Sprint has landed at the bottom of Consumer Reports' annual ranking of cellphone service providers, dropping from the No. 2 spot last year.

Sprint this year received “dismal marks” for value, voice, text and 4G reliability, according to the report, which is based on a survey of 58,399 subscribers.
