With 4G LTE service, you can download up to 10 times faster than over a 3G pipeline. Speaking of speed, back in June PCMag revealed the results of its annual speed test which showed that AT&T's LTE service was the fastest of the nation's top three major carriers. Of course, T-Mobile's sample size was too small to consider back then, but AT&T did beat out Verizon and Sprint. Next year's test, with a more representative sample from T-Mobile, and another year of LTE service under Sprint's belt, could be more interesting.
