This is why AT&T is taking their time.

Even on my iPhone 4 with HSPA 7.2, speeds are great.

With my AT&T LTE iPad on "4G", I've seen speeds upto 12-13Mbps. We don't need the speed as bad as Sprint and Verizon does.

Re: This is why AT&T is taking their time.

Yeah whatever. At&t just last month finally decided we were worthy of 3G service. Something Verizon has provided for at least 4 years now. And within a few months we should have 4G. I doubt we even get at&t's fake 4G within 5 years. Oh and at&t only has about 40% of the county covered in 3G. Verizon is about 95%.

Re: This is why AT&T is taking their time.

Verizon still doesn't think we're worthy of LTE speeds, even though we're in a city of 178,000 people just minutes from Los Angeles and get pitful speeds on their over-crowded 3G network. AT&T's 3G rollout was very rough, but they have generally been able to keep up with demand and speeds are acceptable for most things. AT&T's 3G and Verizon's 3G are very different animals.

Verizon is great where LTE is available, but powerspec88 See Profile is spot on with his comment.

Don't worry! On his iPad on AT&T's fake LTE, he gets 12mbps... yet miraculously didn't post a screenshot..

Right now I can only get ~8Mbps, but still faster than my iPhone. Here is a old one.

Perfect. Proof that HSPA+ is going to do AT&T well.

However, AT&T's HSPA isn't "fast enough" and Verizon's 3G doesn't need to be faster.

My GNex w/ 2 bars of LTE. Check the time, btw!


3G


While I agree, Verizon's 3G isn't as fast as AT&T's faux-4G. However, they have more 3G coverage (and AT&T's 3G/faux 4G isn't that fast everywhere!) and they have astronomically more coverage with their LTE than AT&T.

Personally, I think Verizon is on the right path, and I hope they keep it up. AT&T isn't bad (they're actually great here in Texas) but they're falling behind in my opinion.

In my area I can get 8 to 9 Mbps on AT&T 3G
