"Verizon. It's an old persons's Nightmare." That is how the SNL Verizon Ad ends that was part of the sketch line-up on Saturday. Bill Hader plays a Verizon sales person explaining a customer what 4GLTE will do for him. The result is pretty funny, but also not far from reality. The 4G moniker is totally diluted at this point and it is even for geeks hard to keep track of what each carrier is marketing as 4G. Is it just 3G+ or is it indeed LTE. Is it though full LTE and how large is the coverage?
Anyway. Watch the Verizon Ad below.
For Verizon, the SNL skid is actually great free advertising.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
