    Verizon Claims To Cover More Countries Than Actually Exist

    from Consumerist by Phil Villarreal


    [​IMG] Verizon likes to boast that its coverage is ubiquitous, but it's gone way overboard when it makes claims that it covers more than 220 countries, as it did in this ad the company sent to Justin, who writes:
    This one has been sitting around my office for quite a while - it is a scan of a Verizon advertisement that claims they have service in 220 countries. Thing is, the UN only recognizes 192, and the US State department recognizes 194.
    Where are those other 26 countries?
    Maybe Can You Hear Me Now Guy has tired of traveling the globe and has ventured to alien planets, having found this one is out of countries.

    That's really funny. You would think someone is fact checking these things.

    I guess this is like the time Barack Obama visited all 57 states.

    I'm thinking they counted places such as Puerto Rico, Scotland, Wales, as countries.
