Derby, UK. Not too far from my cell tower (around 100 metres). Will be interesting to see what sort of speeds and ping times I get when Carrier Aggregation is implemented.

Noticed about 3 days ago finally can tap into a spark band 41 on the eastern part of town 54901 in se Wisconsin. Can range from 20-40mbs West side still slaps me to band 25 or 26 with low pings but anywhere from 4-15mbs depending on time of day indoors or outdoors. I'll take it.

I don't ever recall San Antonio being this bad before. HSPA+ doesn't work at all. This is at La Cantera. Lost LTE while walking out in the outdoor mall, not inside a department store... It wouldn't come back either on my iPhone (yet a Lumia 925 and GS4 connects to LTE just fine and has faster speeds than below). Forcing EDGE actually provides usable data, which was surprising. Backhaul probably has something to do with it, in addition to the iPhone's odd radio when dealing with weaker areas. Could also be because I'm still on iOS 8.1, using an older carrier bundle and baseband version and such.

South side of Houston (Pearland) at none other than a Cracker Barrel. Not very good.

AT&T in the Boston area -- speeds all over the place

For the most part I've been getting pretty poor speeds (and usually only 2 LTE bars). I live in West Somerville less than a mile from the edge of the LTE coverage map according to LTE, and the lower speeds below have been from inside or near my house.

The only high speed (and way lower than what's been posted above) were, ironically, in EAST Somerville, which despite being a poorer neighborhood is closer to Boston and more surrounded by LTE towers I guess:

Why do people expect more than advertised speeds of 6-12 Mbps?

Why not? Everyone's saying they're faster than another. The only way to tell is to check the numbers.

I thought close to 70 was good in the Providence area. I'm going to have to check my speeds next time I'm in the Burlington area!
