    This is good and bad news.

    Good = because it's more information regarding LTE devices

    bad = 2.5 months (most likely) for dual-core devices

    ... as for tiered pricing... cable companies do it for internet speeds... so why not on your cell phone? I'm not saying I like the fact that I'll have to pay more for speed, but it's not out of the ordinary.

    Wait what? If you have faster speeds don't you normally consume more data?
    Exactly what I was thinking, whomever posted below you made a good assumption about this though.

    I use about 2GB a month on my droid, but thats mostly because I'm in college and I'm using it on the bus between classes and when I'm bored in class. I'm graduating soon and I'd imagine I would use my phone less at my job, even if it is an IT job lol

    However, I would like to see them hit hard against those who are illegally tethering and who will slow down the system. They should pay more than a person just using a phone for service. Sorry, not popular with many, but my view.

    If I ever decide to tether, I will do it legally. It is the right thing to do.
    Illegally doing it? Who says it is illegal Cell Phone companys because they cant make money from it. Comon Man be real your going to sit here and be Mr. Moral! Well I got something for you how about the cell phone companys stop charging for a service that should come with you unlimited data package. So in reality it is not illegal there just mad because they cannot collect on it and for you I would have no idea why you are mad unless you own the company.

    I just attended the first LTE training for VZW. It will penetrate buildings better because it will operate on 700Mhz bandwidth. It will avg 2-5 Mbps and have a maximum rate of 12Mbps

    More Good News

    I also know that VZW has purchased rights to nation-wide LTE coverage that is "supposed" to be complete by 2013. Even places that do not have 3G coverage now will be LTE by 2013. This is exciting and the fact that AT&T is right at a full year behind.

    Well, this might very well seal the deal for me. I may be upgrading to LTE.

    Does that mean it will be better reception outside too?

    Since phones come and go in the market place at the speed of light my answer is no the rates should stay the same. At some point all of the 3G phone sets will be gone as will the 3G usage. 4g is here to stay. Why buy a 4g phone and use it on a 3G network that is going away. At some point Verizon will simply remove 3G pricing on the basis that it's obsolete and all phones will be transferred to the 4g system IMhO.
