sprint gets 30ish..
here is mine

Thumb resize.


its more sickening to see the ignorance of people on this subject. Verizons LTE has been around for years longer. ATT is new.. they have less LTE devices on their towers.. they wont be at 50-60 mbps forever.. sprint is starting out at 30mbps (give or take a few) cant imagine where they will be in a year.

My LTE ipad was getting 55ish when att launched back in march (austin was one of the first ATT lte markets).. My speeds have gone down tow 40ish mbps already....

Simply put, Verizon is slower than AT&T and there is no excuse to be paying as much, or even more, and be slower.

This is why I canceled my home internet, saving me $40 a month. Tethered, Lodi CA, Verizon.

Currently Getting an average 30-35down and 15-20 up in NYC. One thing I have noticed in the last month is that speeds have dropped considerably. Most likely this is due to all the new users of LTE in the same area as me.

Looks like AT&T just switched it on in the New Smyrna Beach, FL area. Getting 60Mbps consistently.

I don't understand why people are grasping straws between AT&T and VZW LTE speeds. They are both fantastic. Once we get over 35-40+ mbps, I doubt a difference can be seen.

There is no clear winner between both. They both are ridiculously fast. If there is one thing that is correct, it is that Sprint LTE is a piece of crap next to the big dogs.

Unless you are using it in Los Angeles & Orange County in California!!! Verizon LTE blows AT&T LTE out of the water in terms of LTE coverage & speed. AT&T can only run on LTE 5X5 here and Verizon is 10X10

That is the best speedtest I've seen on any carrier, totally speechless.

My record speed: Scarborough / Markham, Ontario Canada.



(The MAX I've seen in my area was 70Mbps.)

The LTE coverage in so cal is definitely much better on VZW compared to AT&T especially in Los Angeles. Speeds are indeed much better on VZW too. Signal strength of LTE is also stronger in VZW. I have both AT&T and VZW iPhone 5 due to coverage issues in my general area.

The fastest I ever gotten on VZW was in Alhambra, CA at the In-N-Out Burger and I got 65.00 Mbps down and 20.41 Mbps up with a 48 ms ping.

The fastest I ever gotten on AT&T in Pasadena, CA was 24.93 Mbps down and 8.84 Mbps up with 84 ms ping
