AT&T Races to Tout Speed-Test Results

AT&T has some new ammunition to fire at anyone who casts aspersions on the speed and reliability of its wireless network. Nationwide testing by Global Wireless Solutions, covering more than 400 markets representing about 88 percent of the U.S. population, found AT&T’s average mobile broadband speeds to be tops–its unnamed “nearest competitor” averaging speeds that were 20 percent slower and its largest competitor (that would be Verizon) running 60 percent slower. The GWS tests also showed that 98.59 percent of voice calls connected over the AT&T network nationwide are completed without interruption–within one-tenth of one percentage point of the top score in that category.

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
