Verizon told to drop 'most reliable' claim in 5G advertising

Wednesday 25 August 2021 | 09:20 CET | News
Verizon can continue claiming it is "America's most awarded network" in its "I'm a Verizon Engineer" advert, the National Advertising Division of the US BBB said. The NAD however did recommend the company stop claiming it has "5G from America's most reliable network" in the "Everyone Deserves the Best" commercial. The advertising body said the term "most reliable" was not a specific reference to 5G. NAD also recommended modifications to the challenged portion of Verizon's website.
