Same here.
Sometimes it even goes to non-LTE 4G for a few seconds.

I was just in an elevator in my office building in the South Loop and got 3 down and 3 up. Try that on T-mobile (which I just switched from).

Very nice read, thanks. I just dont understand how some other guys are getting 40+Mbs DL and 20+Mbs UL speeds, makes us here in Chicago look like we are on dial up. I know Chicago was rated as slowest ATT LTE in the nation but this article says we are on par with what we are getting. Either way I am happy with the speed but its a drug we all wanna go faster faster.

unless you see actual screenies of people getting that kind of speed, I wouldn't take much stock in it
I get around 40 meg downloads on wifi in my home office, but otherwise, I can't imagine seeing that on any carriers data network...eventually, that will probably be the norm, but not for now..

Check this thread out, has some Speed Test results. Again I am happy with the speeds I am getting just hoping ATT updates their towers in Chitown as they have been saying they would.
