release, how well the carrier actually manages it all can only be gauged after the much-rumored Verizon iPhone is released!
