4G LTE just switched on in CT!
Around 10 this morning I noticed 4GLTE on my phone. It wasn't there around 9:30. Now let's hope it sticks and isn't just in testing. This is near I-95 in Norwalk.
Now to find something big to download!

Fairfield is lit up
Just got my Thunderbolt yesterday evening. I work right on the Fairfield/Trumbull border and have 4G to play with all day so far.
Best speedtest so far is 32.82Mb down and 34.40Mb up (one test). I did have one where I hit 41.12 up.
It's kind of weird having a faster cell connection in my pocket then I have at home on comcast.

Careful what you wish for. Once it was turned on here in Norwalk, my battery went to hell.
Using the current monitoring widget I see that the average idle current draw goes from around 80ma to 400ma just by turning LTE on.
I now only turn it on as needed because I was only getting a few hours before I needed a charge.

Further, I spend my workday with a full scale signal due to the fact that I am about 500 yards from the cell site.

This morning I tested with a laptop connected via the mobile hotspot and consistently get about 12.5Mb down and ~6Mb up.
This seems much more in line with reality.

I live in Wallingford (Between New Haven and Hartford) and we have 4G in the center of town. It may have something to do with the VZW customer service center located in this town. I was at a restaurant the other day with my sons and fired up the mobile hotspot and they both connected with their iPod Touch's - everyone was happy and browsing faster than they can at home!
