iPhone – Verizon or AT&T: Reliability or 3G Speed
It's a battle between speed and reliability as Verizon and AT&T were put to the test using the good 'ol Speedtest.
Can’t decide if you’re going to be an AT&T or Verizon on your iPhone? Well maybe this might help you decide. In a recent test using Speedtest, AT&T proved to be the better provider as it gives twice the 3G speed than Verizon’s personal best. Though Verizon has vindicated itself as being the more reliable in terms of coverage, which the company has been emphasizing to everyone all this time.
The test was done on 43,000 AT&T iPhones running 106,000 tests and 14,000 Verizon iPhones on 49,000 tests across the United States. The results indicated that although AT&T provided the better speed, the network tends to be prone to disconnections, a problem that’s been around the provider eversince.
Verizon on the other hand never really emphasized their speed, instead they highlighted the ‘reliability’ of their network. This may be the reason why Apple considered the provider in carrying the iPhone.View Article Source »
