    Fremont here & I easily get over 35Mbps on AT&T.
    much faster than my 30Mbps Comcast at home.

    I live in Sunnyvale and spend most of my time around the South Bay & Peninsula. I left AT&T a year & a half ago for Verizon and at the time, AT&T's 3G data was certainly faster than Verizon's though Verizon seemed to have a more consistent connection. Call quality on AT&T was horrible though; this is why I jumped ship for VZW. Having said that, I'm not sure what AT&T's HSPA+ or LTE is like for data around here; obviously decent from what the posters above said. Verizon's LTE coverage around here has definitely impressed me - not only are the speeds excellent (anywhere from 10 to 25 down generally) but my Iphone battery seems to go alot further as well since it's not stretching to keep a tower connection and the call quality is good as usual. I can't speak to what AT&T's network is like now but my general experience was great data speed but good luck keeping a call. Hopefully, it's improved since then.

    Sounds like a good plan to me...if you're not tied down to either carrier at the moment, that seems like a great way to go.

    At&t LTE for me has been all over the map in terms of speed. I've seen 3Mbps all the way to 35Mbps. It really depends on location and time of day. Also, my phone will drop down to 4G and then back to LTE on a regular basis even in solid LTE coverage.
