By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Telecommunications Weekly -- A newly released report shows AT&T* wireless customers in Indianapolis are enjoying the highest ranked local network. An independent mobile research and testing organization gave AT&T's overall wireless network top honors. Seattle-based RootMetrics® ranked AT&T highest for combined/overall voice, data and text network performance in Indianapolis.
The RootMetrics® wireless network performance study for Indianapolis named AT&T as the overall RootMetrics RootScore® Award winner for its combination of call, text and mobile Internet performance. The RootMetrics award is based on analysis of more than 27,175 wireless test calls, texts and data transmissions conducted during November, 2013.
"AT&T was ranked highest in our November, 2013 tests of overall network performance in the Indianapolis area. Our overall RootScore Award looks at call, data and text performance across all data network technologies, including 4G LTE. We look at performance from a consumer's point of view, and AT&T offered a very strong overall performance for those in Indianapolis during our tests," said Bill Moore, president and CEO of RootMetrics.
AT&T launched 4G LTE* * in Indianapolis in November, 2011. 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.
"Our customers depend on their wireless service to help manage their busy lives," said Brian Ducharme, AT&T vice president and general manager for the Great Lakes region, which includes Indiana. "They want service they can depend on as they travel in and around the Indianapolis area. We are happy to see our network investment is paying off and our customers are getting top-ranked wireless performance.
