    I was at lunch taking a quick break decided to go to VZ they told me oh yea we can't do pre orders (knew that) and I just noticed on the desk 5 thunderbolts I was like :icon_ banana::icon_eek: Can I touch it? She was like no lol then (i think her boss) was like well since its sitting there go ahead. The thing was super fast, display super bright.

    And here is a pic of the Thunderbolt itself and speed tests

    20670kbps is roughly equiv of 20mpbs... which is the theoretical limit of my fios connection, it usually hovers around 18

    I thought the same thing. I wonder how it will be impacted by an influx of new users. I thought I read the LTE is like a "many lane highway" so that hopefully speeds remain high and it isn't only like that because there is one or two phones on the network.

    I would assume they capped the download and not the upload since they say blazing speeds uploading photos videos etc.
    That download was good enough to bring down websies and youtube stuff.
