Could people who live in Los Angeles, Riverside, Corona, San Bernardino, and/or other areas of the Inland Empire region of Southern California post their speeds and carriers? I've checked the other speed threads and haven't seen anyone post speeds from this area.

There are threads floating around with speed tests for Los Angeles, haven't seen any for Inland Empire area though.

My speed tests for VZ LTE in LA area are:

Van Nuys (Van Nuys & Victory Blvd)
13.01 down / 18.78 up

Pasadena (210 Fwy / Fair Oaks Ave)
11.62 down / 9.37 up

Alhambra (Garfield Ave & Valley)
17.25 down / 12.98 up

Will be out in Ontario and Fontana this weekend.

Also I'd do tests with AT&T iPhone 5 but its not activated yet, trying to decide who I want to use for carrier.

In Diamond Bar, NO AT&T LTE. What gives? Anyone know if eastern part of LA and San Bernardino County will get LTE soon?

The LTE coverage for ATT is pathetic in the Inland Empire. Most of San Diego is fully covered which I think is ridiculous. But I must say, the 4G speeds is much faster than 3G on my iPhone 4.

None of the inland empire is covered:

I'm in Riverside and those are my crappy speeds at home, but luckily I have wifi here. There's no LTE here, just AT&T's "4G". I get better speeds in other parts of Riverside. My house just sucks. I hope AT&T gets on the ball and gives the IE some LTE love.

Was at the Tyler Mall in Riverside and got about 35 down and 15 up on Verizon. Not bad for mid-day on the weekend.

Anyone else have any to report? Specifically Riverside with Verizon LTE.

I live in Temecula and switched to Verizon for the 5 strictly for their LTE coverage. I couldn't be happier! Strong coverage all throughout SoCal/Inland Empire, with a few 3G only zones for me.

LTE speeds are great!

My best:
Murrieta, CA @ 1:03pm
34.38Mbps down
9.09Mbps up

My worst:
Perris, CA @ 4:18pm
3.93Mbps down
2.96Mbps up

Average:
19Mbps down
10Mbps up

Those are some decent numbers. No one likes Perris, so that's understandable :D.

Riverside has always been an ATT town. In downtown Riverside, my signal isn't the greatest along with the speeds aren't the fastest. But it still works fine, but ATT might be better.

Riverside may be an AT&T town, but it has zero AT&T LTE coverage.

Might want to take a drive around town. They are currently putting up LTE panels as we speak. I saw them along the 60 fwy adding the panels and clearly LTE panels. I wouldn't be surprised if they turn it on by the end of the year.

Yes - just like Sprint. However, as of right now, there is no coverage. Thanks for the tip though!

Just saw the LTE light up near Walnut, CA for AT&T. Got consistently 17-19 Mbps down, 9-10 Mbps up when outside the office.
