Basically AT&T LTE coverage ends in LA around the Getty center. I get no LTE north of there or in the valley at all...

I should have switched to Verizon. We'll be lucky to get AT&T LTE in Ventura county in 2013.

AT&T doesn't offer LTE coverage in the SF Valley west of Glendale. Sucks.

Nope, nothing out here.

Verizon's LTE network covers as far N-West as Santa Barbara...

AT&T, even back in the 2/2.5G era are bad compare to Verizon/Sprint.

Let's face it, in SoCal GSM networks are just... well, crappy. It's down to the level where you can pretty much tell what the other end caller is on, GSM or CDMA just by listening to the quality of their voice.

Fast forward to today, VZW has pretty much all the SoCal covered with reliable, decent and sometimes fast LTE service, while AT&T struggles to cover even heavily populated area.

You snooze you loose. VZW was smart enough to acquire the 700 mHz C blocks EARLY...

Monterey Park, CA 91754 is still bad area for VZW & AT&T near the Monterey Park Hospital. LTE is non existent with VZW but calls are ok with an occasional dropped call. LTE with AT&T is 1-2 bars at least and speeds are about 5 mbps down 3 mbps up which is better then their 3G network since the cell site that serves the area is still 2G at EDGE data. Calls will surely drop. That is why I have a micro cell in my home to use AT&T. Sprint, Metro PCS, T-Mobile have their cell sites located on medical offices next to the hospital so I get full reception with those.

But, still most of Monterey Park, CA 91754 is without reliable AT&T voice and I think only 1 or 2 cell sites have LTE. VZW does have LTE in Monterey Park, CA and the speeds are hands down better then AT&T when testing in the similar location McDonald's on Floral. And VZW voice is definitely more reliable. T-Mobile has invested quite a lot of money into Monterey Park, CA so their coverage is superb here.

Terrible AT&T speeds in Beverly Hills

This is how bad my 4G signal is in Beverly Hills. I get 0.91mpbs down and 0.05mpbs up. Oh, and that's with full signal strength on 4G. I think this is a sign for me to switch all four of my phones to Verizon, as well as the phones of all of my employees.

If anyone else hears about the anticipated rollout please post here.
Hmm, that sucks. By that time T-Mobile will begin rolling out LTE-A. I'd rather just stay on T-Mobile with an unlocked iPhone 5 and pay much less monthly.

Did you get any info about LTE in the Valleys?

Not going to speed test because I don't want to waste my data... but my iPhone 5 has zipped and downloaded faster than my 4S by leaps and bounds. Well worth the price of admission. Also seem to be getting better indoor reception than my G3 iPad.
