A lot of you seem to think Verizon is the worst among our major competitors and I don't see it. Please, tell me what is it that they're doing better than us? If you can give me concrete examples I'll be happy to say I was wrong about this, but something tells me that you can't because there are none.

What are our competitors doing better than us?
They eliminate the small print, when they (T mobile) gives you a price that IS the price.
Unlike Verizon that says a Price and then adds fees and taxes on top of the advertised price.
Edison claims it’s a network company, maybe telecommunications, possibly technology, or maybe just internet. In the 8 years I worked for them they wasted money on buying the c grade companies like BlueJeans, yahoo, and other wasted endeavors. They have no identity as a company, share how proud they are of underpaying, and offer the lowest benefits.
The only think vz drfinately does better is the rah rah up to speed. I hope for their same other companies have escaped that.

You are clearly one of those "who do not know, what they don't even don't know."
This is why the company has troubles: poor leadership because of a lack of focus or clear direction, with few realistic achievable goals and measurements of success. When that happens everybody tells little fibs that turn into major failures.
Hans may have finally united all of the various LOBs and piece parts into one dysfunctional company, but he broke the company and its focus and ethos in the profess.
Americans will never be Europeans nor Asian nor Canadian no matter how hard you try. And it is our customers wants and needs that the 'leadership' needs to find and fill, not lead some social justice warrior campaign.
Ah, I see the unionite cancer found this thread. All the down voting in the world won't save you from your 2023 demise.
This is because the wireless children inherited the company and forgot who really made their smart decisions for them. Foul mouth Fran and his backstop Mike were the first to realize this and tried to literally paper over it with professional certifications.
Then with the advent of more resellers and competitors and e-sims the debate between Network and Wireless (there is no "Consumer" or "Bus" really) where Network wanted to be exclusive, cutting edge and premier, 'Wireless' thought that the future was all about renting out the network to any and all at any price you can get, just to get customers.
These are the same people who thought MM wave 5G would be better than FiOS fiber optic cable. How is that working out?
This is what happens when you let the Woke little children take over the store.
The company cannot expect to continue with premium pricing when they are allowing the same services to be resold by cable competitors and other resellers on the cheap. Even Visible is really dilutive to earnings. 2.0 a clown show of epic proportions and the 5G investments border on criminal for their stupidity.
Focusing on the Core Business
VZ pricing is premium pricing, where others are more reasonable and on the same network.
VZ Wireless is completely reactive to the market. There is nothing that says 'VZ Started that!'. Too much niche marketing, not enough national.
Hans and company have flat-lined in terms of progress.
But the employees will pay the price at the end of the day,
Base your decisions on best ideas not hierarchy get rid of so many managers that do not have direct reports what the he'll is an associate director a hype man lol this ain't public enemy we don't need Flava Flav but I guess we gotta check a box. Black make believe director check
The one competitor that is not unionized is winning. The other two not so much. They simply have far less overhead and pass those savings on to the customers and into their network.
A complete failure of leadership from the top down which precedes Vestberg
People sitting right near me on tmo and @ getting high speed on their phone while Im loading text replies in apps like it is dialup. A few deadsones eith mo coverage or calls at all for a long while.
Both those compananies also announced earlier better starting/minimum wages then VZ came around and couldnt even really match it.
Leaders looked ashamed to mention we were behind tmo and not very enthusiastic that wed go back ahead.
Switched to T-mobile after 30 years with Verizon. (retired last year) Saving $45 per month with free Netflix and that is even with my "retiree 25% discount" Can honestly say the service (network) is much better. 5G speed in rural areas that VZ wont have up and running for years. TMUS customer service so much better. They call you back, they make things right, so much better than what I had to deal with on a day to day basis with Verizon. I sold all my VZ stock because I knew how bad we were when my customers starting firing us for our poor service. Buying TMUS stock as much as I can afford as I see the Magenta Snowball gaining speed and the VZ customers leaving in masses. Just my real world experience.. The VZ titantic is sinking glad I got out when I did.
does t mo or att pour millions into something like up to speed? maybe they pour millions into the network instead.
not sure what the original poster is talking about it's historically accurate and even currently that this company is always reactive and never proactive. we're apparently the biggest and the best but we're always followers and following everybody else never come up with one original shred of anything
Pour one out for OP RIP
I work for verizon and use t mobile service for 2 cell phones $220 with vz employee discounts vs $100 all in for 2 phones with t mobile. While senior leadership doesn't even pay for there cell phones. Tale of 2 cities need more examples. Rich getting richer off of your work and loyalty.
What are our competitors doing better than us?
Quite simply: 5G!
John Legere was right when he said that the company had absolutely no idea what it was doing or committing to with its 5G plans. Especially when it is a failed accountant, from a failed parts provider, from frigid foreign market!
Leadership, tale of 2 cities 1 company 1 set of rules regulations for the union 1 set of rules regulations for management and senior leadership does not apply. Do as I say not as I do mentality. Hv was fired for poor stock performance he's here 5 years haven't moved the needle and about to get the boot. Terrible Terrible Terrible waste of money from oath to go90 then on top of that 40 million for this new clown to go away
No matter how much Kool-Aid that you drink, they will still sc--w you over. T-Mobile is much better in all aspects than VZ - particularly pricing, marketing and customer service.
Mint Mobile $15 a month for 4GB of data and unlimited talk and text.
Comcast unlimited data, talk and text for $30 a month using VERIZONS own network. Google Fi $20 a month unlimited talk and text and 35GB of data.
That is just a few I am sure there are many more.
The OP must be joking with this post. Just about everyone does everything better than old union bloat woke telco dinosaur Verizon. Why anyone stays with this carrier is beyond me...
