    I went through 800 MB on LTE in 15 minutes on Verizon LTE network. I only have a cap of 4GB so I have to slow down.

    What the heck were you doing in those 15 minutes that you used up 800mb?

    I downloaded a whole bunch of apps over LTE and ran a couple speed tests.

    I can see I will be using more that I did with my 4S, LTE is hungry

    LTE is amazing. I have an HTC One X and one thing I was shocked at was how much I used data on it compared to a 3G phone. Pages load so fast, I find I browse more. I tell anyone getting a smartphone with LTE, that 1GB is a minimum, but more is better.

    Glad I have unlimited data when I end up replacing my 4S with the 5S.

    Unlimited LTE for me with Verizon. So don't care.

    My kid burns through 2GB a day streaming Disney channel and PBS kids on LTE Verizon iPad.

    Once I get a hold of Verizon LTE iphone it will be the same or similar.

    yep, burning through a few gigs in a sitting is relatively easy. Especially when your getting 45 MB down.

    This is why I m keeping my unlimited data - people who think usage won't go up are naive...
