That's true, but I never need to worry about being billed for going over the limit. Just out of curiosity, how the hell do you use so much data?

Edit my bad this is att. Im verizon..lol ooopsHmmmm? I've been steady around 160gigs a month. No throttling here. Not that I even believe they throttle 4g. But then again things may have changed. Just looking around and saw this post ...damn I know lots of people that use more than me. However my use is from constant flashing and DL ROMs ..etc.

Then again, maybe I'm just bias with my grandfathered unlimited data.
I think those speeds are pretty bad dude.This what LTE should look like.i leave my wifi on most of the time which is why u see the icon but i was on lte there..no wifi with those speeds!

10 million people in that area with a large amount sporting Android and iOS devices... You're going to have some slowdown on your network. Hell, according to the graph posted earlier Verizon was only getting 3mbps higher.

All things considered, both carriers are doing a decent job. As the technology improves so will speeds. LTE is still a pretty young tech.

Bitch all you'd like but you're going to get considerably lower speeds in higher population areas no matter what carrier you're on. It's the same technology just different spectrums.

Nice Speeds

See I come from S.Korea when our internet speed was 6-7mbps and United States was just getting DSL/Cable at that time.

I cant complain too much since I have unlimted plan I dont want to switch over. I just wish AT&T would read my emails about how you need more towers / spectrum where people use it more than having tower in some farm land saying "LTE EVERYWHERE 10x 3G SPEED" but never realized where I live its more like -10x 3G Speed

In the city people do not NEED the lte speeds, yes I understand you WANT them, but you all can already get great cable modem speeds for your home internet service and there are wifi hotspots everywhere. I have a few friends that live a mile or two away from me that can only get 1 way cable service so they get 1mb down and 56k up, my house is on a major highway so I get 25 down 5 up on my cable modem. Getting people in that situation will account for more money for att, Many of my friends teather their laptops and pay by the gig because the service is so much faster than what they can have otherwise.

Yea I understand your point, however I think your missing my main point of this speed. Its that I am PAYING for LTE service speed which is supposedly to be faster than 3G. Now if I cant even get 1mb speed why should i still pay for $40-50 dollars ? thats my main point if a company sells a product they are suppose to deliver it however ATT did not in my area at least.

If there was a way for me to toggle and use 3G only I would. Since 3G is speed is still faster in my area. But our galaxy s3 won't stay on 3g only bummers.
