I have been happy with Verizon and had them for 10 years. However, I like to stream music when at my desk and in the car. Verizon does not have an unlimited data plan so I found T-Mobile and Sprint do. I don't know much about either so any help would be appreciated. I live in metro Detroit if coverage is a problem
I have Verizon as well and thought about switching because of there new data plans. Sprint for my area did not have good coverage(Temperance, MI.). Sprint wanted to give me a booster for my house so I would not get any dropped calls. I was not going that route. When my 2 year agreement is up with Verizon I am going to look in to Straight Talk through Walmart. Unlimited everything for 45.00 per month. You have to buy the phone but I think it will be a better/cheaper deal in the end. If you are serious about Sprint I would go to a Sprint store and they will be able to look up where you live and tell you about the coverage you will get. Not sure about T-mobile. Good luck!

I would go with Sprint..... Currently rebuiling every tower in the country, will be comparable to verizon or better with 3g and lte.
Check out the youtube video and website i attached....
It looks like Michigan upgrades have started:

I currently have Sprint for the iPhone (after previously haveing AT&T) and I can tell you that the network is slooooooooow! They can offer unlimited data because the network is so slow it would be amost impossible to go exceed any limit they impose. However, it works alright for streaming music but if you want to stream video, forget about it. Don't know much about the proposed upgrades to their towers or anything about T-Mobile's service.
I can't say to go one way or another but wanted to give you my experience.
I have T Mobile and can say that the service is decent. I have been with them for over ten years. They are also upgrading to an lye system.
I've had sprint and tmobile. I use to work for tmobile as well and going off of that I would pick AT&T or Verizon over them. Tmobile installed hspa+ 2 or 3 years ago before lte went mainstream with Verizon. The only main difference in that is hspa+ is a form of 4g lte speed for gsm networks. What tmobile doesn't say is that the 4g speed is only available in major city limits and once your out of the zone your on 3G service which is fast as Verizon 2g(which isn't a real thing but its easier to just say 2g) tmobile is very spotty out side of the city limits. No limits is awesome (especially when it literally costs phone companies a couple of cents for the 2gb limit for customer that you pay 25$ for) but when it barely works your paying for nothing.
Sprint and tmobile are very affordable because they have to compete but the reason their 3rd and 4th in the four major carier rankings is because they don't offer as much service wise. Tmobile phones are also usually phones the manufactures make as affordable options for AT&T and Verizon but the companies usually turn down because they are made horribly and never last.
Sprint ... I have there Unlimited data plan for me and the family and love it...
Still not catching the ever-contagious WHINE-FLU!!!
You are totally correct; the Sprint network is slow and does not have the capacity to handle user demand. I work for a national chain and we use both Sprint and Verizon to transfer data. We are moving away from Sprint because of this known issue which is nationwide.
Hail Hail to MeatChicken the Cesspool of the World!
