Whewwww, Weeeeee! AT&T LTE is Faaaasssst...!!!

- Hey gang...
Took a drive up to Palo Alto, CA today.
Saw the little LTE symbol appear on the screen of my HTC ONE X, and I thought I'd try a SpeedTest run.
Man! 23.55mbs download for top speed and 20.75mbs upload...Ran two test and numbers were fairly close together.
I just came over to AT&T from Verizon after 12 years. All the sudden my data and voice would drop off on my Verizon phone. I had 4 total replacements (3 Galaxy Nexus Phones and 1 Razr Maxx Phone) with the same problems. Verizon said there was nothing they could do. I even went into one of their corporate stores here in Fresno, CA and showed them that my phone was losing data and voice 20 to 30 times a hour. They witnessed it, they even called tech support, and finally after 4 trouble tickets, I left....But hey they say nothing is wrong with their network.
But anyway, the speeds from AT&T LTE are twice as fast as I ever got on Verizon's LTE network here in Fresno. Man am I glad I left that holier than thou self absorbed company...
I even told the rep at the corporate store in Fresno that this issued needed to be corrected today (3 months, 4 trouble tickets after this all started) or I was jumping ship.
After she called the Verizon TECH, they asked to talk to me....They said, "There was nothing they could do...." It told them fine I am going to AT&T to which they said, "Well our 4G is better than AT&T's 4G," to which I replied, "Well at least theirs works because right now on Verizon's Network I have 0G as in ZIP, Zero, Nada-G...For over the last 3 months" The tech didn't like that...
Thought you might like the picture upload to drool what is coming to an area near you...I know I am. Scheduled to be in Fresno before Christmas this year...!
Have a great one....I am out...!07-02-2012 09:53 PM
I wonder though....Are these high speeds due to the fact that the network is still new and there aren't many customers that have AT&T Phones with LTE chips in them that are in use?
I'm curious to see if those speeds plummet when everybody with an iPhone gets the new iPhone with an LTE Chip in it and they join us on the LTE Network.07-02-2012 10:06 PM
- I have news for the OP. if you think that Verizon has a "holier than thou" attitude, wait until you have your first situation with AT&T. I can understand your frustration with your problem though. Hope everything works out.

- Voice quality is excellent. Agreed with post above. Very consistent. If LTE happens to go out we still have hspa+ then 3g and edge if still around to fall back on until restored. I was told if Verizons LTE went out you had nothing and couldn't use your phone for anything until it got restored. Very pleased so far.

All that things they tried leads me to believe something was wrong with my individual account, not the network. I recall with the old dumb flip phones, text messages would get delayed by hours sometimes. I would call Verizon and they would have to reset the account "Switch" or something similar to that. I was wondering if Verizon would have to do something similar to that with the new smart phones.
But what torqued me off was the last time I spoke with the TECH agent on the phone at the corporate Verizon Store with the sales agent of the store standing right there. When I was told by the TECH agent on the line there was nothing they could do, after the store sales agent told the TECH agent that she personally witnessed my data and voice drop no fewer than 10 times in 3 minutes that was it.....So you still want my money and you can't fix my account? That's it I am going to AT&T....!

Only concern I had was man my battery in my HOX drained really fast. I guess the LTE signal and chip in the phone when activated really taxes the battery. I had to find a wall plug by 4pm to give my HOX a recharge.

- Very nice speeds!
If at&t still offered unlimited un throttled data
I would be there in a flash.
Another thing is...
I just can't figure out why
at&t offers such low data tiered plans too. 2 GB? I mean such great
data speeds but not much of it you can put to use.
I'm a heavy 4g wimax user
here 8-15 GB a month. Can't live with a cap and
I do not like going places having to look for a wifi. Especially, when you are paying a company to supply you with data.
Hopefully, Sprint with great coverage here in Hawaii will get their LTE up and running soon.
Again though very impressive speeds!07-03-2012 03:34 PM

Wimax here in Hawaii is liveable
speeds here average 6-12mb dl.
Even with those speeds netflix YouTube runsreally
smooth. And I tell ya with higher than 3g speeds
data sure gets used up like a v8 burning gas.
From all the press releases I've read... Sprint will keep unlimited when LTE goes live.07-04-2012 11:20 AM
- Chiming in from Baltimore, MD here... Just wanted to confirm all those LTE speeds. I've been making all my friend's jaw's drop..
I've been averaging about 30mbps, but I've gotten results from 45-48 from completely different parts of town. I've had LTE coverage 8/10 places I go, and if it's not LTE it's HSPA+ which is not shabby at all.07-04-2012 08:46 PM
