Re: verizon vs att vs sprint

Network matters... and at this point, I'd question Sprint's long term viability as a company...

Sprint has a long way to ever compete at this point. They've tried to refarm their towers, offer more for less, yet they're missing one serious component.

Their network instability in most of their vital customer base locations.

I used to work for their subsidiary Boost Mobile.

Edit: I like T-Mobile but if you travel a lot, I really don't think it's viable. It's got a way to go with coverages. It works great where it does work. Where it doesn't, however, it's pretty painful data wise.

Re: Which mobile carrier is better Verizon vs AT&T vs Sprint?

I agree with kch - It is basically who works better in your neck of the woods? Verizon or AT&T? For me, it has always been Verizon. However, I just moved back to southern NH after a decade in SC. While all my family, and most of my friends up here have Verizon, I am no longer convinced they are the best. As a matter of fact, they down right stink at my house. I am "lucky" enough to have LTEino (LTE in name only, it is pitifully slow) in the front yard and some front rooms of my house, and 3G in most of my house and the back yard. This causes speeds to stink, and I have never dropped so many calls (even before my 6 came in - Trying their VoLTE was miserable. Calls would drop constantly as the tide of LTE ebbed and flowed. I turned that feature off, but still drop calls. And Verizon wants $250 for network extender, and will get around to WiFi Calling when they feel like it, because their network is so good, they don't need to worry about it. AT&T I believe will give you a network extender if this is common for you - but not 100% sure)

Even highly traveled areas that you would think would be LTE available, like the major shopping areas right along the major highway of the largest city in the state? 3G half the time.

I know that I have settled into trusting Verizon, but that was my mistake. Next year I will be looking at AT&T and seeing if they will let me do a test drive like T-Mobile allows.
