I don;t see the advantage on a phone for those speeds. Its not like downloads are gigabyte programs. The most impressive use for high speed downloads are for SW downloading. Then one is bottle necked by the web site server speed. Web pages load imperceptibly fast even at 16 MBPS.
Video runs at what its going to run at and 3MPS is fast enough to steam video.A better video experience is one of the big selling points for a 50Mbps service, but there are no guarantees you’ll get that experience. YouTube still buffers their service,
If tethering or using as a hot spot I could see where it would help. but with ATT's limitations on data it seems rather useless to get those speeds for 4 GB of data then get throttled back. We won't see those speeds her for a couple years. by the ATT will be charging more for less data as people become addicted to the data portion. Although iPhone/iPad users are using 60% of all data at the moment. I expect the cost for home service at those speeds will be $100 a month. We watch netflix movies with 6-8MBPS DL on the home wifi and it looks great
