This is ridiculous Verizon!
Verizon is being outdone by every carrier at this point.
Bleeding edged phones don't exist on Verizon
Galaxy S2: Tmobile/AT&T
Infuse 4g: AT&T
Evo 3D: Sprint
What are you thinking verizon? Your being left in the dust.

There's a HUGE difference between all of the other companies and Verizon and I've said it a thousand times before, but people still don't seem to understand.
AT&T and T-Mobile are using HSPA+ which is an older technology and hence a well known entity with new generation radios.
Sprint is using Wimax which is not an old technology, but the radios are in at least their 2nd generation phase and probably going to 3rd gen.
Verizon is using LTE and all of the phones are using 1st gen radios and they aren't a well known entity yet. By this time next year Verizon will probably be blowing the competition away by having the most advanced and largest network with the best performing phones.

Also, Verizon is in a totally different position right now. They have a HUGE jump on the competition when it comes to technology on the important side of the equation (meaning the network). Verizon will probably be just about done with their LTE network by the end of next year.
Keep in mind, the phone manufacturers can come to Verizon at anytime and pitch a phone idea to them. So it's not strictly the fault of Verizon.

Eh, I'm fine with my Thunderbolt. Having the ability to download at 20mbps is good enough for me and will hold me over for a good couple of years. And yeah, I've hit 20mbps on my Thunderbolt a couple of times. Bay Area, CA 4G LTE baby!!!! I think that's bleeding edge enough. ;-)My Galaxy Note 2 tells me to have a beer! Okay!!!

I'd say, based on the definition of bleeding edge tech, I'm glad they don't...
"Bleeding edge technology refers to technology thats so new that it could have a high risk of being unreliable and may incur greater expense in order to use it."
I'm quite happy with my T-bolt and with Verizon, tyvm.~ Galaxy S3

(And before you start flaming. I'm not biast to any manufacterer or Carrier. I post on Verizon, AT&T ,T-Mobile, And Sprint related threads and all manufactueres as well. In fact most of my posts on this website are in the Thunderbolt section. I want to become a technology journalist, so I have a blind eye to everything except specs and trends in technology.)

5-12 is still faster than 4-6 by my mathematical calculations.
