No more unlimited internet; who's the best mobile carrier?

Now that AT&T and Verizon have both given up on providing unlimited internet access and downloads to their cellular customers, who has the best deal for a smartphone or tablet? Are the networks competitive when it comes to speed? Does Sprint stand a chance to grow or merge if T-Mobile gets gobbled up by AT&T? From what I can tell, it's not like the price of cellular plans is going down at all.

Sprint may have cheaper data plans, but then you'll have to deal with the fact that they have fewer cell towers / worse coverage than Verizon and AT&T. So what's more important: saving money, or making that phone call?

It's not like your data plans were ever "unlimited", since AT&T implemented a data cap at 5gb, and other cellular providers followed suit. This is just a way for them to be more honest and let you know that you will be billed on the amount of data you use.
