AT&T vs. MCI – The Carphone Battle

As you all know, the battle between AT&T and Verizon is one that never seems to end.  In the latest iPhone commercial that aired during the Super Bowl, Verizon pokes fun at AT&T with the return of the all too familiar, “can you hear me now” slightly modified to, “yes… I can hear you now.”

This is a battle that has been going on for over 20 years.  After the break-up of the Bell System several baby-bells were born.  MCI a subsidiary of Verizon competed against AT&T for mobile supremacy as you can see in the following commercial from 1980.

Look and sound familiar?

Some things will never change 🙂
