I just fund out that i get 18% off of data plans from at&t and 8% from verizon. I have always been a verizon cell phone carrier and never been with at&t. There is a at&t and verizon tower in my town so service isn't an issue locally. I do travel from ohio to iowa a few times a year and have not a problem with verizon service. Not sure how at&t would be. Which provider would you choose and why?
