The iPhone 3G and 3GS will both be enabled with MMS on September 25th, but the road towards MMS has been long and winding, with many blaming AT&T’s shoddy network for the delay. Add that onto the already negative press that often surrounds AT&T’s handling of the iPhone, and you can imagine that AT&T’s PR team has probably been working a lotta overtime hours over the past few months.
To help explain the MMS delay, and perhaps restore some faith in Ma Bell, AT&T took to video blogging yesterday in the form of “Seth the Blogger” who explains how AT&T’s network operates, and lays out how AT&T has been spending Billions of dollars upgrading its network over the past few years.
The video itself is okay, and they might have been able to find a more engaging and livelier fellow than “Seth”, but the crux of the problem is that its taken AT&T this long to publicly address some longstanding issues and concerns iPhone users have had about AT&T’s network. For many iPhone users, the following video will probably be filed away under the title, “Far too little, and waay too late.”
