They said with LTE you can get "up to 100Mbps". I understand that it's not practical, yet, to really see 100Mbps in real life, but that doesn't making their action valid of setting a hard cap limit of 5Mbps. Since they are doing so, they should advertise clearly after saying "you could get up to 100Mbps, but we are setting the cap at 5Mbps for now since our network is not advanced enough".

I'm unable to find that claim on their site anywhere. Was that something said at the launch that they've stopping saying?

I can only find pages that say "10 times faster than 3G." I used to get about 3 Mbps on 3G and I get about 30 - 35 on LTE, so for me what they say and what I get matches.

Glad I could be there for you buddy!

Hah. It's easy enough to disable the speed limiter, not a big deal to me. Besides, it's damn near impossible to hit even 155 in the US

I'd love to get myself something like a GT3... But no way I can afford that, I'll stick with my m3
