NEW YORK – Verizon was voted as the winner of the Best Wireless Service award in Global Traveler’s 13th annual GT Tested Reader Survey. Each year, Global Traveler asks frequent business and luxury travelers to name the best of the best in a variety of traveler-related categories, and Verizon took top wireless honors for the ninth time.

“Whether you’re on the road for business or pleasure, you want the security to know you’ve got the best wireless communications possible,” said Rob Miller, vice president of marketing for Verizon. “The road warriors who are the readers of Global Traveler know from real-life experience: Verizon provides clear value.”

With extensive international service across the world, including access to 4G data speeds in 88 countries, Verizon keeps its customers connected with a variety of affordable and flexible plans for all international travelers.

TravelPass allows customers to use their mobile device abroad just as they do at home. For just $2/day per line, customers can use their domestic talk, text and data allowances in Mexico and Canada and $10/day per line in more than 100 other countries worldwide. The new Verizon domestic plans with 12GB data or more offer free calling to, as well as while roaming in, Mexico and Canada. Verizon also offers attractive monthly international plans as well as pay-as-you-go pricing.

This year, more than 20,000 Global Traveler readers responded in the GT Tested Reader Survey awards. GT readers are frequent premium travelers averaging nine international and 13 domestic round-trip flights a year. Global Traveler’s readers spend an average 50 nights per year in hotels.
