The Nation’s Fastest Wireless Network is Also the Best, Again

GWS Recognizes AT&T as the ‘Nation’s Best Wireless Network’ for the Second Year in a Row

AT&T Leads in Key Categories -- Video, Reliability and Download Speed


AT&T’s wireless customers are continuing to connect to each other and their entertainment on the ‘Nation’s Best Wireless Network’ for the second consecutive year, with a clean sweep across every video metric – quality, freezing and time to first picture.

In Global Wireless Solutions (GWS) results released today, AT&T ranked the highest overall, as well as in the video, download speeds and reliability categories. GWS OneScore is based on the country’s largest drive test. Representing 94% of Americans, it includes results from 501 markets in all 50 states and some territories.

“Once again being recognized as the ‘Nation’s Best Wireless Network’ proves our focus on the full customer experience and our network investment is delivering results,” said Kelly King, executive vice president AT&T Mobility and Entertainment. “Additionally, sweeping every video metric is important as we look to the future of mobile streaming and expand services like AT&T TV today and HBO Max just on the horizon.”

Combine this network experience with AT&T’s industry leading entertainment included in our unlimited wireless plans and you have a winning combination for customers.

Today’s news also builds on our existing recognition as the Nation’s Fastest Wireless Network two quarters in a row based on Speedtest results by Ookla.1 These wins acknowledge that 5G Evolution, our first step to 5G, is creating great customer experiences in over 500 markets today. These enhancements are the result of billions of dollars of technology investments to bring our customers a great network experience. Moreover, these investments provide momentum for our planned rollout of 5G nationwide in the first half of 2020.
