Verizon

About

Verizon is the largest mobile carrier in the U.S., and regularly touts its status as the “most reliable” carrier. Verizon is known for its relatively high prices, but since coming under pressure from T-Mobile’s lower prices has become competitive. Verizon also operates a small “Fios” home internet and TV division.
