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.
AT&T's LTE 'switch' was flipped where I live 2 weeks ago and it's been great. I do think I am ditching the iPhone 5 for the new HTC One X+. iPhone 5 is great but I loved the One X back over the summer and now that a super charged version is available I'm all over it.
