Verizon’s revenue is obtained from their wireless segment (80%), whereas AT&T’s wireless revenue accounts for 54% of the total revenue.

AT&T is said to be at the vanguard of service, in 2011 the company had an exclusivity contract with Apple and was able to sell IPhone and provide this phone to their customers only, conquering a large amount of customers over Verizon, thus giving AT&T a competitive advantage over Verizon. This situation changed soon enough, as Verizon also negotiated and obtained the contract to distribute and sell Apple smartphones despite the resistance of AT&T. Today, all wireless cell phone vendors offer and sell Apple smartphones and IPad to their customers. At some point in 2011 AT&T tried to acquire T-Mobile for 39 billion dollars, however, the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice opened a lawsuit to stop the merger, that would have made AT&T the largest wireless carrier of the United States with over 130 million users, the deal was disrupted over the opposition of many parties and competitors, including Sprint.
