T-Mobile: Ignore That Last-Place Finish In A Nationwide Network Test

I've said it for years, and I stick by it but, the best thing about T-Mobile is the way it forces other companies to follow suit when it introduces industry changing standards. I can honestly say that, as an AT&T customer, if it wasn't for T-Mobile, I would have the roll-over data and other features that T-Mobile made popular. 

Verizon's mobile network has once again been named the best in the US by testing firm RootMetrics, and T-Mobile USA finished last among the four major wireless carriers. While Verizon Wireless bragged about its victory, T-Mobile claimed that the results are meaningless and that its network is the fastest in the US. The RootMetrics reports have been an ongoing problem for T-Mobile, which has repeatedly claimed that the results shouldn't be trusted.
