Verizons network is 99% lte even if it is slow lte since it was one of the first carriers to have it, days of pulling 60mbps are gone. TMO i prefer because it is less congested so you will pull faster speeds in lte zones and get lower ping. I had a bf who uses tmobiles lte as his home wifi and latency was no issue in mmos whereas in same spot with verizon where I pulled 60/20 with a htc thunderbolt two years ago.... i get 12/4.

Switching also gets you access to free international data & apps like spotify dont use your plan and all plans are unlimited data its just 4G speed caps... 0 overages ever. Magenta plans on converting entire 3g market into lte by end of year I heard so its a solid move. I would do it honestly I have both right now due to parents making me stay on it and tmobile has vastly improved on a monthly basis almost here. If you had asked this two years ago ide of said stay on big red but its not the case anymore.

Reason i asked was Facebook was magically eating data to the tune of 3 gb plus ate all my verizon data.

If you have T-Mobile coverage where you live then go for it. Do you have any friends with T-Mobile? If so, ask them to come over and see how the network is. I left VZW for T-Mobile but where I live I have great coverage for both companies.

service and customer service is top ship. I've been with TMO for 12 yrs or so. Depends on the area you are in .. With that you will have to do the research. Customer svc is great with them. I switched to VZ because i moved to an area where tmo had 1 tower and i could not get a signal at work. I've since switched back and found that the lack in coverage, is great compared to the price difference. I'm paying for 5 phones with TMO what i was paying with VZ. At home i'm on wifi. out in town i get 4g. I live just outside of a 4g area probably 2 miles, so when i'm out and about I get great coverage, when i'm at home, i'm on wifi. My TMO 4g speeds are way better then my wifi at the moment with WOW but i'll wait for them to finish their upgrades as TMO just started expanding the network to rural areas outside of urban cities. For me is was price over performance and VZ completely screwed me over with the launch of the G2 that had flaws, they knew about it, and would not let me trade the phone in. Sorry, but telling me wait a month for the update to use my phone was not acceptable. I'm now willingly using my wifi instead of 4g.
