I went with Verizon as well as AT&T does not offer 4g in Cincinnati as of this moment. my iPhone is with AT&T. I have to admit it was a tough choice at first; but in the end I believe I made the right choice for my needs.

I went with Verizon for my iPad 2 because their pricing structure fit my needs better than AT&T's, I was hopeful that I'd get coverage in areas where I lost my AT&T signal on my iPhone and it was the last black 32GB 3G iPad2 at the Apple store. I was happy with their service and I wanted an easy transition to my new iPad plan wise, so I went with them again. They have more LTE coverage in my area than AT&T does at present and I like having the personal hotspot feature.

I went with AT&T because I'm grandfathered in their unlimited data plan, and I'm in the Dallas area, and we have good LTE coverage here (headquarters is here). AT&T says that they won't throttle unlimited iPad users, but we'll how long that they stay with that position. I don't travel much, either. If it hadn't been for the unlimited plan, I would have gone with Verizon, no contest.

I went with AT&T. Out here in Alaska, there are no Verizon towers. Some people have Verizon phones, but they roam off local partners in the state. While Verizon is coming to the state, nobody has LTE here, and AT&T already has a good established footprint. There is no LTE in the state, but I travel a bunch to the lower 48 and will want that speed when I'm there.

You go places, but you don't want to take a lot of stuff with you, that being said I always drive. My GF usually is on the passenger side. I never get to play with my iPad in the car. Knowing Verizon Wireless has been out for quite sometime now. Plus, now experiencing it now on my new iPad. It's fast and I don't have to worry about speed, because I know it will be quick. Thinking about AT&T, while I was in the line waiting to get my iPad. I was on Gizmodo.com, I guess with all the hooplah going on about the new iPad. An article came out about which one was quicker VZW or AT&T. Well It was no contest VZW won. It also stated that the 2nd Gen iPad on 3G was quicker than the new iPad, which has LTE in it. Now, I'm not sure where they did this test in, a place with quick VZW LTE or no AT&T LTE. I changed my mind, kept on thinking, if I am going to move to Santa Barbara soon, maybe I won't need an internet connection. We can just the iPad as a Hot Spot. So pretty much VZW LTE is there, and AT&T isn't in Santa Barbara, just yet. Well I don't know maybe it is. Can't tell because the map of the 4G area sucks on AT&T. I am happy with VZW for once, I once hated it, because it was so bad at my house. In my area though, doing a speed test once, I got an upload speed that was quicker than my Download speed. Oh to think of the stuff you can download with that.

Well, I gave in. Got the new iPad and thought about it. I'm already with AT&T so I went with the AT&T version. I would have liked Verizon but the plan isn't good enough. Especially with free hotspot. I'd
definitely go over.

Hi everyone! We went with AT&T because of the cost! We were able to bundle with other services. I was dubious, and had it been up to me, I would have choosen Verizon, simply based on feed back from others. That said, I've been very happy with my service, and plan to stay with AT&T.

My true test comes starting today. One big reason I went with Vzn is I spend a lot of time in So Cal and moving back soon. AT&T's LTE map there is tiny. Basically LA only and not much of the suburbs. Vzn is huge. Can't wait to test this sucker out there on Vzn LTE.

i went with verizon due to the fact they offer 1GB/$20 plan and also the free hotspot.
am happy so far with the data speed. i guess after a certain point doesn't matter who is faster, what matters is the consistency of coverage. verizon's pretty good for my need in the Chicagoland.

AT&T here for two reasons:
I have a Smartphone on Verizon - going with AT&T gives me a bigger chance that one of the two will work when traveling in remote areas (which I do frequently for camping trips etc...).
3GB a month is enough for me in most cases... 2GB is borderline - so AT&Ts Pricing works better here...
