Consumer Reports ranks AT&T America's worst carrier
Consumer Reports today named AT&T as the worst U.S. mobile service provider, but said its reader survey puts Apple's iPhone, which only uses AT&T, in a tie for first place with a trio of Samsung smartphones running Android.
The magazine's annual survey of over 58,000 subscribers ranked AT&T in last place -- as it was this time last year -- but showed that its overall score dropped significantly, widening the margin between it and the next-best carrier.
"AT&T was the only carrier with scores that dropped significantly in our satisfaction survey," said Consumer Reports in its ratings report. "AT&T is now positioned in last place overall and in almost every market we rate."
