A family member of mine recently got the iPhone 5 on Verizon. I have the iPhone 4 (awaiting shipment of 5 from Apple). For me, the LTE is the biggest feature as it will hopefully stop dropping calls due to low signal and actually give me faster speed (I get max 2 bars where I live). I turned off wifi at home and ran speed tests on both phones side by side. iPhone 5: 19.65Mbps iPhone 4: 0.77Mbps Both had 2 bars but the iPhone 5 said LTE where as the iPhone 4 has the 3G symbol. Yea, Ill be upgrading alright!
