Verizon Wireless launched a same-day delivery option several months back. The service arrived as a pilot program, and initially was only available in a few limited markets. Big Red took this delivery option out of the test phase in December, and we have also seen some expansions since the initial launch.

How satisfied are you with your mobile service provider? If you’re an AT&T customer, the numbers show you’re pretty happy, at least more than the competition.
