    Same thing in Ann Arbor.
    You might get lucky and get a "whiff" of LTE...but unless you're on the roadmap for 2011, don't get too excited.

    Smoke if ya got 'em.

    Same here in South Dakota. We had 4G for about an hour and then it was gone.

    Where are you in Western Phoenix?

    I picked up a TB on Sunday and have had pretty much 4 to 5 bars of LTE in the Mesa/Tempe/Scottsdale area on the east side.

    I don't put much merit into the words of a Verizon store representative but they told me 4G will be all around Chicagoland at the end of May. This could be true though as I've been in plenty of areas with 4G and my home is in an extended area.

    But just as you stated, I've seen it too. My home switched from 3G to 4G all the time. I actually turned 4G off though as it drained battery way to much while in stand by.

    We went and ate dinner at the Vietnamese place just west of Dysart and was very surprised to have 4G LTE there. I live off Cotton Lane and Van Buren so hopefully it is moving west.

    I think this number is mistaken. That's more than twice the capacity of high speed dedicated cable lines and several times faster than what you need to view hi def movies. I think you might mean to remove a zero... It's still much faster than stock 3G.

    No, I think it's true. The theoretical maximum for VZW 4G/LTE is 51Mbps, I believe. Certainly, 30Mbps can happen, occasionally.

    I've personally seen 33 Mbps down, so I don't think he's mistaken at all. And it wasn't just a one time thing, it was in both Nashville and in Dallas.

    33Mbps on a VALID test? Because we know the speedtest app is not accurate and known to not correctly register mobile test right now.

    If you go to speedtest.com (or other speed test sites) while using your TBolt tethered to your PC, it is valid. From my experience it yields similarly high speeds. I can't test it now 'cuz I'm not in a 4G area.
