Temkin Group has released a new research report “Net Promoter Score Benchmark Study, 2018” based on a study of 10,000 U.S. consumers and the companies they most recommend. Apple is near the top of the list.

USAA’s insurance business and Navy Federal Credit Union followed closely behind, each earning an NPS of 64. The next five highest scoring companies are USAA’s credit card business, Apple (for computers & tablets), H-E-B, JetBlue, and Southwest Airlines.

Spectrum received an NPS of -16, the lowest score in the study. The next lowest rated companies are all TV/Internet service providers or utilities:  Consolidated Edison of NY, Arizona Power Company, Pacific Gas and Electric, and Cox Communications, and Comcast.
