    We live 70 miles North of Seattle in a small town (La Conner) and just for giggles I turned on 4G and guess what. We now have it! Must have been in the last month. Score one for VZW!

    Congrats. Around here I don't think 4g is going to compete with my wifi. I'm on it most of the time because 3g is really weak around here, but it'll be nice when 4g finally gets here. Just in case I need it.

    Thanks. Maybe they just turned it on and I am the only user! Almost 14mg down and 8.5mg up is much better than I had in Arizona last winter. May not hurt that tower is just across the channel from my house.

    Bring on ICS! Download should go fast.

    The Puget Sound is a tough place for consistent LTE. You can go from 4G to 1x in a matter of yards.

    Normally I would not leave 4g on, I however thought I would test drive it again tonight. It has been very solid, with no drops to 3g. Did I say fast also?

    That is fast. That rivals my wifi.

    I was just in Seattle this weekend and tested the 4g out around the U district and down by the pier. I was consistently getting 15-20mbps down and 8-12mbps upload. Battery drain was bad but the speed was nice when it was needed

    In southern Vermont the only place I have picked up 4G is at the top of a firetower on top of a mountain. As soon as I descend the steps I am at 1x and for part of the hike back down I am at no data.

    Always glad to hear that the 4G is spreading!

    EDIT: Here is my speedtest from the top of the tower

    This is a little insane. Look at the down load speed. To top that off I am at 19 hours and 38 percent battery, with 4G on and connected.

    Oh my God that makes me feel lucky about mine. I normally have average of 35mbps download. Highest was 42.5mbps. I will try to find a pick of some I did in a row

    For me the Rezound is not a "4G phone". its a "Turn on airplane mode then turn off airplane mode then you will have 4G phone".

    It all depends how close you are to the cell towers. Some of the people that are getting those high speeds are really close to there cell towers for there area. Me, I am on the edge or borderline. My speeds I get at home are 4-10 mbps down and like 1-2 down. What also plays into effect is the area you live in.

    I'd love to know a bit more on the technical side - anyone know what the range of an average tower is? How much impact does terrain have? How many people can a tower or cell support? What throughputs are at various distances? Just curious. Or where I could find this information?

    Thanks!

    Mine seems to switch manually between the two fairly well. I was on the new 4g tower for two days without a glitch. And hour ago I switched back to 3g and drove 40 miles south. Read your post and turned 4g back on and am posting this on 4g without a problems.

    Also being almost under the tower at home, battery life was not a problem. Seemed about the same. Hey VZW bring 4g everywhere!
