    If your not on wifi i would have my 4g on all the time it is available to you... that is of course if your on the internet or doing data like the market. 4g will increase the speed of downloads of apps and use of the internet. turn it off when your not using data and it will save your battery. 4g is amazing fast and you will definately notice how fast things will become compared to 3g

    I have 4G on pretty much always. Though lately, I have it off while at work to save some battery (even though 4g hasn't really done much drain to my battery).

    In my house I get around 6-7mbps down

    Only use 4g when you are in an area that has it. 4g will keep attempting to connect to a 4g network if you arent in a 4g area which will drain your battery dramatically. If you are in an area with 4g, like downtown chicago for instance, just keep it on all the time. If you have a choice between 4g and wifi, choose wifi, which will save your battery.
