Picked up my iPad (fill it in later) at bestbuy. Great screen, peppy all that stuff. So then I called Verizon to activate my month to month service. They tell me it will take 30 minute to process. O.k. Check that off my list. Then download more apps, logins, move things around. And decide to down loaded Speednet to test my speed.
Wow I was blown away(see below) but the 4lte would not connect. So I call and they tell me to go into general settings and reset my network settings. Did and done now 4lte works But my wifi speed dramatically dropped off.

Are my number consistent with other iPads? I have a strong four bar signal? How's your speed?

Man Verizon is slow with my AT&T iPad 3 I hit 49.75mb down 19.59 up. Verizon share LTE with metro pcs. Metro carries a slow end of it and Verizon end run faster than metro they both suck Verizon just has better speeds than metro

In other words Verizon doesn't go too much over 30mb down in a lot of areas which isn't bad but still AT&T is beating their speeds

I reset my iPad again and now its looking much better. I wonder if the iPad is releasing resources properly? I power cycled it before but this reset did the trick. I'm happy for the night.

Yep, settings>General>reset>Network Settings. This fixed my slow connections. Well I don't know if it is fast, fast, fast but it is much faster than my old ipad 2.
I was hoping others would chime in and post their speed results.

I'm averaging 3mbps with ATT here in Miami Florida. would be nice if ATT shared with metro until they got their own LTE up. I got metroPCS for my android phone and average more than 5mbps on it.

3gb on what on what device iPad 3? Can't be unless it just says 4g on the top left corner cause LTE doesn't run that slow

LTE runs as slow as the carrier wants it to run its a technology not speed.

and yes I have iPad 3 running on ATT 4G, ATT does not have LTE deployed in south florida yet.

Oh ok that explains your speeds are that way. I turned off my LTE just to see how fast stand alone 4g is it ran 1.5 down and .52 up that sucks. Lucky me I have LTE
