Verizon named leading major carrier.
Consumer Reports has released its annual carrier ratings, which sees AT&T landing in last place for the second consecutive year.
Verizon Wireless, who earned marks on voice and data, was named the highest-rated major carrier, while Consumer Cellular took the top spot. AT&T, meanwhile, was only praised for its 4G LTE network -- the firm is investing billions in upgrading its wireless networks.
"While delivering an even better customer experience is a never-ending job, we're pleased that our customers rate their 4G experience as best of any carrier," a spokesperson told Cnet. "We've invested significantly to deliver unique advantages, including offering the nation's largest 4G network, which enables the fastest iPhone 5 downloads and simultaneous talk and surf."
The ranking of the seven carriers reviewed, from highest to lowest rating, is as follows:
- Consumer Cellular
- U.S. Cellular
- Credo Mobile
- Verizon Wireless
- T-Mobile USA
