See how your service measures up. From SFGate's Cell phone firms remain among most unpopular:

Locally, Verizon Wireless continued its dominance, earning a score of 68 out of 100. It was followed by T-Mobile (65), AT&T (61) and Sprint (60). Nationally, Verizon was the highest-rated carrier in 17 of the 20 metro areas surveyed.

The good news for consumers: The industry in recent months has taken steps to address its negative performance, such as prorating early termination fees and allowing people to break their contracts without as heavy a penalty.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
