Best carrier for Iphone 5 in Los Angeles/West Hollywood?

I am looking to get an Iphone 5...

I'm looking for the best deal in terms of fast data, (preferably LTE) in the West Hollywood/L.A area, best overall value in terms of pricing plus I will need unlimited talk and text.

From what I've been reading Verizon Wireless has the superior LTE network and is much faster than ATT in Los Angeles..... However more expensive.

Who is the best carrier aroud L.A for the Iphone in terms of speed and value? Doesn't have to be ATT or Verizon btw; I am open to any and all carriers.

AT&T has no LTE in the SF and SG valleys.

Thanks; I've never been to SGV though and don't go into the valley that much... I'm more worried about data service around Weho...

AT&T does in fact have LTE in the San Gabriel Valley just not in the East San Gabriel Valley. I have gotten LTE in Alhambra, Pasadena, San Marino, Monterey Park.

However, I will admit VZW LTE coverage in Los Angeles / Orange County is far superior to AT&T LTE.

VZ is kinda expensive yea? I checked out a plan for unlimited talk/text and 2 gigs of data on their site and the total came out to $100??

Are those normal prices?

Verizon is the most expensive but also the best.
