Verizon confident it can handle iPhone traffic

In a bit of carefully-worded marketing, Verizon Wireless CTO Tony Melone expressed confidence that the carrier's network could handle all of the mobile data traffic from Apple's iPhone--if rival AT&T Mobility were to lose its exclusivity over the smartphone next year. "We have put things in place already," Melone told BusinessWeek. "We are prepared to support that traffic." Without directly naming AT&T, or even openly addressing the prospect of Verizon nabbing the iPhone, Melone said that over the last 10 years Verizon has been consistently investing in its network more than any other carrier.
