Not worth it??? This was in Atlanta! And as you can see It was during a heavy traffic time too.
it's obvious LTE speeds vary with Country/City/Network..... Here in the UK the LTE network is just starting to roll out...and is very expensive.

Dang, I don't know what LTE speeds are around me but if I could pull some of the speeds pictured I'd drop charter and just use my phone. I'm only pulling 10M-18M off my charter connection.

Then the other issue is that, from the friends I have in the business, I've learned that both Comcast and Verizon, here in the US, in their current fiber-optic lines coming to our homes, have theoretical pipes as large as 205 MB downstream that we simply don't have available to us yet in terms of residential or business services. Then of course they will build wireless routers able to handle that much data as well and once again Wi-Fi will be king !! So LTE being almost as fast or faster than our current home or business Wi-Fi is only a very temporary thing.
I get up to 60mb of down at times and, no, it's no big deal. You are missing my point. My point is that once you get over like 5mb of down, it doesn't seem to make a difference. Videos play the same, Spotify plays the same, Facebook is the same etc. I could get 5mb of down on AT&T 3G before.Originally Posted by Bsadle1
I'm not doubting the speed of LTE, It just seems to play an insignificant role in making my phone feel any faster. I go back and forth between my iPhone 5 and my wife's 4S and they feel about the same.
Verizon has an unlimited 4g tethering plan for $30 a month but you need to be on a grandfathered unlimited plan to get it. I used to have that before I got a 4s. It was faster and cheaper than my roadrunner service. Just sucked that my phone was always plugged in to charge. I miss watching my apps download almost instantly.
