I had 4g Verizon and it was god awful, it was probably the phone, the htc thunderbolt. It ran faster on 3G.
The Thunderbolt was a notorious flop. Just a terrible phone. Battery that lasted for 20 minutes, spotty signal, slow performance.
Verizon LTE is currently very, very good if you live in or near a city. ATT has the benefit of having HSPA+ ("4G"), as well as a more limited LTE deployment, so non LTE speeds on ATT are typically faster, but you're more likely to be on HSPA+ than LTE.
I live in Phoenix, and I get 15-35Mbps download speeds on Verizon LTE. The places I've traveled (Portland OR, Seattle, WA, Los Angeles) give me similar speeds.
