Many or all of the products featured here are from our partners who compensate us. This may influence which products we write about and where and how the product appears on a page. However, this does not influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own.

AT&T’s network is second only to Verizon’s in nationwide tests, and it’s even better in some cities. And, unlike some carriers, AT&T still offers multiple options for families who don’t need unlimited data.
