Independent research firm RootMetrics awards top spot to AT&T in recent wireless network performance test HARTFORD, CT, MARCH 29, 2013 AT&T* wireless customers in Hartford, CT, are enjoying the network ranked highest for combined/overall voice, data and text performance by an independent mobile research and testing organization. Seattle-based RootMetrics today released a wireless network performance study for Hartford, naming AT&T the overall RootMetrics RootScore Award winner for its combination of call, text and mobile Internet performance. The RootMetrics award is based on analysis of more than 28,000 wireless test calls, texts and mobile Internet transmissions conducted during February and March, 2013. AT&T ranked highest in Hartford for overall network performance, according to our research conducted in February and March, 2013. We tested call, data and text performance across all networks in the Hartford area, including over 4G LTE networks. As a result, AT&T won the RootScore Award for overall performance in the area, said Bill Moore, RootMetrics President and CEO. AT&T launched 4G LTE** in Hartford in December, 2012, and it plans to expand its 4G LTE network to cover 300 million people nationwide by year-end 2014. Even as 4G LTE expands, customers can get 4G speeds outside of 4G LTE areas with our 4G HSPA+ technology. Our customers have told us theyve been amazed by the speeds and quality of our 4G LTE network, and the latest RootMetrics test backs that up, said Rodney Smith, president, AT&T Connecticut. There are more reasons than ever to choose AT&T. We invested more than $750 million in our state wireless and wireline networks from 2010 through 2012, and well continue investing in order to give our customers the best possible experience.
The testing period covering Hartford, CT, released on March 29, 2013, measured 28,206 call, data, and text tests of mobile service experience by RootMetrics. The Report is proprietary to RootMetrics.
