Think about it. Do you really think anyone will actually get the advertised speeds? Maybe your system can get data at that speed, but on receiving data that is being bounced from one snail-paced server to another before it actually gets to you, you would be lucky to see speeds anywhere near the claimed LTE limits.

Even getting 10Mbps is better than the average you get from the HSPA+ network in Toronto.

They'll get it, because nobody is on it. Once it starts getting more mainstream it will slowdown just like 3G 3.5g 4g network.

To be fair that's what everyone was saying about the Verizon LTE network as well and it seems that it isn't the case.

LTE was designed to try to maintain speeds through subscriber density so here's hoping.

Of course, at some point they could roll it out in a place where a lot of people are *cough*toronto*cough*
