    Yeah it's not right . You have to run it through speedtest.net webpage or tethered to something else

    I got 4mbps up tethered to my Gtab which is still VERY FAST

    Getting 4G everywhere in my area (30 miles north of ATL) & it is much faster than expected! Makes my friends atrix, EVO, & my touch all on their respective 4G networks look infantile at best lol!

    Need perhaps one more choice. I get solid 4G at work but my house is just outside the 4G network so 3G there.

    It doesn't surprise me because there really isn't 4G in Connecticut yet. Check the coverage map.

    Also in central jersey. There's a gap between north Edison and Princeton but I'm currently at metropark station with full 4G lte. I also noticed earlier that I was getting 4G speed even though it still showed 3g last night

    I'm right in the middle of 4g coverage in ft worth Texas, yet only had 4g for a few seconds. Changes a lot from 3G, 1x, to nothing all the time. Never happened on my dinc. Probably going to return it soon

    No 4G in Metrowest area of Massachusetts. The VZW store I bought the bolt at had great 4G, I live roughly 3-4 miles away from there and I have no 4G in my town. The lady at VZW yessed me to death that "I'd definitely get it a town over" :mad:

    edit: just started getting spotty 4G at my house! (will come on for 20 minutes, gone for a few, back on again) I'll take spotty vs none at all, though. Now, I'm hoping I'll get 4G at work (closer to Boston, so I should) and I'll be 100% satisfied with this beast

    I just used my 4g Mobile Hotspot from Downtown Denver to Castle Rock (about 40 miles south of denver) and 4g worked for about 95% of the time and even when it switched to 3g the NCAA Hockey Game I was streaming on my Gtab never laged behind . I was very impressed . I streamed this way for about 2hrs at the cost of about 40% of my battery lol

    I work in Atlanta (couple of miles above the connector), and 4G has been sporadic for me, but I think it's my exact location. My coworkers who have Verizon barely get a signal on their normal phones in the office.

    I live just outside the normal 4g coverage area (roughly 1 exit up the interstate from it) and well within the "extended 4g coverage area", and I occasionally get 4g, occasionally 3g and sometimes "0g's". (compared to AT&T, whom I got no signal what-so-ever at my place).

    Oh well, it's the best phone signal I've had since I've lived here, and when I get 4g it's easily 4x faster than my DSL. At least when I go over to my friends house to show it off, they should be well within the normal 4g coverage area.

    No 4G in Tucson. Might have to make a road trip to Vegas to test it out.;) Going to San Antonio this summer on vacation but hope to test it out in Phoenix before that.

    Not in the poll, 'getting 4G all of the time at work, 3G most of the time at home'. To me this isn't a valid complaint for getting rid of the phone since the data plans are the same. Even at home when there isn't that good a 4G signal for me, I don't notice battery life suffering that much.

    Lol I'm at home on spring break. I am about an hour away from both Philly and Baltimore, but have zero 4g. It sucks being sandwiched between two 4G markets and not getting any. It's like they are teasing us. I'll be getting it once I got back to school in Pittsburgh though. It sucks because I can't wait for spring brak to end just to try out 4G lol.
