Could Verizon cope with Apple iPhone after data outage

Well now, seems that the Big Red experience some problems with an outage, which resulted in an outage east of the Mississippi and lasted some 4 hours, after which Verizon made a statement that they had fixed the software issue.

The Big Red claim that the issue was with a bad switch software at a Verizon data centre that caused Verizon customers to experience no 3G network access of drastically low data speeds.

Well most carriers at some point experience outages, and I’m sure this one won’t be the last for America’s largest mobile network, but carrier outages do bring up the question of is a carrier coping with the huge data traffic, which bring us to another question…

If or presumably when the Big Red actually get the opportunity to offer the Apple iPhone, either this year, next year or whenever, the big question is could Verizon cope with the immense Apple iPhone data traffic after this data outage?

Or would the iconic iPhone simply stress Verizon’s network too much and cause even more outages? What do you think? Feel free to drop us your thoughts in a comment below.

    A great point to argue. How many millions of iPhones were purchased for AT&T’s network from the 2G to the 3GS?

    Verizon supposedly has the most reliable network. I can’t imgaine the influx of new Apple iPhone users on the Verizon network. I HOPE that Verizon is already considering this issue and creating more cell towers to improve coverage in 3G/4G areas to keep (more) customers happy. I think if the iPhone is released to Verizon it will create HUGE sales and Verizon will have no choice but to improve their software/data speeds.
