    Do you have Lte?

    If it says 4g with Lte under it in the notification area you are.. .if it just says 4g you are not

    The further you are from the tower the lower the speeds are.

    Hey Mr. Ed, where are you from?. I live in Plano, TX, and I am wondering if I should be able to get those speeds. I stream everything from youtube using JetVD @ 720p and therefore U need true 4g speeds.

    The 65mbps was at 75 and spring creek

    If I stand outside here in Princeton I can barely pick up lte surprisingly

    This could be an issue. I live in the middle of nowhere. I expected to not have LTE here

    Apparently, depending on where I am located on my property, I completely lose data connectivity while the phone switches from the LTE radio and the 3g radio

    A few occurances it corrected itself. At least once I had to turn on airplane mode and then turn it off and data connectivity was restored

    Please post if you find similar instances

    Sick speeds! Those are the upper limits out of 73.6mbps that one LTE 10x10 sector can possibly squeeze. I've seen 68mbps on Verizon's LTE though. [​IMG]

    Could be. Anywhere between Richardson and mckinney has been crazy fast along 75.

    I was shocked last night...I barely get lte in Princeton...only in the north half of my garage and front yard

    in orange county, california, my skyrocket gets just a little better speeds then the iphone 4s...

    my skyrocket says 4G on it but im not sure if its really connected to a 4G/LTE network..

    speed tests

    every upload was around 1mbps

    AT&T has no LTE markets in California. It has to say 4G with small "LTE" underneath. If it only says "4G" it's HSPA+

    So the symbol would be E - Edge, 3G - HSPA, 4G - HSPA+, 4G LTE - LTE? Any other symbols?

    Almost, at least according to the Samsung manual from their web page:

    4G=HSPA, etc
    4G LTE=LTE
