CHARLOTTE, N.C., Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A newly released report shows AT&T* wireless customers in Charlotte are enjoying the highest ranked local network.

An independent mobile research and testing organization today named AT&T's wireless network for top honors. Seattle-based RootMetrics® ranked AT&T highest for overall call, data and text network performance in Charlotte.

The RootMetrics® wireless network performance study for Charlotte named AT&T as the overall RootMetrics RootScore® Award winner for its combination of call, text and mobile Internet performance.** The RootMetrics award is based on analysis of 26,090 wireless test calls, texts and data transmissions conducted during July 2014.

"AT&T was ranked highest in our July 2014 tests of overall network performance in the Charlotte area. Our overall RootScore Award looks at data, call and text performance across all data network technologies, including 4G LTE. We look at performance from the consumer's point of view, and AT&T offered a very strong overall performance for those in Charlotte during our tests," said Bill Moore, president and CEO of RootMetrics.

"We are happy to see our network investment is paying off and our customers are getting top-ranked wireless performance," said Todd Lanham, AT&T's regional director of External Affairs. "There are more reasons than ever to choose AT&T. AT&T invested nearly $300 million in its Charlotte area wireless and wireline networks from 2011 through 2013, and we'll continue investing in order to give our customers great service."

AT&T launched 4G LTE** in Charlotte in November 2011.
