    Until such time the infrastructure and/or technology gets to the point it can deliver the rated speeds for 4G, then its all hype.

    I opted for a 3G phone (Samsung Facinate) for this reason. I've been with Verizon for just over 3-4 weeks. The person I spoke to told me TRUE 4G speeds will not be around for at least a 18 months to 2 years, if then. By then I will be ready for anew phone anyways. So I opted to save my money and get a 3G phone.
    LTE is 10-20x faster than 3G on average. You took an L if you just signed up and got the fascinate.

    Not from what I saw at the Verizon store and read. What does "you took an L" mean anyways?

    On the charge I tested where I live, the 4G speeds were at least 20 times faster.

    L = loss. It would be the opposite of ftw.

    I agree with these guys. Though it may not be "true" 4G speed, LTE speeds are literally a 20 fold increase over 3G and if people don't think that's significant... Well I really don't have much to say.

    The thing with 4g is why do people need that fast of an internet connection on their phone? 3g does video chat and internet streaming fine.

    One example for me would be if you want to download a movie before you get onto a plane.
    4G will be able to finish it MUCH faster. I even think VZ might have had a commercial using that example...

    But really, 4G is just 3G. Except it does everything like 20+ times faster.

    I use to think I needed 4g. But after evaluating my use I didn't. I have never needed internet that fast in my life. It would be good if one was downloading gigs of data. But who does that really. With 3g pages already load in seconds. Video and music streaming are also fine with 3g. 4g is overkill but if a good phone comes out with 4g I am not going to turn it away. But currently the 3g phones are better than the 4g. I will never sacrifice battery life for absurd internet speeds. A small bump to 2mbs would be good enough for me.

    But why not already have movies on your 16gb+ SD card that you dl from home ? I would be prepared for a long plane flight. Ima agree with the poster above me. 4g is just too fast for phones. Even airports besides major ones have wifi. Although it sometimes cost money; 4g is just crazy.
