AT&T LTE

These at&t lte speeds kinda suck. For about a year of verizons lte you could get 40+ mbit download, and in some cases 60.

It all depends where you live, I've seen Verizon LTE speeds here in KC no higher than 25-30Mbps.

Indeed.
I don't think people know this if they never leave their billing area.

I have left my 'billing area' many times.

Verizon has lte for pretty much all of the big cities in GA, and quite a few beyond. 3g everywhere else. At&t has better north ga coverage with 3g, but verizon is pretty much even IN LTE COVERAGE when taking in account the other areas that at&t doesn't cover. And that's at&ts 3g, at&ts lte is even lower in coverage and will probably stay that way.

Go out of the cities and you get edge crap with at&t. And edge crap for at&t is usually 600 ping 100 kbit d/50 u crap.

As of the moment, Verizon and at&t both have good speeds, but I doubt it will stay that way for At&t.

Look at how at&t handles upgrades versus verizon, look at uverse versus Fios. I would bet anything at&t has cut corners somewhere when building out lte.
