    AT&T user here was on the "4G" network with the 4s... was happy overall having broadband speeds on the go, however I use tethering with my MBP so it's always been a relief to get back home on the 30MBps connection.

    NOT ANYMORE!!! wow... this LTE stuff is just amazing. Getting 24/15 average up north of San Diego. The lag is hardly noticable now.

    Happy to pay for technology that works great. ;)

    Yes. My highest was 69/17 on AT&T in Boston. Usually lower than this but still pretty high. I was using the iPhone 5. Have not tested on iPhone 5s yet.

    Im with you on this. Upgraded from a 4s. Im on sprint and with full bars where i lived i would get 2/3 down and .8 up. But with only 2/3 bars of LTE im getting 10+ down and 8 up. its crazy.

    I was going to wait for the 6 but Im glad I didn't. Just opening apps has a profound difference. I held my 4s and 5s side by side and 5s was very noticeably faster. The videos I took with both looked so much better on the 5S. Defnetly a worthy upgrade

    Meant to post about this days ago, thanks for bringing it up. Averaging 40megs in Birmingham. Really nice speeds.

    Yep. 20 would be nice. But it's mostly a number -- I don't really feel the delay.
