Well, there's a couple factors. Verizon's has been around longer and I'd venture to guess has wider coverage. Since having an LTE phone for almost a year (two different ones though), I've noticed speeds have slowed down a bit. I'm in a well covered area in a city and I imagine the network is a bit strained here.
AT&Ts is newer, has fewer LTE devices so speeds can be a better. My friend's Note generally has faster speeds than my Nexus.
Lastly, two very popular LTE phones are on both. The SGS3 now and presumably the iPhone 5, which I'd be shocked if it wasn't LTE. Those two beasts will be further taxing the networks.
