    Because Verizon is putting more resources in to Pittsburgh's even worse LTE at the moment.

    Wow ... And I was purposely avoiding AT&T. Man I was so looking forward to some double digits and here I am stuck in LTE infancy...:(

    I'm getting double digit download speeds with AT&T in Pittsburgh on my 4S. Maybe it's time to jump ship.

    They're still good speeds for browsing the web, checking emails, streaming videos and so on. Looking at the numbers doesn't really mean that much. My cousins have internet that is more than twice the speed of mine, but they both feel the same when using it.

    Better than what you would've gotten on Verizon 3G, if you look at it that way.

    That's true. It is blazing fast as it is. It's just that need for some raw specs I guess

    I'm in Cleveland and have found LTE speed is highly variable depending on signal strength and time of day. I can get anywhere between 5-20 down and 4-13 up.

    I'm in the Akron/ Canton area and I just got 20.89 down and 11.28 up yesterday. After doing a few tests, the speeds dropped to about 3 down, 5 up. It did this consistently. I believe it may have been throttled since it was the same thing over and over. I haven't even used a GB of data this month though so I don't think I'm amongst the top 5%.

    Now the Internet?

    Nothing works well in Cleveland!

    Just kidding ... I am in Atlanta but was born in Akron. Sorry to hear about the inconsistent web speeds. Hopefully speeds there get better soon!
