    Sorry for bring this to you late but we just have to touch on this topic. Have you ever wondered why Verizon Wireless went with LTE rather than any of the other possible mobile technology out there? Well if you inspect the picture above it seems they were smarter than Sprint with their choice in technology because those speeds are ridiculous and seriously impressive.

    Our next generation device will supposedly receive a max of 300 Mb/sec download speeds with a great 75 Mb/sec upload speed. Now with that kind of speed, you can do just about anything in seconds and still be ahead of your laptop. Tethering would surpass Wi-Fi and Verizon’s new motto “Rule the air” will make complete sense.

    Here is the information:

    This is all great and we are happy that XDA shared with us. This is sadly just part of the 200+ pages of documents they received but to be honest, I don’t want to be them right now when they have to go through file and documents that are endless.

    For fun, here is some more technical info:

    So guy, anything else that our beloved big red can provide for you to feel better? In all seriousness, I am glad to see Verizon working hard on being the fastest 4G network in America, and while you will never get to the 300 a sec speed, you will get pretty close.
    Let us know what you think below.

    Wow, that's 37.5MB/s. (I have trouble with knowing how much bit measurements actually are, lol.)

    If that's really what the true speed will be, then that's amazing and I can't wait. It seems unrealistically fast, but I guess it is a brand new technology so I guess it's possible!

    nice numbers is right but I thought I read somewhere that the numbers for the average user will be like 80/10

    Peak speeds with basically no traffic.

    The WimaxII(?) standard is 100mp/s d/l. Still only 1/3 the speed of what this claims for LTE, but keep in mind Sprint's 4G service is hitting, what, like 5meg/s d/l? VZW has claimed 5-12mbps d/l with LTE.

    Is it mostly just bandwidth/capacity preventing 300 mbps? I don't know all the technicalities, but at 50mbps you can stream blueray video.

    The day will come eventually when you have a standalone wireless device for the home that does VoIP, cable and internet. Consider I have no land line and pay @ $130 a month for cable and broadband with hi-def DVR service. As partnerships go, Google & VZW look like a real juggernaut.

    No,
    Wimax I, the version sprint uses has something like that. The Wimax II is much faster than that. Didn't you see the post we had about it, where Samsung achieved around 330mp/s without much work... and the max being around 700mb/sec.

    come on... It's not 300MB/s it's MEGA BITS PER SECOND.

    You're looking at a 20meg connection, which itself is rather fast.

    Bit and Byte a huge difference.

    eight bits equal one byte

    I think the only reason they use megaBIT instead of megaBYTE is because they can advertise a larger number for the connection speeds. My 20Mbps Qwest connection really boils down to 2.5MBps. Which seems more appealing right off the bat?

    Yep...so if the speed is in BITS per second, you have to divide by 8 to get the BYTES per second. Hence the poster who said 300 bits/sec = 37.5 bytes/sec. And, as the OP mentioned, 37.5 is the theoretical speed, not what we'll actually see.

    37.5 megabytes/sec, not bytes/sec, rather. Damn lack of editing on news threads.
