    Apparently, the technology editors for both PC World and Popular Science have been very impressed with Verizon's 4G LTE network technology. Popular Science gave the Verizon service their, “Fastest 4G Network Yet” award in the gadgets category of the 2011 Best of What’s New Awards. Also, PC World ranked Verizon's 4G LTE network as the No. 1 in PC World’s 100 Best Products of 2011. Here's a quote from Verizon's presser,
    Both of those awards seem pretty impressive. What do you guys think... does Verizon deserve these awards for their 4G LTE service?

    Apparently neither of them own Bionics :p But, from what I read, AT&T's 4G LTE network is 'supposed' to way ahead of VZW's. Not something I'm happy to say, but have read.

    They deserve it.

    It's amazing how fast they've deployed LTE in a years times. There have been a few outages (expected for a new network deployment), but over all I would NEVER go back to a 3G phone. I don't even use WiFi unless I have to (amazon market).

    Unfortunately you're crippled by the tiered data plans to fully utilize the network to your hearts content (unless you have a grandfathered unlimited plan).
