Verizon’s wireless network dominated the competition in RootMetrics’ nationwide tests for the first half of 2016.
The testing service said Verizon won all six testing categories outright: overall performance, network reliability and network speed, as well as data, voice and call performance. No ties.
AT&T finished “a strong second,” according to RootMetrics’ report. It won second in five of the six categories. Sprint earned a second place finish in the call category.
Sprint finished third overall, still ahead of T-Mobile US in the four-carrier competition. As before, RootMetrics noted T-Mobile’s network performed well in metropolitan areas but not as well in rural markets.
Verizon, the largest carrier by customer counts, also won 41 statewide tests outright, no ties. No. 2 AT&T won two states outright, No. 3 T-Mobile tied for first in one state. Fourth-largest Sprint had no firsts in the statewide testing.
