Jacksonville’s WJXT Channel 4 news reporter Vic Micolucci recently investigated cell phone performance in the Northern Florida area. He enlisted the help of station viewers who volunteered to evaluate the largest cell phone carriers by traveling from Jacksonville to St. Augustine, and gave these networks a hands-on test of which provided the best reception and best download and upload speeds.

After the testing was complete, Micolucci stated, “The best performing of the four major carriers we found to be Verizon. We couldn’t find any major problems anywhere on the route.”

Micolucci also commented on RootMetrics’ recent findings in the Jacksonville area, stating that “its tests also found that Verizon was the most reliable and the fastest in north Florida.”
