I'd have to say Verizon. I have to drop their service for AT&T. Company move, not mine.

I use Sprint and I love it.

Agree, Verizon is the way to go.

I am changing out all the ATT/Cingular cards for Verizon, no complaints with the Verizon like I had with the ATT.

We will have over 100 cards with Verizon before the end of the year.

You can use the Verizon PC5750 card with the Kyocera KR2 router to share your broadband connection, works great when you have EVDO Rev A, I even run VOIP phones over it.

I have Sprint and it's great. I haven't tried any others. My card goes into a USB port, so I can use it in my laptop and my computer in my office. Win-win.

Last year I went out to a oil rig(on land)

neither my sprint nor my t-mobile got a signal
(Verizon was the phone everyone used in LA)

I always wondered what kind of download speeds you can get out of those cards.

You want to see who offers what in your area... Verizon to have the best network going. AT&T lies like a motherfucker about their coverage, they will show a whole area as having service, yet there are some towers that are not capable, and you'll get awful/useless speeds.

Get both!

Sprint and Verizon have 30 day - no hassle trial periods.

I went with Verizion for our District. 150+ cards and no problems.

ATT does not mis-represent their coverage their cpverage maps are very accurate..
you MUST click the 3G icon when searching for broadband wireless service.. it will work to within 50 yards of where the map says.. that aint bad..


if you click data coverage it will give all GPRS/EDGE coverage by default unless you select 3G

Check my post above. The Verizon PC5750 works great with the Kyocera KR2 Router.
