Default [Q] What carriers does the Nexus 5 work with?

I have a Nexus 5 and currently use Net10 with AT&T towers. Where I live AT&T doesn't have the best coverage. I would love to be on Verizon but I have been told that is impossible with the Nexus 5. What carriers can I use the Nexus 5 with and how good are they in speed, coverage, price, and amount of data(data cap)? Does anybody have Straight Talk with the Nexus 5 and how good is it?

Thanks in advance.


Edit: Don't need any info on Straight Talk anymore. Compared it to Net10 and it is basically the exact same thing with minor plan differences. I would still like to know about any other carriers though.

It all depends on your location. Att is great where I live, that's why I still use att.

It works on every carrier except Verizon. This isn't really a carrier comparison forum.

As other people said, the USA version of Nexus 5 work with ANY GSM Carrier (T-mobile, at&t, any of their prepaid / MVNO partners)... just need to swap the sim card

For CDMA, works with Sprint (and SOME of it's MVNO partners). Ting supports it, but not Boost Mobile

Doesn't work with Verizon or any of it's MVNO.
