On a separate but similar topic I find it a bit amusing that many of us are happy getting 7.5 Mbps from AT&T LTE when there are users in other cities reporting upwards of 50-60 Mbps from their AT&T LTE devices.

At least its no longer .5 Mbps and the service now appears to be operating correctly within the limitations of the current 5X5 LTE deployment AT&T utilizes in the Chicago market. I wonder how long before it happens again and AT&T continues to deny any knowledge of there being an issue...

This is sad. I was looking forward to LTE speeds while visiting Chicago. Long story short, it's not only slower than the congested crappy dsl wifi here, it's also slower than HSPA+ back in mid missouri, abd that's just embarrassing.

As a side note my friend also has a iPhone 5 but he has Verizon and this problem isn't happening to him.
I was in the northern suburbs during christmas (gurnee area) and was getting about 11mbps down and 8mbps up on AT&T LTE. Generally had 4 or 5 bars in the lake county area while there and the speed was better than I get in Las Vegas.
