    Hey Look Man I'm Just A Regular Guy! LOL
    Another diminshion and in this dimension
    Just got the 4g LTE and it's a little faster, but not that much faster than 3g. Anybody notice same thing? Don't get me wrong it's faster, but the 5 times faster some are claiming I'm just not seeing it. 20% faster possibly yes 5 times faster umm no.

    Something's wrong then. Your jaw should be dropping. It's that big a difference. I can't stand 3G anymore, especially for market updates. I go find a wifi connection if I'm in a 3G area.

    Yeah, 4G is amazing in my area! Get the free Speed Test app from the market and see what kind of speeds you're getting. I regularly clock between 15 - 20Mbps down and 0.7 - 1.5Mbps up.

    in Rochester, NY, when I can get connected, and stay connected--it's blazingly fast. But, that is rare.

    In the crappy corner of my office with 4g I get 8.15Mbps download and .24Mbps upload just now. However outside in a stonger 4g world I got 21.35 Mbps up and 3.27Mbps down when it was just turned on earlier last week.

    Edit to add that this is in Milwaukee

    4g...4.90Mbps down, 2.24Mbps up

    I dont consider these great speeds.

    4G speed varries greatly with the quality of the signal you are getting. If you have 1 bar 4G you are going to have a much slower connection than if you have 3-4 bars.
