Default 4G LTE Service

Ladies and Gentlemen,
I'm standing at the corner of Park Ave. & 34th St. in lovely Manhattan, NY.
We now have 4G!
The speeds are incredible. I figured I would start a thread to see where else our members are getting 4G service.
Post away!

Sup dude. Beautiful day today in the city! I bought 2 HTC One SV's (one for my GF)in the Bronx for $275 each little over a month ago and been having 4G around the Bx and Westchester County off and on in places. There is some coverage even in Rockland County. I was surprised initially when I first activated them that I immediately had 4G coverage. I have constant 4G right outside the city borders where I currently live.

I've had mine for 2 weeks and today was the first day I noticed it. I live in Jersey, but I work in the city.

Hi, I'm thinking about buying this phone. I was wondering if anyone has tested the new LTE speeds in Philly. Is it any much faster than 3g?

4G is much faster, when you can get it. It still isnt available everywhere yet. I dont think they should sell phones that are 4G until they can provide the service. Thats just my $.02 but the phone is great. Fast , snappy and very responsive (with Shinru's Kernal)

I used speedtest.net app today and I got 20mbps download, and 5mbps upload, that's enough to make most people's home broadband cry.

That's what I use. I love watching that needle explode into the red area and finish the download portion in a few seconds. It's so much faster than 3g.

Wow! That sucks .. where are you located? And there may be hacks to get your service to work on other towers while staying within boosts network, they do tend to be a bit complicated though.

I just started getting 4G in eastern PA, even though the coverage map says there is no 4G here.. however it seems to be about 50% of the time 4G, and then it switches back to 3G, but when I do get 4G its fast!
