    So, I finally got a 4G phone and it's not as fast as I was told it would be. I'm averaging 4 down and about 1.5 up. I thought 4G would be in the 7-8 range. Still pretty fast for a phone, I guess...

    Uh, it depends on where you are... there are places near my apartment where I get 50Mbps down.

    Depends on where you are, what carrier you have, and even what phone you have. I've hit 40 Mbps down in LTE areas, and average about 15 Mbps.

    Holy smokes, 40-50?????

    I'm in Southern Cali, but a buddy of mine pointed out that my phone is not LTE capable, but only 4g. I thought 4g was LTE?

    What phone is it? Some carriers play fast and loose with the term "4G". For example, AT&T has decided that it's iPhone 4S is actually a 4G phone, despite the well-publicized lack of an LTE radio. So they just changed the 3G to 4G, even though there was no change to the underlying technology or data speeds.

    Yeah, I was a bit disappointed it AT&T's choice to change the 4S logo from 3G to 4G.. I mean it does use the HSPA+ so it's faster than regular 3G, but it's not 4G speeds. They should've used 3G+ or something..

    Fixed thread title from G4 to 4G. Was wondering what G4 was referring to.

    @ MSG2392 - Nice. Mid-town Manhattan can reach near those speeds I heard but I haven't ever reached those speeds. Low 20's maybe. Then on the LIRR around 3-6 once inside Queens. Chicago is about the same as NYC. Only spottier.
