I live within 3 miles of 4G...it's that close!
I am 2 blocks from 4G service...not kidding.
i still can't believe att is airing their largest 4g in the country commercial all over tv. my 3g on droidx was faster then their "4g".
I had both an AT&T and Verizon 4G phone and used them side by side at various times to conduct speed tests. What I found is:I agree with the false advertising is stupid but on the other hand hspa+ (att "4g") is definitely faster than Verizon 3g hands down...
The hspa+ phone you compared to must have sucked, or att just didn't have decent coverage there...
Here is an estimated breakdown of the average speeds
3g 1-2.5 mb/s
Hspa+ 2-5 mb/s
4g lte 2.5- 10+ mb/s
I made this on April 18 to compare Verizon and AT&T LTE markets. Verizon is red, AT&T is blue:
