    I would root so you don't have a monthly limit.
    What limit? There is no limit on data for the Droid.
    I believe hes referring to the limit you get when your using official verizon tethering

    Actually it's 2gb... But Data on the Droid is unlimited.

    LTE is verizons verson of 4G. Sprints 4G is called Wi-Max, technically. Sprints 4G is more like a 3.5G it is built on IEEE 802.16 wireless network standard. Not sure what LTE is going to be built on but I know that it will be a lot faster.

    LTE is going to be using a communication frequency verizon bought from the FCC. It is a lot higher that what the current cdma frequencies are. The data rate that is attainable is nearly 5x that of our current 3g we have now, What is sad is my friends have EVO's and my browser loads up faster than theres do at the same locations..

    If you tether wireless with the hot spot capability unrooted there is a 5gb limit

    Lte penetrates walls better than 4g. They are totally different technology.
