    I have no experience with either, but I've heard some issues with sprint service.

    I suggest that you look at Clark Howard's web site. He is the personality who makes a living telling people what is cheap to buy. I was there looking at cell phone programs yesterday.

    Look at coverage maps. When a site advertises, it shows coverage. The problem with that is going to be your primary location. I am against a hill in west Los Angeles. Until a tower was put up about 120 feet away, you had to go outside the house for reception. The other problem is people using your tower in your neighborhood. Sometimes, a tower may get overloaded no matter how close it is to you with your phone.

    If you go to sensorly.com they use crowd sourced reporting to indicate coverage in areas. I have Sprint cell service and was looking to add a hotspot to my account a few weeks ago and didn't get acceptable service even though sprints maps showed excellent signal in the areas I was going to use it. The data off sensorly coincided with what I experienced first hand.

    We were very happy with Sprint for a lot of years. The only real gripe was price. We have AT&T prepaid now, and it has a feature we like and more data for about half the price.
    We always had decent to good reception with Sprint. AT&T not so much, but it woks pretty good on crappy "Bars" of reception, where Sprint required a little better FWIW.
