INDIANAPOLIS, IN - The nation’s most rigorous, independent scientific study has recognized Verizon as unbeaten in Indianapolis for the 10th consecutive time in overall, speed and data performance. According to a new report from RootMetrics® by IHS Markit, Verizon was also undefeated in reliability—for the 11th time in a row. Indianapolis is among 38 of 39 cities tested since July in which Verizon was unbeaten – that’s better than 97% of the cities tested to date.

And it’s not just in Indianapolis (or New York, Boston, Chicago, Dallas or Washington DC) where you can find an unmatched experience. We are consistently recognized for providing a superior network experience in Indiana and nationwide by a wide range of independent third parties. Just this year, Verizon was ranked #1 in the nation for a record 10th time in a row by RootMetrics®*; ranked highest in network quality performance in the nation and received more awards than any other wireless provider in the J.D. Power Wireless Network Quality Performance Study** (21st time in a row); was recognized as best in streaming***; was found to deliver a better LTE experience than any other network in Indiana and across the U.S., according to the P3 US State Connectivity Report****and, in July, was recognized for delivering the fastest wireless network download speeds on average in Indiana according to Tutela's real-world download speed tests taken in July 2018.*****
