    It comes down to what's the most reliable, speediest service you can get for the best price wherever you frequent and travel. Ads that scream about great coverage nationwide, for instance, do you no good unless the coverage is good where you live and travel.

    For me, GSM is an additional consideration, because of time spent abroad.

    I just did another test. Seems pretty fast tonight. We have a clear night sky here tonight maybe that made the difference. It is fast though.

    OK, all you guys in Canada and the states, try not to laugh too loudly!

    Here's my results in Scotland UK, using the provider Three (3).

    No LTE, just 3G services for us on this model iPad.

    Thought I'd put a smile on your face...lol

    In use, both download and upload speeds are a little 'Peeky'.

    Hands up, who's impressed? :D

    Pretty impressive! I don't get those speeds on my 4G LTE AT&T third gen, I'm in south east Florida.

    Great 3G, for sure! Is 3G supposed to be able to achieve speeds like those?

    AT&T 4G works amazingly quickly in the Washington DC area. It is not available in all markets though and will fall back to 3G when 4G is unavailable. The downside, of course, is the price of that speed.

    Hey, I'm impressed. That's way better 3G speeds than Verizon offers in the states. :D!

    Well I am for one..lol.. Those figures are superb for 3G in the UK.

    I use T-Mobile/Orange for my 3G and mine are really crap compared to your's, those figures are nearly as fast as my main wired Net connection.

    Looks like me getting a 3 network 3G card and give that one a go myself.

    For some reason Miami/Ft Lauderdale isn't even on AT&T map of current 4G or coming soon. I can't understand it because this is probably the most populated area of the state. The have Naples getting 4G next and they are small compared to south east Florida.
