Exactly. Silly plans in the world of multiple touch devices per user, they should start at 10gigs all the way up to unlimited. What's the point of having the future now if we are limited by data plan, storage and battery life?

I'm happy with HSPA+ (which is 3G btw).

Don't know what to do with LTE Advanced.

People were happy with 56K modems back in 1998, too. I'm sure you'll figure out what to do with it.

Was really hoping for a great article on this one... Lackluster writing and poor editing really covered up for the fact that there was almost no information presented.

Maybe they should try working on improving battery life before increasing speeds. I find HSPA+ and LTE is more then enough speeds for everyday streaming and data consumption.

If we're going to make mobile internet faster, then it needs to be more affordable. Otherwise, they're going to make mobile internet not appealing to the consumer and no mobile carrier wants that. I love LTE and will probably love LTE-Advanced, but not at the expense of choosing that over food and clothes for my family

i dunno, that quoted 32 hours of battery life with the Razr MAXX HD is no lie... (i get 29 with my usage.)

Keep phones at 720P with a bigger battery.
Keep current LTE At 50mps and lower prices instead of raising speed.
