I grew up in Smyrna. Stick with AT&T there. Verizon still isn't too hot in lower NCCo or Kent. Verizon, finally, added a site in Clayton, after AT&T had one there since 2004. AT&T has 3 more sites in the area versus Verizon: Extreme west Clayton (Clayton Delaney Rd), North Smyrna (black diamond rd) and South Smyrna (Brenford Rd), are still clearly superior for AT&T where Verizon barely works outside. If I still lived back home I'd still have AT&T, but in Philly AT&T had some severe UMTS issues in 2008 that scared me away to Sprint and now Verizon.

Verizon's 3G is so slow in DE, you're lucky to get 200-400kbps unless you are next to a site.
