RootMetrics has just released its National RootScore Study, the most comprehensive mobile network test completed and published by a third-party tester to date, and named Verizon Wireless #1 in Overall Performance, as well as in the four sub-categories of Reliability, Data, Call and Text. Verizon Wireless was ranked a close second in the final sixth category of Speed, measuring just .2 points below the top score.
Here is an image depicting the Study results and showing that Verizon Wireless (RED) either won or tied (GRAY) for Overall Performance in 45 states.
What’s important about this study is that it confirms that Verizon Wireless operates the nation’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network in country. In fact, Verizon’s wireless network in 50 states is twice the geographic size of our nearest competitor. Building, operating and maintaining the most reliable wireless network in the U.S. requires a huge amount of capital investment – in 2013 alone, Verizon invested $9.4 billion in its wireless network – to be able to offer customers the reliability they want and need.
In the end, it’s important to remember that wireless service is about more than just speed. It’s about delivering a consistently reliable experience when and where customers want and need it. According to Melanie Ortel, Verizon Wireless spokesperson, “The most recent RootMetrics report confirms we are meeting and exceeding our throughput brand promise of 5 to 12 Mbps on the downlink and 2 to 5 Mbps on the uplink across our footprint, which covers more than 500 markets and 97 percent of the U.S. population.”
