AT&T and Verizon command about 65% of the US telecommunications market of nearly 342.3 million wireless subscriber connections. This makes them The Duopoly that controls the market’s share of prices, services, products and customers support.

AT&T for three years in a  row was dubbed the worst major phone carrier in 2012 by Consumer Reports whereas Verizon was listed as top-rated provider for it voice and data service quality. Verizon maintains 30 call centers for its 90 million plus customers, setting up the stage for a bad customer experience. This infographic shows a snapshot of how these major US brands are performing on Twitter with social customer service.
