That's the thing though. THEORETICAL differences are huge. Real world differences aren't always so big. Everywhere I have tried 4G *Chicago and Los Angeles) it has been the same speed down as 3G. Upload speeds and latency were much improved but the download speeds (generally the more important factor on a cell phone for me anyway) were mostly identical, enough so that it wasn't worth turning on the 4G antenna for me.
