In NYC and North Jersey our customers (and public) are invited to the #ItsOnVerizon Free Lunch celebrations Dec. 21

New York City and the Tri-State area is just one of the 106 metro locations across the country where RootMetrics® named Verizon #1 (wins & ties) in overall network performance. (Testing was conducted in 114 metro areas from July 1 – Dec. 20, 2016.)

We’ve got a lot to celebrate! Our network is winning BIG in cities coast-to-coast with the #1 overall ranking (wins & ties) 93% of the time in reports published since July. The other 3 wireless providers tested are not even close. Consider the tallies for the #1 network performance as rated by RootMetrics independent third-party testing:


And when we win, our customers win.

In NYC and North Jersey, we’re inviting our customers (and the public) to celebrate with us

For a jolly celebration we’ve teamed up with great food vendors at 6 locations in the five boroughs of NYC and northern New Jersey. It’s our way of sharing being rated the #1 Overall Network in NYC and the Tri-State Area!

RootMetrics’ tests will continue through year end and will eventually reach the top 125 metro markets. Their July-December 2016 results with metro, state and national awards will be announced in early 2017. Last time we also won BIG. In the 1H 2016 national RootScore report released earlier this year, Verizon was rated #1 nationally across all six network performance categories: overall, reliability, data, speed, call and text performance.

We expect even more celebrations in 2017! Because our New Year’s Resolution is not new, it’s to continue enhancing our network for our customers to get the best experience in the industry.

Rankings based on RootMetrics® 2H 2016 Metro Area (July 1 – Dec. 20, 2016) and National (1H 2016) RootScore Reports for mobile performance as tested on best available plans and devices on four mobile networks across all available network types.
