from what i've heard real world speeds will only be around 20mpbs, but that's still fast as hell!

My thoughts exactly. Why should I keep my home cable connection with speeds like this available all from one source and the ability to use it on the go?

Because it will probably be limited use. And you cant exactly install VZAccess Manager on an Xbox 360 for Xbox Live.

until someone hacks a lte smartphone and gets free tethering...besides, with that speed the limit would change along with prices...what those limits and prices end up being, on the other hand, is anyones guess...

With speeds like that....you would reach the industry standard of 5 gigs worth of usage in less than a minute.

100Mbit = 0.012 GB or 5GB = 40960Mb. Remember its Mega-Bit per second, not Mega-Byte.

I hate these thoretcal speeds that are always advertised. I want real freaking world speed numbers!

This while promising is somewhat unnerving. I can see two things happening: 1) Verizon, for example, might migrate all data to 4G and leave voice on 3G so that the seamless transition technology is implemented on that manner. But with the push for more and more applications of the 4g LTE radio it's not only going to be cell phones and data card competing for bandwith. While I've yet to see their 3G network crippled by high usage like ATT's 3G ... I wonder if the 4G being a GSM technology and not CDMA could end up being negatively impacted. 2) Maybe Verizon, in this case, will still use their 3G network to accomodate data usage ... allowing for VZW customers to pay the higher premiums for 4G modems/phones but also letting those of us who really can't afford to go any higher in bills to keep using our current 3G network as is. ...2010 is going to be VERY interesting.
