/EIN News/ -- DALLAS, June 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In the latest results from RootMetrics®, the nation’s most rigorous, independent scientific study, America’s most reliable wireless network is unbeaten in the majority of metro areas tested across the South Central U.S. including:

Alabama Louisiana Oklahoma
Mobile Baton Rouge Tulsa
Arizona   Texas
Phoenix Mississippi Dallas
Tucson Jackson El Paso
Arkansas Nevada McAllen
Little Rock Las Vegas San Antonio

These cities are among the 76 of 100 metro areas tested this year in which Verizon was unbeaten -- that’s better than 3 out of 4 cities tested.

Consistently Recognized By Many Independent Third Parties

It’s not just in the South Central area where you can find an unmatched experience. Nationwide, we are consistently recognized for providing a superior network experience by a wide range of independent third parties. Just this year, Verizon was ranked #1 in the nation for a record ninth time in a row by RootMetrics®*; received more awards than any other wireless provider in the J.D. Power Wireless Network Quality Performance Study** (20th time in a row); was recognized as best in streaming***; and in April was found to deliver the best real-world download speeds by Tutela, a widely installed network testing software, with over 250 million devices globally.****

What does this mean for you?

Having lots of awards from multiple independent testers is nice, but that’s not why we’ve built the nation’s best, most reliable wireless 4G LTE network, the largest in the country covering 2.5 million square miles. We’ve built it so you’ll be able to use your device when and how you want to. Whatever matters most to you – whether it’s streaming music or a movie, watching your favorite pro football team during preseason on Yahoo! Sports, sharing that perfect moment with your friends, or connecting with loved ones to make sure they are OK after extreme weather or other emergency – you can do it best with Verizon.

“Verizon engineers focus every day on exceeding the needs of our customers,” said Verizon’s South Central Market President Krista Bourne. “We’re at the forefront of technology that enables people to do what was once impossible but is now routine – no matter if that means managing a business from a smart phone, keeping in touch with family, using social media or gaming with friends around the world.” 

We are committed to delivering the best customer experience not just on our network, but on the plans you choose as well. Now you can mix and match different Verizon unlimited plans – all on the same, easy-to-manage account. Every person in your family gets the plan they need, without paying for things they don’t -- all on the network they deserve.

2018 promises even more exciting technology firsts for our customers, including our next generation 5G network. To learn more about some of those improvements and the work our engineers are doing, check out these videos on why we’re Best For a Good Reason.
