Guys, I rarely post, but I'm on this site 24/7 (and I'm not trolling, because I've been a member since 08! ). Anyways, I travel the southeast US for work. I currently have the iPhone 4 and although I love the device, AT&T's network has been nothing short of a pain. It's basically like hopping from 3G island to 3G island and you can tell when you're approaching a large city as soon as you see the EDGE indicator switch to 3G. I used to live in Greenville SC and AT&T 3G was incredible. Rarely did I leave the city, so rarely did I find any flaws in the network. Honestly, I think that many people rarely travel outside their city, so they don't experience the AT&T's subpar network as a whole. I've dropped call after call so many times, that my family and work are so used to it. Plenty of times, AT&T 3G is useless. I try and plan a hotel in a 3G area and still have problems with reception and data. I work in IT and so I need connectivity at all times. One more coincidence that I've encountered after being on the road for a year: Where there's no 3G, there's little or no WiFi at the hotel. That's a guarantee. So, to some of you who may be familiar with Verizon, I'd like to ask you a few questions. 1. I've seen the coverage maps. If correct, I'd be covered pretty much everywhere I traveled. Is Verizon's network speed decent enough to do simple tasks such as web browsing and checking emails? 2. Sure AT&T is fast, if and only if you are in a dominant 3G area. I've averaged around 2 Mbps as I do speed tests quite often. What is Verizon's average speed? I want and iPad, but I feel that I can't go with AT&T, because if it's anything like my iPhone 4 I'm doomed and vulnerable to a horrible network.
