AT&T Wireless Network Ranked No. 1 in Dallas, Texas

Independent research firm RootMetrics awards top spot to AT&T in recent wireless network performance test

Dallas, Texas, February 19, 2013

AT&T* wireless customers in Dallas, are benefitting from a network ranked highest in the city by an independent research firm.

RootMetrics®, an independent research and testing organization based in Seattle, recently released a wireless network performance study for Dallas, naming AT&T the RootMetrics RootScore® Combined Award winner for its combination of call quality, text performance and mobile Internet speed.

The RootMetrics award is the result of 40,800 wireless test calls, texts and mobile Internet transmissions conducted during August 2012.

“AT&T ranked highest in Dallas for overall network performance, according to our research conducted in August 2012. We tested call, data and text performance across the Dallas area, including over AT&T’s 4G LTE network. As a result, AT&T won the RootScore Award for combined performance in the area,” said Bill Moore, RootMetrics CEO.

AT&T launched 4G LTE** in Dallas in September 2011, and it plans to expand its 4G LTE network to cover 300 million people by year-end 2014. Even as the company executes these plans, customers can get 4G speeds outside of 4G LTE areas with the 4G HSPA+ technology, unlike competitors, where smartphone customers fall back to slower 3G technologies when outside of LTE coverage.
