According to RootMetrics, an independent mobile analytics firm, Verizon has ranked #1 in overall network performance for the past five testing periods when compared to the other three US wireless carriers: Sprint, T-mobile, and AT&T. Verizon came out on top with driving and indoor tests that were conducted in 50 states using off the shelf smartphones.
Scores are based on RootMetrics drive tests – and 6,607 indoor location tests – conducted across 232,000 miles in all 50 states, including 125 metro areas, from July through December 2015. The company evaluated all four U.S. wireless companies in six network performance categories: overall, reliability, speed, data, call, and text performance.
This latest report rated the Verizon Wireless network as first in five categories and tied for first in a sixth. In addition to overall network performance, Verizon was ranked highest for the fifth consecutive testing period in reliability, data and call performance. Verizon also won network speed performance for the fourth consecutive time, and shared a first-place ranking in text performance.
I’ve been a Verizon customer for several years now and find them to be the best carrier for my location (Southern Indiana). I continue to test T-mobile in my area, but so far Verizon keeps to beat them. Congrats Verizon.
