Dropped Call Research Shuns AT&T

gebraset - April 6, 2011 11:34AM in General News

Even though there has been a recent study released that shows Verizon Wireless dropping many emergency calls throughout the past year, there is now a new study showing AT&T to be the worst among all of the major carriers. The study conducted by ChangeWave was spread out over just 4,068 users across the United States and asked one simple question of dropped calls, which spanned over a total of ninety days from the start of 2011. The results are somewhat surprising with recent news, showing Verizon Wireless at a dropped call rate of 1.4 percent, with T-Mobile at 2.3 percent, Sprint and Nextel at 2.7 percent, and AT&T scoring the worst with a total of 4.6 percent. Obviously the number of participants in the study was relatively small, but the study just may be uncovering the tip of the iceberg in terms of nationwide coverage and reliability within the four major wireless carriers.
