Breaking: Consumers Say AT&T Sucks

This news is almost as shocking as the less-than-warm reception Lebron James got last week when he returned to Cleveland. In this year’s Consumer Reports reader survey, AT&T ranked worst among US carriers – by a wide margin.

Verizon Wireless was ranked as the nation’s top major carrier, though its score of 74 positions it in the No. 2 spot overall behind U.S. Cellular. Readers were asked to grade each carrier on several criteria including value, voice service quality, data service quality and customer support. The ratings were on a scale of “Worse” to “Better,” with three increments in between. AT&T received the lowest possible rating of “Worse” in eight out of nine categories, managing too eke out a next-to-lowest rating for SMS service quality.

Ouch. Their own results are embarrassing enough in their own right, but seeing Verizon finish at the top has got to be the perfect icing on that cake. I have to say, here in Austin my experience with AT&T has nearly always been good – but looking at big picture for the iPhone and iOS I certainly won’t be sad if the Verizon iPhone rumors come true next year.
