Comcast might suck, but you won't get anywhere near the performance of Comcast on a wireless solution. Most people generally see DSL like speeds from 4g devices.

If you have great coverage in your area for one of those providers you might see acceptable performance, but if you are in an area that only gets 2-3 bars of service you will see spotty issues and performance that will more than likely disappoint you

turn the bars left and go right; that just isn't right

What are your requirements?

Are you only using this at home or on the go? If the latter, where?

What will you be using this for? Simply e-mail & light surfing? Streaming HD movies? Gaming?
