AT&T’s 3G Performance: Better Than Verizon, Sprint & T-Mobile

By Jamie Pert - Feb 24, 2010

Many iPhone 3GS owners seem very unimpressed with AT&T’s 3G network, however a recent chart which has shown up on SlashGear seems to suggest that the network’s overall performance is better than its competitors.

The chart (seen here) compares AT&T with Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon in terms of download speed, upload speed and reliability across 13 different U.S. cities.

AT&T boast the fast download and upload speeds in Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, New Orleans, New York, Orlando, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose and Seattle.

They also offer the fastest upload speeds in Denver and Phoenix, however T-Mobile outdo them in terms of download speeds in both cities.

AT&T’s download speeds were on average 67 percent faster than the other three carriers, they also delivered a reliability of 94 percent, these results certainly question whether Verizon can still be regarded as the number one U.S. carrier.

Do these results change your opinion of a Verizon iPhone?
