Verizon ranks tops in wireless coverage and reliability by RootMetrics


Verizon was named the “undisputed leader” for U.S. wireless coverage and network reliability for the second half of 2016 at the city, state and national levels, based on millions of field tests conducted by RootMetrics.

Verizon benefited from its LTE-Advanced service started in summer of 2016, which provided a significant boost to Verizon’s download speeds, RootMetrics said in a report released Thursday.

Separately, Verizon announced on Wednesday that it will deliver 5G wireless service to pilot customers in 11 cities by mid-2017. Those cities include Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Houston, Miami, Seattle and Washington.

RootMetrics said Verizon won for the second consecutive testing period across all six testing categories nationally for overall performance, network reliability, network speed, data performance, call performance and text performance. AT&T finished second in five of the six categories, except for finishing third behind Sprint in call performance.
