When using your phone for data tasks, you want both a reliable and a fast experience: you want to do what you want, when you want, as quickly as possible, without interruption or failure. We use our phones for a variety of data tasks. RootMetrics aims to find out which providers offered the best tested data performance across the country.

I'd like to congratulate AT&T for ranking first in a RootMetrics study looking at the data performance at the top fifty busiest airports across the U.S. Other data providers ranked in the study include Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint.

AT&T ranked first or tied for first at 36 of the fifty airports studied, including Utah's own Salt Lake City International Airport.

Categories AT&T came out on top in data performance include: email reliability, email service, upload and download speeds, and web or app performance.

In second place overall, Verizon ranked first in 19 of the airports involved in the RootMetrics study.

This is Lane Beattie for KSL News Radio.
