Verizon VS. AT&T #VZWA

We’ve all seen something similar to this….

It’s the never ending battle of the networks.  The question is, which one really reigns supreme.  I’ve been using my Samsung Galaxy S III on the Verizon network for the last three months while still using my current AT&T phone on their network.

One commercial/ad will claim to have better coverage and then when you turn the channel you hear the other company claiming to have better coverage…so which one reigned supreme.   Here are some things I found out while using them side by side:

  • Verizon did seem to have less dropped calls in major cities.  There is nothing worse than a dropped call in the middle of a conversation.
  • AT&T drops less calls when I am in my area (and other small areas).  Where I live it seemed AT&T outranked Verizon.  Now whether that was the network or the phone I can’t say.
  • Internet speed.  Verizon won this one hands down.  When I loaded certain apps and web pages (in chrome) side by side, Verizon loaded at a much faster speed.  It was seconds later for the AT&T network to load and sometimes it wouldn’t load at all.

So who really is the better carrier?   At certain times Verizon reigned supreme and other time it was AT&T although with the side by side app and internet usage Verizon edges out AT&T but is it enough to make this mom switch?  Guess you’ll have to watch for my wrap up post on Monday to find out, plus I’ll be sharing some of my favorite games on the Galaxy S III.

Until then make sure to check out the first four posts I did during this ambasadorship:

Which carrier do you think reigns supreme??

    You know, I don’t think I’ve ever been without service anywhere with my iphone. I always thought that the networks had to share their towers. LOL

    I’m definitely a Verizon girl!

    I’ve had both Verizon and ATT. Verizon rocks. The only reason I switched to ATT is because it took FOREVER for Verizon to get the iphone and I couldn’t wait. Now my unlimited data plan with ATT is just too awesome that I can’t switch back.

    ATT is the only carrier that provides a signal in our home…not down the street though. The joys of living in the sticks!

    I have been #TeamVerizon since before it was called Verizon. Hand-down they offer the best customer service of any company I do business with. They cost more but like the old saying goes, you get what you pay for!
