Who's The "Best" Carrier In North America?

Who is the best carrier in N.A? According to N. Moore Capital Ltd. TELUS Mobility of Canada takes the prize, finishing nine points ahead of Verizon Wireless. The N. Moore Capital rankings are based on 5 financial and performance metrics, and while the methodology is subjective, it is without bias. Verizon’s #1 finish in the US was closely followed by Nextel. While two of the top five out of the 22 considered were Canadian, perhaps this is the result of a market with four carriers. I’ve maintained for a long time that a market with seven carriers faces excessive costs, the benefits of which aren’t matched by the marginal increases in competition.
