It does not mean the network is slower ... BIG difference. If you switch to the Bold, you will get a device a lot better than the curve, plus be on a data network that is faster than what Verizon can provide until they go 4G.
If AT&T's HSDPA is faster than Verizon's EVDO Rev 0 and Rev A, show me proof from AT&T's website and verizon's website. From what I've read, the speeds are the same. The only difference is that Verizon offers more 3G coverage. I've used both, and haven't seen any significant differences in speeds, and the carriers themselves show basically the same speed claims on their sites.
