Verizon 3G Coverage ties with Sprint for the largest mobile broadband network title. One study shows the carriers being within 1 percentage point of each other’s reliability.
There are 3 kinds of mobile broadband. Postpaid, prepaid and rental. Postpaid offers discounted equipment in exchange for a long term contract. Prepaid offers no contracts in exchange for full price equipment. Rental offers no contract or equipment ownership in exchange for a higher overall cost.
