better from
your network.

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 we say better matters, we mean it.

Only Verizon ranks highest in three leading studies, in multiple tests, year after year. Can your network say that?

Verizon is #1 where it counts the most.

According to RootMetrics©, the largest independent third-party tester of wireless network performance, Verizon is #1 in speed, data, reliability and overall network performance in the U.S.

And after 3,851,608 tests, 239,941 miles driven, and 6,607 indoor locations tested, you can safely say they’ve done the research to prove it.

See the report

Verizon was ranked “Highest in Wireless Network Quality Performance across the Nation" for the third time in a row by J.D. Power.

When more than 40,000 wireless customers were surveyed in six regions across the country, Verizon Wireless ranked highest in all six regions.

Six out of six isn’t bad.

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.

Explore all the ways better matters

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 651,000 square miles.

Verizon's LTE network covers over 2.3 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.

Better coverage matters.

Other providers offer “almost the same amount” of 4G LTE coverage as Verizon, but Verizon LTE covers over 2.3 million square miles. Compare that to T-Mobile LTE, which only covers 1.3 million miles.

Verizon offers the best LTE coverage in America. Not “almost the best.” See the difference?

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.

We've got you covered
