Well, you can see the ad here, and you can see that Paul Marcarelli, the guy that used to do the “can you hear me now” repetitive ad for Verizon has gone to Sprint.
The reason why the switch has happened is drive test date from Nielsen covering the top 106 metropolitan markets in the United States shows that Sprint’s reliability now beats T-Mobile and performs within 1 percent AT&T and Verizon. It is apparently a dramatic improvement over the last two years and gives Sprint customers a better experience than before when connecting and using their favorite mobile devices.
“I’ve watched with interest as each of the wireless carriers claims to be the most reliable or the fastest,” said Marcarelli. “But what I’ve found is…the ‘better’ that some other national carriers claim about reliability is really less than a 1% difference. Does anyone even really notice a difference of less than 1%? But when it comes to saving money…. Sprint is by far the best choice for consumers. You get a highly reliable network and save 50% off most of the rates other national wireless carriers charge. Now that is noticeable.”
