Verizon’s Terrible Dropped Call Rate Almost Takes a Life

WE all know that every cell phone provider has dropped calls. It is simply a part of life. But, Verizon is very famously known for their dropped call rate. On January 26th 2010, not too long ago, a 94 year-old woman placed a call into 911 when her house caught on fire. Only to find out that her call would be dropped almost right after being connected to a 9-1-1 dispatcher. Now this is not the only time that a 911 call for help has been hung-up-on automatically. Engadget says there have been over 10,000 dropped calls for help. This is definitely not a one time, fluke accident. How does this story end? Well thank god that her neighbor was able to get her out of her house before it was engulfed in flames.
