12 things to know about iPhone on Verizon
Verizon vs. AT&T - Download speeds
In contrast to the reliability report by Consumer Reports, a study conducted early last year by PC World showed that the AT&T network had greatly improved its coverage between 2009 and 2010. In fact, its download speeds were found to be 67 percent faster than Verizon's.
Also, on the same day Verizon started taking pre-orders for the iPhone, the company also announced it may slow down the data download speeds for heavy users.
