Which Carrier Has Fewest Dropped Calls?

All major wireless carriers claiming to offer the fewest dropped calls, wireless management services provider used its vast database of Houston call data for a study. Using a sample of more than 80 million calls placed in the Houston area received between January 1, 2006 and June 30, 2006. They defined a dropped or "duplicate call" as a call from a cellular device to another wireless device or landline placed within two minutes of a prior call to the same destination, with no call between. Additionally, calls to self (voicemail) & Nextel push-to-talk calls were excluded., mindWireless ranked the carriers in the following order of % of dropped calls:

1 Sprint 5.4%
2 Cingular legacy AT&T) 5.7%
3 Verizon 8.0%
4 Cingular (legacy Cingular) 11.3%
5 T-Mobile 13.8%
6 Nextel 14.6%

    Previously Cingular prepaid is the best, but since it became AT&T I needed get out of my house, I got dead spot inside my house. I have been using my repaid for 3 years now, never had problem. Prepaid is using AT&T sites that sucks! I cant even get access from cingular but AT&T only, even though I use Cingular Prepaid. I can't refund my money!

  2. In Madison, WI
    AT & T coverage has degraded tremendously since the days of Cingular.
    The problem, is AT&T does not even recognize or aknowledge that they have a problem.
    I switched to Verizon and found a significant improvement.

  3. Love it!
