Unbeatable Reliability: ranking based on a shared win in the RootMetrics® UK RootScore® Report: H1 2021. Tested with smartphones on 4 national mobile networks across available network types. Experiences vary. Not an endorsement. Visit: vodafone.co.uk/network for the full report & www.rootmetrics.co.uk for more details.

According to RootMetrics, the key considerations to determine the reliability of a network include performance indicators across data, call, and text testing. The reliability category addresses the question: can I access the network (and stay connected once I access it)? These performance indicators include elements addressing the ability to complete a data-intensive upload or download task, complete a light data task such as email and app usage, make and maintain a call, and send and receive a text message.
