    Hopefully this helps someone on the fence between ATT and Verizon. This may only make sense to those in Houston. Took a drive today and took some speed tests on an ATT and Verizon iPad.

    Drive Route:

    Verizon 5.25/6.27
    AT&T 27.12/26.43

    AT&T 11.88/15.99

    Verizon 13.26/8.67
    AT&T 19.46/10.83

    Washington@Yale

    Despite ATT being slightly faster (much faster in some cases), i think i'm sticking with Verizon due to the hotspot feature.

    I'm sitting in my office (interior building) in Austin with 1 bar signal. AT&T LTE with 17 mbps down and 27 up.

    Speed Test

    What buttons do you need to push to do a speed test?

    Good stuff thanks. I'm in Houston and bought both also. I agree with all your numbers. Kind of hoped AT&T would be 20+ but it's still awesome.

    Everyone in Austin can just wait until all the extra sxsw antennas leave. Let's see it then for real world.
