More J.D. Power hardware for Verizon, tops in network quality in 5 of 6 regions
While Verizon failed to finish first for network quality in the Northcentral region (Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin), the carrier still managed to score above the industry average and the three other national carriers that were also part of the study. Verizon says it has spent $70 billion on its network since the company started, and offers the largest 4G LTE network in the U.S. with its LTE signal covering 75% of the U.S. population.

Now begin the flamewars by various fanbois "proving" why their provider is best.

it's pretty hard to dispute Verizon's reign.

Bow down to the King. Always smart and informed posts.

I switched to Verizon in May of 2012.... after 12 years with Sprint (sprint sucks) I had to because Sprint sucks. I suffered for a long time with them until I got a phone that sucked with them and then the service just kept getting worse.

This is no surprise, even the iPhone performs better on Verizon. As I've recounted on several occasions, I gave Sprint another try on June 4, 2010, after a nine-year hiatus and what a debacle of Customer dis-Service that was; their 4G WiMAX was, of course, decent for mid-2010 but, in no way, compares to Verizon's 4G LTE. Now, as I've heard from many actual users, their network has become slow and throttled. AT&T is a complete and utter joke; like '911 in da' hood'. T-Mobile has a good network but, just can't get it's act together; and, having their version of Batgirl tracing U.S. highways and byways doesn't really accomplish much.
Anyway, congrats' Big Red you really deserve it.

I wish i had verizon, they truly do have the best coverage, but i am happy with at&t right now, they may not have as much coverage as verizon, but they make up for it with 4G and 4G LTE .

Their LTE coverage is severely lacking compared to Verizon's, and the "4G" coverage they tout, while faster than 3G, isn't on the same level as LTE. More like 3.5G lol.
