AT&T Ranks No. 1 In Winston-Salem, NC
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Aug. 19, 2013 - AT&T* wireless customers in Winston-Salem are enjoying the network ranked highest for combined/overall voice, data and text performance by an independent mobile research and testing organization.
Seattle-based RootMetrics today released a wireless network performance study for Winston-Salem, which names AT&T as the overall RootMetrics RootScore Award winner for its combination of call, text and data Internet performance.
The RootMetrics award is based on analysis of more than 16,560 wireless test calls, texts and data transmissions conducted during July, 2013.
"AT&T has the highest rank in Winston-Salem for overall network performance, according to our research conducted in July, 2013. We tested call, data and text performance across all networks in the Winston-Salem area, including over 4G LTE networks. As a result, AT&T is the RootScore Award winner for overall performance in the area," said Bill Moore, RootMetrics' President and CEO.
AT&T launched 4G LTE** in Winston-Salem in July 2012, and it plans to expand its 4G LTE network to cover 300 million people nationwide by year-end 2014. Even as 4G LTE expands, customers can get 4G speeds outside of 4G LTE areas with our 4G HSPA+ technology.
In the first half of 2013, AT&T invested more than $250 million in its wireless and wired networks in North Carolina.
"Our customers have told us they've been amazed by the speeds and quality of our 4G LTE network, and the latest RootMetrics test backs that up," said Jim Tarman, AT&T's regional director of External Affairs for Winston-Salem. "There are more reasons than ever to choose AT&T. AT&T invested more than $1.5 billion in its North Carolina wireless and wireline networks from 2010 through 2012, and we'll continue investing in order to give our customers the best possible experience."
The testing period covering Winston-Salem, NC, released on August 19, 2013, measured 16,562 call, data, and text tests of mobile service experience by RootMetrics. The Report is proprietary to RootMetrics.
