    What kind of speeds are you guys getting with LTE?
    I just subscribed this morning to test it out a little and see how good it works. This was my initial test. Not bad I guess but not great either.

    We don't have proper 4G yet here in little ol' England but I heard some of the reviewers in the US were getting around 40MB/s downstream!

    That's about right. It varies all over the map. I've seen as much as 30 Mbps up...but I like to quote 20/20, though I've seen less than that too.

    21/16 which is much faster than my DSL service.

    The problem is not connection speed. For example right now my speed is great, but trying to get web sites to load is forever. I suspect that the problem is tax time and nearing the end of the school year. In three weeks it's graduation. Finals will start in two weeks, so projects are due soon.

    Those speeds have got to be Verizon. I have AT&T in south Florida and the most I get is 8 Mbps.

    Did not know that. My speeds have picked up with the new iPad. I see commercials on tv from AT&T about 4G/LTE.

    AT&T certainly has true LTE - not everywhere but growing... NYC and close by areas (e.g. Jersey City) are covered well and I have never seen less than 15Mbit/s down and 10Mbit/s up...

    Proper 4G..? We don't have ANY 4G..lol I suspect 50% of the population are not getting those sort of speeds on wired and even a few cable networks nevermind 3 & 4G.

    I doubt our 4G when it does get rolled out in a couple of years, will likely ever achieve those sort of speeds, though my own 3G network service are rolling out their 3.5G around September which will work on current 3G devices as they are using current standard frequencies obviously.
    I'm afraid users hoping to see a workable 4G on iPads will have to wait for future model iPads to implement multi-band for it to work here.
