Consumer Reports ranks AT&T last among US carriers, Verizon first.
I was shocked, shocked I tell you, to find out that Consumer Reports ranked AT&T as the worst mobile carrier in the world. Like the baby in the TV commercials, this is my shocked face! I can remember the first ad wars between AT&T and Verizon, and AT&T trying to hide the fact that its network is inferior to Verizon. Hey, I have had my problems with Big Red: too expensive, customer service that can be arrogant, delayed upgrades, and so forth. But, in reliability and strength of network, where it really counts, there is no contest here. In fact, my skill at hacking and upgrading my phones can be traced directly to Verizon's foot dragging with updates. So, I guess you could say they did me a favor. Consumer Reports, you decide.
