    If you have Line of Sight to your serving tower then LTE might work well. If not, cozy up to your wi-fi router.

    My LTE connection is always faster than my home internet... sad but true. You could do a speediest before and check.

    Using Wi-Fi. Coverage in my house is rather terrible.

    LTE is always faster for me at my house, so LTE it is.

    This morning my LTE was 35 times faster than my wifi. Now both are about the same at about 1.8 mbps. Funny thing was my UPLOAD speed on LTE is about 3 times faster right now for upload while my wifi is the opposite.

    8:30 in Hawaii. Prime time for internet use.

    And OMG Apple chose this minute to do iTunes version 12.1.2 which will cause huge traffic. (my system just found it)

    I bought a new router and just got it running today, 100MBPS speeds on the speed tests. I'll use that, while having my iPhone att let as a backup, and a tmobile mifi as a second back up.

    At&t Gigapower makes this no contest for me, but will have a device on LTE just in case.

    I officially hate anyone with 100mbps. Reminds me of my family in New Jersey. They apologized for having the slower 72 mbps internet in their house. The computer seemed to refresh before I could hit return!

    On the best of days the very fastest my wired internet gets to is 3.5 mbps in my neighborhood. The lucky few can get 7 but they did not put that into the densest neighborhood on the island for some reason. My LTE is usually very fast (not tonight). Unfortunately they do not really allow wireless broadband here without charging a fortune for it. We WERE going to get something a while back but Verizon bought the company and used their bandwidth for their existing customers.
