My wife just got a new GS3 and has been playing with it. I still have my htc incredible2 3g so I thought we'd do a little test. Everyone in the verizon store boasted about how 4g is 10 times faster than 3g. The other day we had our phones out so we did a little test. We have several of the same bookmarks so we compared side by side. Her phone showed she had a 4g connection mine showed 3g. In each of the 4 sites we tested my phone loaded the web page faster than hers.
