Verizon Wireless earned top honors in Florida in a comprehensive study of wireless service by independent testing firm RootMetrics, said Mariano Legaz, Florida region president for Verizon Wireless. Verizon posted the highest ranking in the “Overall” category, and won or tied with AT&T for first in each of the sub-categories including Call, Data, Text, Reliability and Speed throughout the state.
The results in Florida were part of a RootMetrics national study of major wireless carriers, which showed Verizon winning the national Overall category and was the Overall winner in 46 out of 50 states. In the study, RootMetrics teams drove 218,000 miles in markets large and small, as well as testing inside 6,300 buildings. Test devices were running for more than 20,000 hours, logging millions of calls, texts, connections and other data points. More information on the study can be found at www.rootmetrics.com.
