I'm guessing I have more varied 4G experience than most, due to travels - I've used 4G now in dozens of cities and small towns. It is just as variable as 3G is.
I guess that is really my point. My 4G experience also shows a wide range of performance from one location or time to the next. I can't tell you what accounts for those differences. Perhaps, it is related to the ratio of available bandwidth to the number of customers using bandwidth at any given time.
Thus, while I would have the hope that 4G will ultimately turn out to be the greatest thing since sliced bread for many, I'm not sure that is a certainty, and it may well be that, for people like Texas Rebel, the biggest difference, when he switches to HomeFusion, will be that it will be Verizon support that needs to deal with him and not Hughes support just as, when he switched from Exede to Gen4, it was Hughes support that needed to deal with him and not Exede support.
