    I have an AT&T LTE iPad and get great speeds at my house, almost always connecting LTE rather than 4G. I'm looking to buy an iPhone 5 and was wondering if my iPad experience means I will get equally good LTE numbers for it at my house?

    Common sense tells me if I get LTE with the iPad I should get it with the iPhone but who knows? Different antennas in the devices make for potentially different results?

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    Yes, they're both LTE devices and at the same location they will get equal coverage and speeds.

    Yes, my iPhone 5 is faster than my wifi using LTE.

    At home my 64 gb AT&T iPad runs about 30 Mbps down and about 15 Mbps up. My 64 gb AT&T iPhone 5 comes within a hair of matching it on download, but runs about half as fast on upload. These numbers of course vary, sometimes a bit faster, sometimes a bit slower, but the phone's upload speed always runs a good bit slower than the iPad's. No biggie.
