    Whose LTE network will be crippled the most with an LTE iPhone AT&T or Verizon? The reason I ask this is, even though it is an Android forum, a large number of members have LTE phones and will be affected by this. I would like to hear peoples' professional responses, not AT&T/Verizon sucks. Please talk about the technology and how the increased number of LTE phones will affect their networks.

    Well, there's a couple factors. Verizon's has been around longer and I'd venture to guess has wider coverage. Since having an LTE phone for almost a year (two different ones though), I've noticed speeds have slowed down a bit. I'm in a well covered area in a city and I imagine the network is a bit strained here.
    AT&Ts is newer, has fewer LTE devices so speeds can be a better. My friend's Note generally has faster speeds than my Nexus.
    Lastly, two very popular LTE phones are on both. The SGS3 now and presumably the iPhone 5, which I'd be shocked if it wasn't LTE. Those two beasts will be further taxing the networks.
