    So if I read it right Droid Maxx users should be able to enjoy new XLTE speeds in select cities. I understand this requires 700 MHz radio which I believe MAXX had. Am I right and is there a list of cities yet?

    Well, I think it would be much more fruitful to you if you have posted this over to the XLTE forum because I don't think anyone here can confirm this.

    XLTE is just rebranding for the AWS band 4 spectrum that Verizon started turning on last year. The Maxx has supported that band since the OTA that was sent out last November.

    It's not 700 MHz - that's Verizon's normal LTE band. I believe it's 1700/2100 MHz (1700 uplink and 2100 downlink). I don't know about a list of cities - I think you'll hear a lot about it later today.

    A previous update already activated the AWS ("XLTE") bands on the Droid Maxx.(November of 2013). I have said this in other places: When I got the update, my signal at my office went from toggling between 3G and 4G to a solid 4G signal. Highest speed test I have done there was over 90 MB/s. More often, it's around 70. At home, the speeds went up too, but not as dramatically.

    I am sure as heck not getting blazing speeds. I got much better speed on my old HTC Rezound than I have ever gotten on my Maxx. I have not seen anything past 18 on my Maxx when I would get in the 30s with my Rezound. Maybe the network is more jammed up now.

    Yes, it is more jammed up, which is why, I think, Verizon wanted to buy and deploy this spectrum. I know that it had been really bad in big cities, and when our phones first started supporting AWS last fall, I remember reading reports from some people who live or work in parts of NYC and Chicago were reporting vastly improved service.

    I'm in one of the cities that was supposed to be switched on and my speeds sucked all day, average was around 1 Mbps down and about half up. Somebody forgot to flip the switch apparently.

    Ouch. I'm in Columbus, OH, another city listed. My speeds definitely aren't blistering, but they're nothing to thumb your nose at, either. Mine are definitely much better than what you're seeing though. Wonder why yours is lagging?

    Looks very similar to the results I've been seeing in Lansing, MI. One of the listed cities. Apparently it's back to 3G speeds for us.

    XLTE supposedly turned on in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I used to average about 15 mbps. After XLTE and recent OTA, consistently less than 2 mbps.

    Keep in mind folks, that xlte is not fully deployed in the rollout cities. So you would have to make sure that you are on band 4,not just that you are on lte.

    That may be true but it doesn't excuse getting 3G speeds on LTE. That's downright pitiful. I've only been over 2 Mbps once in the last few days.

    Which is why they are rolling this out. Less congestion on band 7 means faster speeds. Be patient!

    I realize that, problem is this massive slow down is a recent development. Before normal speed test results were 8-12 Mbps down and around 5 up. Not to mention Lansing, MI isn't a huge metropolis, not even in the top 100 in the country as far as size.

    When running the speed test I recommend trying different server because you will get different results at the same time of day
