    LTE still isn't turned on here in columbus. i was wondering if i'd see improved signals when it is. or is it the same towers?

    I went from terrible Verizon 3G to awesome LTE with Verizon. For me it was night and day. Good luck.

    You'll see a dramatic speed improvement. Here in my city LTE is fairly new and its pretty "spotty" still.

    It's separate from your 3G service.
    Maybe better, maybe worst but the data speed will sure be faster.
    Remember you don't make calls on LTE, just data for now.

    So much also depends on where you are. Inside of some 'dense' buildings, there can be a degradation of signal strength. And AT&T and Verizon are each implementing LTE in different ways, so it's kind of hard to give a 'one size fits all' answer.

    Well I get LTE data in all buildings on campus now, except basements. I never got any data on "4G" with AT&T even with full bars.
