The Big Red has once again aced another recent study from RootMetrics. For those not in the know, RootMetrics happens to conduct a study once every six months in order to determine which mobile operators based in the United States have performed better than their rivals. Just like it always does, industry leader Verizon Wireless has emerged on top, with AT&T unexpectedly taking the number two spot.
RootMetrics conducted loads of field tests during the second half of last year, and then fashioned a list of the cities in the United States with the best mobile networks. Intriguingly, the two largest metros in America -- New York City and Los Angeles -- continue to fare less impressively than a number of smaller cities in terms of overall quality in cellular coverage. Home to some 18 million residents, the Big Apple is ranked just 66th in RootMetrics’ latest rankings, which included a total of 125 metropolitan areas across the country. As for Los Angeles (population of more than 12 million people), it ranked just 49th.
The biggest wireless carrier in the United States remains the best mobile operator in the country -- at least according to the latest report released by RootMetrics. The Big Red also managed to dominate all six categories, besting the other members of the Big Four of America, namely AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint.
RootMetrics has published the results of its latest round of wireless tests (for the first six months of 2016), and industry leader Verizon Wireless has come out on top in virtually every category. Apart from bagging the best overall performance title, the Big Red also managed to capture the best marks in terms of network reliability, connection speed, data, voice calling, and text messaging.
