    I noticed Wednesday evening that 4G LTE was running on my GSII Skyrocket. I'm in the Amherst area near the UB South Campus.

    I did a few speedways from home and was getting download speeds consistently over 10Mbps and upload around 4Mbps upload indoors.

    I was driving around near the UB North Campus where I usually get a better signal and had speeds or over 25Mbps download and over 17Mbps upload.

    I did peak at around 38Mbps around the campus.

    As of right now it's still running strong. I hope it stays this way and isn't in a test phase.

    I think the most southern it is going is Milestrip Rd in Orchard Park and the most northern is North Tonawanda.

    I visited the corporate AT&T store in orchard park. Here is what they said about LTE in Buffalo: right now it is a secret/silent launch, they will officially announce the AT&T LTE launch in September, it will go from about North Tonawanda to Orchard Park. Places like East Aurora won't see AT&T LTE until 2013. This was from a sales associate who was listening to me ask another sales associate about AT&T LTE. I am just a messenger.

    The AT&T website now officially shows LTE on their coverage maps for Buffalo. Strange they did not put out an Official announcement

    I wonder if it will ever hit Dunkirk/Fredonia/Silver Creek?

    Any comments on AT&T's LTE in Buffalo? Is anyone able to compare it to Verizon's LTE?

    Nice speeds. Do you notice an improvement with dropped calls? Is your signal stronger inside compared to hspa+? What phone are you using?
