RootMetrics Issues First-ever National RootScore® Report On Consumer Experience of Mobile Carrier Performance

Bellevue, Wash. (PRWEB) March 05, 2014

RootMetrics, an independent mobile analytics firm, announced today its National RootScore® Report, a first-of-its-kind, comprehensive report on consumer experience of mobile performance across the United States. While visiting all 50 states, RootMetrics drove nearly 220,000 miles, visited 6,300 indoor locations, and collected more than 4.6 million test samples. The new report provides a statistical characterization of nationwide mobile performance and is, quite simply, the most thorough mobile performance study ever undertaken.

Theres a staggering amount of marketing noise out there, making it very easy for consumers to get lost, said Bill Moore, CEO of RootMetrics. In such a confusing landscape, consumers are in need of clear, unbiased information. And, thats exactly what were providing with our RootScore Report program. We give depth and transparency to how consumers really experience networks to help people make the most informed decisions about their mobile services.

The national report provides a full breakdown of how each network performed across data, call, and text testing, as well as which network was the most reliable and which was fastest overall. The companys suite of National, State, Metro and Airport RootScore Reports provides the most holistic, nation-to-neighborhood view of mobile network performance available.


National Report Findings
Its a tight race between Verizon and AT&T, with the other two networks trailing by a wide margin. Verizon won the Overall Performance RootScore award, which includes reliability and speed assessments across call, data, and text testing. A good Overall RootScore means good overall coverage and a good consumer experience.

National RootScore overall performance rankings:
1 Verizon (RootScore: 89.7)
2 AT&T (RootScore: 86.2)
3 Sprint (RootScore: 68.2)
4 T-Mobile (RootScore: 64.3)

Good coverage is a combination of reliability and speed. To give consumers a view of these key coverage elements, each RootScore Report also includes a Reliability Index and a Speed index. Based on a combination of results from data, call, and text tests, the Reliability Index evaluates network access and consistency, while the Speed Index evaluates time to task completion across data and text results.

Across the U.S., Verizon ranked highest in network reliability, while AT&T edged ahead of Verizon in network speed.

Reliability Index rankings:
1 Verizon (Reliability Score: 89.8)
2 AT&T (Reliability Score: 84.9)
