I own an iPhone with AT&T for years and their service is garbage! I can't even get signal in my apartment, I'm just waiting to end my contract to make the switch. I had Verizon in the past I rarely experience drop calls or lost signal.

I live in miami and I have had at&t for almost 7 years and SERIOUSLY never EVER experienced a droped call. This is complete BULLSHIT. Service depends on the area of coverage.

Since this data is survey based, it's subject to bias. Because of the relative reputations of AT&T vs. Verizon, a Verizon customer is more likely to forgive a glitch as their own fault while an AT&T customer is more likely to go with what they've heard and assume all problems are the fault of the network. If analysts think this data is really important and worth publishing, they should buy some phones, put them in test mode and drive them around in the, say, top 20 markets.

I worked for AT&T for a year, trust me you don't need a study to see that they have more dropped calls then other companies. Just talk to anyone who is still with them
