i had also tried Verizon for a year and had worse speeds than AT&T where I had no 3G at all and dropped calls.
The third cap is on T-Mobile using a Nexus 4. On Verizon, the higher speeds were outside and the low speeds were at my house.

I think T-MO is finally a contender. Sure Verizon hands down has the best LTE footprint, probably best 3G coverage as well... But T-MO has unlimited data!!
No mas with VZN & AT&T unless your grandfathered.
If I didn't have to pay $850 outright for my iPhone 5 (unlimited VZN) I might consider a swap to T-MO.

I have a Verizon iPhone 5 (with a nano SIM) , running on ATT through Net10 (I have heard that the Verizon iPhone 5's are on both CDMA and GSM due to regulations the FCC put on Verizon so Verizon could get the LTE bandwidth/frequency from the FCC, the FCC made Verizon have GSM and CDMA unlocked on it's phones (at least that's how I understand it).
I want to switch to TMO because of the soft-cap issues with Net10 and them calling me everyday saying I am using too much bandwidth (I am not a heavy user but did use Pandora for a couple days for a total of about 5 -6 hours) and apparently Net10 gives themselves the option of completely disconnecting my service (and thus me losing my phone number!) without notice!
Looking up my specs from my phones model number (MD654LL/A) gives me the following information about my phone:
Cellular and Wireless
CDMA model A1429*: CDMA EV-DO Rev. A and Rev. B (800, 1900, 2100 MHz); UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz); GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz); LTE (Bands 1, 3, 5, 13, 25)
802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi (802.11n 2.4GHz and 5GHz)
Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology
So, it does say I have UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz) but it does NOT say I have the 1700/2100 mentioned in the article, and it does not have LTE band 4 that I think someone posted that is also needed for the best speeds on TMO.
So, if anyone out there who knows about all numbers can help me out, I would appreciate it.
Also, my serial number ends in F8H2 and in the hearing aids part of the specs it says this:
Rating for Hearing Aids
iPhone 5 (Model A1428): M3, T4
If any of that helps / makes a difference
Oh, and what's the difference between 4G and LTE?
