After a US-wide mobile bandwidth test, PC Mag has some pretty plain results: Verizon’s LTE network socks the cud out of other carriers, often beating them by double across the board. Unless you live in a rural area.
Stacking Verizon up against AT&T, Cricket, MetroPCS, T-Mobile and Sprint’s 3G/4G networks, the former came out strongly ahead in every single tested region. In the open farmland, where 4G access is a distant dream, AT&T’s limp 3G service was the winner by default. Although as many will attest to, that’s often the case far away from rural America. [PC Mag]
