    According to the specs we do not have the radios for XLTE.

    I know it says we don't have it, but the speeds at my house have doubled. Also, I was in a part of town today where I got 41.16 down, 5.54 up, and I've never gotten speeds that high there. Maybe the people who have XLTE have freed up bandwith for the rest of us? Either way, I'm happy with the increase.

    Yes you're still on band 13 not band 4 (aka xlte) if you were upload speeds should be closer to or over 20mbps

    No, but you still will see a difference. Verizon says 35% of the devices they sell support it, so considering most of those devices are flagships and will sell better than the other 65% of devices a large portion of customers will be seamlessly transferred over to a different LTE band where available which frees up more bandwidth for those left out. Now something more of a personal observation. Those other 65% of devices being sold do include basic phones and starter smartphones whose users probably aren't going to be heavy users like we are. Don't see many S3 mini users rocking Netflix or streamline Pandora. Just an observation from years in the industry.

    I expected that to happen. Oh well. Only time will tell for sure.

    I'm thinking this is what happened.
