AT&T Ranks No. 1 In Pittsburgh in Recent Wireless Performance Test


Yes I/We are in Pittsburgh so I have to post about this and also I’m an AT&T customer. RootMetrics recently ranked AT&T as #1 overall for its combination of call, text and mobile Internet performance. I’m not sure if that’s right or if they are that good, but I can get call in my home so that’s what counts to me. I tried two other carriers before and was rarely able to get phone calls in my house, but with AT&T I can so I’m sticking with them for now. I just wish they could give me a better discount on a new phone since I’ve been with them for so long, but no only NEW customers get the good discounts on phones… oh well..

A newly released report shows AT&T* wireless customers in Pittsburgh are enjoying the highest ranked local network. An independent mobile research and testing organization today named AT&T’s wireless network for top honors. Seattle-based RootMetrics ranked AT&T highest for overall – call, data and text – network performance in Pittsburgh.
