Location is definitely relative. Hspa+ where I am gets 4-7 consistently and full bar consistent signal. Verizon 3G gets around 150 - 300 kbps down and LTE gets roughly 12 mbps; however signal drops constantly. I am in a town of roughly 200,000 people. So not a major city, but still good sized.

They are rushing to deploy LTE because it is way cheaper for them to run, and due to marketing consumers are aware that LTE is the next big thing and want it. I also think it is so they can bill for voice again since it will be going over data, and as it stands right now voice has more or less no value to carriers (opinion).

I will agree with you I was a little off on saying Consumer Reports is Paid by Verizon, the moment got the best of me. I do think AT&T deserves to be second now days though and have no idea how they are still at the bottom. The days of 2007 AT&T are gone. I can count the calls I've dropped in the last year on one hand......I can't imagine how Sprint and Tmobile could top them in service.

And ay the more competition the better.
