    My LTE signal is MUCH faster than my home Wifi, but home wifi always has a faster "Ping", when ordering which is faster....home wifi or your carriers Network?

    My iPad will be on Wi-Fi and my iPhone will be on its cellular connection or 4G which is like LTE in the US.

    At the end of the day the speed of your internet connection won't be the main facto. The stability of Apple's site and their connection will be more important. You could have the fastest connection in the world but if Apple's servers slow down or are brought down that will be of little consequence.

    My home network on a typical evening at 9pm (Hawaii) runs at 1 megabit if I am lucky. 3 megabit if every porn site on the planet is disabled for my neighborhood.

    LTE is 35 megabit.

    Phone will try with LTE, home computer on slower network. I expect the phone and apple pay to win.

    You guys are seriously nuts dissecting the nonsensical minutia. Just order using whatever the hell you have available.

    Unfortunately none of these speeds will matter if Apple's servers don't hold up :(

    Good luck with that, brah. Of course being in Hawaii, you are closer to Cupertino than many folks. Maybe some whale calls might help? :D

    Currently my best result is with WIFI. Not great reception for LTE where I am.

    I doubt it matters, but when it comes to this, response time (ping) is more important than throughput when you have more than a few Mbps in both cases.
