1) Which service offers the best high speed coverage for where you will use the aircard the most (I am assuming home/work will be top spots)? You should know your coverage with ATT. If you have friends with Verizon/Sprint/etc phones ask to test out the signal. Most newer media phones have an indicator to list if they are in high speed zone. If one company has a clearer signal everywhere, go with them.

2) If you have 2 or more companies that are equivalent in coverage, go with the one that is the best value. NEVER sacrifice signal strength to save a few bucks.

3) If ATT is one of the clearest signals at the locations you need, and it is comparable in price to the other options that work where you need them to, then go with ATT. Having everything on one account and one bill will make things easier.

People will go on and on about "nationwide coverage." or the cost of the aircards, or how much cheaper their plans are compared to the competition, but it ALL comes down to if the card works well where YOU need it. Saving even $40 a month for an aircard you can't use in your home or office is throwing money down the drain.

So find the cards that work for you, and then worry about price.
