Tailgating before the big game, AT&T's LTE users were able to snag a pair of seats on the 50 yard line, learn the status of an injured player, and call their bookie to make a huge wagerput up a video on Facebook and find out that someone stole the other team's mascot all before those using a 3G pipeline. This is just the start of the LTE era for AT&T and no doubt, we will soon be inundated with these ads for the carrier just like we have seen with Verizon.
Well verizon may be better in coverage and all, well actually that depends on were you live. Over here in los angeles at&t works exactly the same as verizon coverage wise, I know because my wife has verizon and I have at&t. Only advantage is verizon has more LTE coverage. But 3G wise at&ts 3G is much faster than verizons slow evdo rev A. My wife can never get more than 1.5 mbps on her verizon droid charge on 3G. While I'm getting 4-7 mbps on my at&t atrix on 3G. The only reason we have an at&t account is because we go to mexico a lot and verizon is crap in mexico half of the time it doesn't work at all while at&t roams into telcel mexico and has coverage everywhere and u even get 3G so u can still enjoy them fast speeds while roaming in mexico. While verizon on the other hand totally craps out and the only times it finds a signal its only a crappy 1X signal.

Well, since I'm posting this on my Droid Charge while listening to my buddy in Oregon ramble aimlessly during a phone call (Phonearena is a good distraction, eh?), I'm fairly sure you're covered with VZW. No wifi connection out here, anyway. Unless VZW is letting me make the phone call on some bizarre network I'm not familiar with... I'm on LTE. ;D
i picked up the Skyrocket yesterday and the LTE speeds super fast.
i'm averaging about 20Mbps download and 10Mbps upload.
But i have to say that earlier today i reached a off the chart speed of 45.16Mbps download and 13.5Mbps upload.
I'm in the DFW area.

With AT&T's 4G LTE up and running in a few cites (hopefully it'll come to STL soon) we can finally see if Verizon is as good as they say they are with the amount of money they have spent on commercials.
What made me go to AT&T vs. Verizon is the fact that I can talk and be online at the same time. Even with Verizon's 4G LTE you still cant do that which is what surprises me. I know that Verizon has spent billions on upgrading their service, but the smallest thing makes the biggest difference.
I love to talk to my fiance and download my pictures and videos of the Cardinals winning the World Series on Facebook and/or Twitter at the same time.
