There is a reason why Verizon is on the cutting edge of mobile innovation: we invest. We invest in spectrum. And we invest – heavily – in building out our 4G LTE network across the country.  Last year alone Verizon invested more than $10 billion in small cells, distributed antenna systems, and other improvements to our mobile network. We say it often, but it’s no less true: investment, not gimmicky marketing or regulatory gamesmanship, drives innovation and helps to meet consumer needs.

To that point, RootMetrics confirmed … for the fourth year in a row … what Verizon customers already know: Verizon’s 4G LTE network is the best. Period. As Verizon Wireless Chief Network Officer Nicola Palmer explained, the annual RootScore report “validates that our persistent focus on providing the best network translates into a real world, high-quality experience. People don’t want to have to guess if their service will work or not – they want to do what they want, when they want, wherever they want.
