When we say better matters, we mean it.

Only Verizon ranks highest in three leading studies, in multiple tests, year after year. Can your network say that?

Verizon wins six out of six national categories 7 times in a row.

According to RootMetrics, the largest independent third-party tester of wireless network performance, Verizon is still #1 in speed, data, call, text, reliability and overall network performance in the U.S.

And after 3,676,470 tests, 265,386 miles driven, 4,249 indoor locations tested, and 100% of the population covered, it's safe to say they've done the research to prove it.

See the report
#1 Overall Performance. #1 Network Reliability. #1 Network Speed. #1 Data Performance. #1 Call Performance. #1 Text Performance.

When customers feel the difference between our network and the competition, that's when better really matters.

Verizon has ranked #1 in network performance satisfaction for 35 consecutive quarters, based on analysis of the latest data from Nielsen.

That means for eight years running, customers have been happier with Verizon’s network performance.

PC Mag awards Verizon for the third year in a row.

A better network means faster uploads, faster downloads and less buffering.

PC Mag drove across the U.S. to test data speeds, and Verizon won in more cities and rural areas than any other carrier.

“The nation's largest wireless carrier had the fastest and most consistently broadband-like download speeds in testing, as well as some breathtaking peak speeds.” – PC Mag, 2016
