    So what carrier and plan is everyone going to use for their OPO?

    I am currently on verizon with my old GNEX, so I am going to have to switch carriers. I am debating between t mobile and straight talk. How do the speeds compare? I currently get roughly 20 Mbps with Verizon LTE depending on coverage.

    Anyone have success or horror stories with those carriers?

    I'm with AT&T. I actually manage one if their retail stores. LTE where I work pushes as fast as 60+ mbps download. I can't wait see what the One will do with this signal!

    I'm on AT&T GoPhone with LTE set up and everything. I can pull 45 Mbps down easily where I live.

    AT&T for coverage. If you're going to be outside of big metro areas on a regular basis, you really don't have much choice. T-Mobile is nice, but it just isn't out in the suburbs or even less populated areas.

    AT&T is pretty legit for me, except in upstate New York.. lot's of dead zones

    On At&t with my 1+1, get same speeds as my old phones here in San Diego. It all depends on your area and how has more power there. Go to T-Mobile and do that try before you switch thing and check there coverage.

    AT&T works well in NJ. Whether we can even get the phone, that's another story.

    I work for them so I am on a demo plan. I use about 2GB of cellular data and about 6 GB of WiFi each month. My plan is 4GB with hotspot for $10/more.

    As I am currently with AT&T I'm going to stick with them for now.

    I'm on the cheap tmobile no-contract plan and I run out of my 1gb pretty fast. Once I get a better phone it'll be time to upgrade my plan to match

    AT&T GoPhone plan here. $60 a month for 2.5GB of data. LTE speeds are the same on my OnePlus One as it did on any of my other previous phones.

    I guess I need to make a decision soon since I was able to order the phone this morning.

    Bye bye Verizon, won't miss ya.

    I tried switching from ATT to Tmo, where I live, it didn't work for my wife at all. One day was all it took to switch back to ATT.

    This is something I'm trying to decide. From what I gather, through straight talk you could use AT&T or Tmobile depending on the sim card. Straight Talk also recently boosted their 4G data cap to 3GB (though I keep seeing reports of early throttling, more so using AT&T's network through Straight Talk).

    My honest advice is to stay away from Straight Talk like the plague. It seems like a good deal from the outside, but people get randomly throttled left and right for watching a YouTube video or listening to Pandora. And their customer service is practically nonexistent. Pay the premium and go for GoPhone. Or, at the very least, get Cricket.
