The J.D. Power and Associates 2011 Wireless Network
Quality Performance Study measures consumers’ wireless network experience,
based on 10 criteria that impact a carrier’s performance.


Wireless phone subscribers surveyed were asked about
their experiences with dropped calls, static/interference, connection on first
try, immediate voice mail notification, message transmission failures and
mobile Web and e-mail connection errors. Call quality and data performance were
examined in six regions: Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Southeast, North Central,
Southwest and West.

customers, the solution lets first responders stay connected during an
emergency from the same phone they use every day without having to switch to a
different device, even when commercial wireless networks are out of service.
