Verizon Wireless Earns Top RootMetrics® Ranking for Overall Network Performance in Kansas

Verizon Wireless was the overwhelming network performance leader in the rankings of four national wireless providers in the United States in the third National RootScore® Report, issued today by Seattle-based RootMetrics®.

Among the four major wireless carriers, Verizon won a third consecutive Overall RootScore award in the state of Kansas, and also earned top scores in Reliability, Speed and Data Performance for the third consecutive time in Kansas.

RootMetrics, an independent mobile analytics firm, drove thousands of miles throughout Kansas, as well as testing many indoor locations. The company said its national study was designed to portray the consumer mobile network performance experience at a national and state level, beyond their metro-specific reports. Each RootScore is calculated from a combination of tests that are weighted to reflect the impact that a consumer would experience. Scores were based on RootMetrics testing performed in the second half of 2014 (July-December). The company ranked the four major U.S. wireless providers in six network performance categories: Overall, Reliability, Speed, Data, Call and Text.

“These most recent studies are further confirmation of our continued commitment to deliver on our brand promise of providing customers with the best network experience,” said Brendan Fallis, president – Kansas/Missouri Region, Verizon Wireless. “The consistent reliability, quality and performance of our network provide a solid foundation for new technology and innovation that we will continue to deliver to our customers in the coming months and years ahead.”

Verizon operates the nation’s largest and most reliable 4G LTE network.

In Kansas, the company has rolled out its latest XLTE network technology in several markets. XLTE utilizes Verizon’s AWS (Advanced Wireless Services) spectrum to double 4G LTE network capacity.  Greater capacity means more customers at once can send photos, download videos, surf the internet and more at peak speeds on their smartphones, tablets and other devices.
