    Hey everyone,

    I'm looking to potentially switch carriers. My contract ends this month. Then I will be free from Verizon and on a month to month payment.

    I wondering if anyone could post speeds from their iPhone 4S or "new" iPad (3) from the Philly area?

    I know LTE is unavailable from ATT in Philadelphia as of now, however I want to know if HSPA+ is just as fast as Verizon LTE in the area.

    When I was using a 4G LTE device on Verizon I would hit an average of 8-12 down and 1-5 up.

    So let me know what you think of your service and speeds. Any input would be helpful.

    I have the iphone 4. Download is 3.75 & 1.75 up. I know the 4s will be faster though.

    When is Philly getting LTE thru AT&t? Does anybody know?

    Thanks! Please post some speeds of you get a chance?

    I'm thinking of Making the switch, I'm mostly a data user, I rarely use my phone, maybe 400 minutes month or less.

    I know Verizon is much more reliable nationwide, but I'm in Philadelphia 95% of the time. I max out at 1.2 mbps it's pretty bad most of the time.

    What part of the city do you live?

    Also to the second poster, I don't know when AT&T LTE is scheduled to be competed. I can't find any info or timeline estimate.

    This is rare

    I just did a speed test after I read this post and I have to warn you that this is very rare. Its usually like 1.5-2.5 down and 1-2 up. If it was always like this I could not complain, but its not
