RootMetrics™ Ranks Verizon Wireless Tops For Network Performance In San Antonio, Texas

SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Verizon Wireless network has been recognized as a RootScore award winner in San Antonio, Texas.  For the second consecutive time, wireless testing company RootMetrics ranked Verizon first in Overall Performance in the San Antonio market.  Verizon also scored the top spot in the Reliability, Speed and Data Performance categories.

"Independent reports such as this further confirm our continued commitment in bringing the most reliable and fastest network to our customers," said Lee Maschmann, executive director of network for Central Texas, Verizon Wireless.  "The consistent reliability, performance and quality of our network provide a solid foundation for new technology and future innovation."

RootMetrics' RootScore Reports highlight data, call, text and overall performances of the major wireless carriers' networks in a specific geographical area.  To evaluate the networks in each specific market, a team of RootMetrics employees conducts tests during a seven-day period, covering all hours of the day and night.  Using current off-the-shelf smartphones available to the public at the time of testing, the evaluation focuses on popular consumer activities, including making phone calls, uploading and downloading files from the Internet, and sending and receiving texts in an effort to reflect the consumer experience in a specific geographical area.

Verizon Wireless' 4G LTE network, the nation's largest and most reliable one, covers more of the U.S. than any other wireless provider's 4G LTE network.  Verizon's nationwide XLTE coverage, which doubles the company's 4G LTE bandwidth and provides customers with greater peak speeds, was launched in the first half of the year.
