Other networks can promise you a lot, but only Verizon is consistently ranked highest in independent tests nationwide. That’s because our network was built to deliver, in more ways and in more places.See how a better network can make a better city

When customers feel the difference between our network and the competition, that's when better really matters.
Verizon has ranked #1 in network performance satisfaction for 33 consecutive quarters, based on analysis of the latest data from Nielsen.
That means for eight years running, customers have been happier with Verizon’s network performance.
Based on Verizon's analysis of Nielsen’s Mobile Insights survey data, which uses respondent's self-reported rating (1 to 10 scale) of network quality satisfaction with their carrier. The underlying source data is an estimate based on a national survey of 90,000 quarterly mobile phone users between Q1 2007 and Q4 2015.
Better speed matters.
Sprint’s “faster” LTE Plus network covers less than 10% of the area of Verizon’s LTE network, with a standard 4G LTE footprint of only 661,000 square miles.
Verizon’s LTE network covers over 2.4 million square miles. And Verizon delivers consistently fast speeds in more places than any other network, based on our analysis of Nielsen data. It’s fast when you need it to be, not just every now and then.
Sprint 4G LTE and LTE plus coverage as of April 2016. “Consistently fast” based on Verizon analysis of Nielson Top 100 market Drive Test results of upload and download speeds during Drive #3 2015.
Better coverage matters.
Other providers offer “almost the same amount” of 4G LTE coverage as Verizon, but Verizon LTE covers over 2.4 million square miles. Compare that to T-Mobile LTE, which only covers 1.4 million miles.
Verizon offers the best LTE coverage in America. Not “almost the best.” See the difference?
T-Mobile 4G LTE coverage as of April 2016.
Better reliability matters.
Verizon engineers work around the clock, checking and testing the performance of our network, to ensure that it's optimized across America. In a single day, they analyze over 1,000,000,000,000,000 bytes of data.
The bottom line is Verizon has the most reliable network in the U.S., and we’re relentless about getting even better. So why take a chance with anything less?
Better data matters.
Unlimited video streaming sounds nice when T-Mobile offers it. What's not so nice is when they downgrade your video stream to DVD quality.
Unlike the other networks, Verizon will never downgrade your data.
Better capacity matters.
In crowded areas, capacity can mean the difference between being able to watch a video, make a call, or not. That's why we added XLTE in over 466 cities across the U.S.
With Verizon, there's more room for your data, so you can call, text, stream, or share even when there's a big demand on the network.
Voice & non-4G LTE data service available outside 4G LTE coverage area.
