RootMetrics® Ranks Verizon Wireless as the Top Overall Performance for Houston


Each RootScore is calculated from a combination of weighted tests to reflect the impact a consumer would feel. Scores were based on RootMetrics tests performed between April 18-25, 2015, where the business ranked the top four US wireless service providers in six network performance categories: Overall, Reliability, Speed, Data, Call and Text.

RootMetrics has traveled over 3,856 miles across the Greater Houston area, as well as testing many indoor locations. The company said its study was designed to describe a typical consumer mobile network performance experience.

“What is most important is that our customers, especially in a city the size of Houston, have access to an always reliable wireless network when and where they want it ”, declared Krista bourne, President, Houston/ Gulf Coast Region – Verizon Wireless. “We have a clear competitive advantage with XLTE, and these most recent studies are further confirmation of our continued commitment to deliver on our brand promise to provide customers with the best network experience. “

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

In mid-2014, Verizon Wireless rolled out its latest XLTE network technology in Houston. XLTE uses Verizon’s Advanced Wireless Services (AWS) spectrum to double the capacity of the 4G LTE network. More capacity means more customers can send photos, download videos, surf the Internet, and more at top speeds on their smartphones, tablets, and other devices.

While improvements to the XLTE network are invisible to the customer, the mobile experience is not. XLTE-enabled devices automatically access 700 MHz spectrum and AWS spectrum in XLTE cities, such as Houston. XLTE adds capacity in neighborhoods or areas with high demand, especially during peak periods like rush hour, lunch hours in crowded areas or during events where mobile data usage is the highest.
