Get ready for some new ad campaigns with a bit of mud slinging and braggadocio. AT&T now owns the title of fastest 4G LTE network and the most reliable in the nation. That is, of course, the claims from independent third-party data hold up.
So who is it that says AT&T has the best 4G LTE experience in the country? Here’s the stuff that has Ma Bell thumping her chest today:
- PCWorld/TechHive recognized AT&T’s 4G LTE service as having faster average download and upload speeds than any of our competitors in its most recent 20-market speed tests — the second consecutive year that AT&T has ranked first overall. PCWorld/TechHive also ranked AT&T’s as the fastest combination of 3G and 4G services in the 20 cities it tested.
- PC Magazine named AT&T America’s fastest 4G LTE network in its 2013 Fastest Mobile Networks 30-market study — and also swept the top rankings in all six U.S. regions from coast to coast: Northeast, Southeast, North-Central, South-Central, Northwest and Southwest.
- RootMetrics® has awarded AT&T for strongest overall call, text, and data performance in multiple markets from January through June of this year.
We might expect AT&T to run some new commercials or print ads doing a little showboating. We might also expect other carriers to throw shade at them or try to poke holes in claims Of course they might also have their own surveys and studies to tout as well.
