Sprint offers the best deal on data, though users of the Sprint version of the iPhone 4S have reported slower data speeds than the other networks.
Between AT&T and Verizon, AT&T's $30 plan offers 50% more data than Verizon, and also offers a $20 option for light-data users.
At the $50 price point, AT&T offers 5GB of data plus tethering, whereas Verizon charges $10 more for the same package.
