So no one is seeing the 100+ speeds as advertised? (Yet)

100?? Bwahahaha! Sorry.....I couldn't help myself.
That's all a pipe dream... Why would they provide us with such speeds when they can selectively throttle us while they lie to our face and tell us they don't. When XLTE was first turned on in our area back in Dec/Jan I think it was, I was seeing 50/60 mbps at home, where it's always been the slowest. That lasted all of a week and now my average speed at home is around 20-25 down, 10-25 up. Granted, that's plenty fast to do whatever I want, but if I want 50-60mbps speeds I have to leave the neighborhood....then it's no problem.

This is just my guess...back then they were calling it XLTE as it slowly rolled into 4, 6, 10 and then more cities. Now it's in over 250 cities & towns across the country and they are calling the same upgrade LTE Advanced. Just my guess though.

Ok... read an article that helps a little. Xlte and lte-a are not the same. Xlte was opening up the 4g spectrum to relieve congestion. Lte-a is the ability to send and receive data using 2 bands at the same time. Instead of the current send and receive on a single band.

my signal at home lately has been worse than usual with 4G almost impossible and speeds less than .15Mbps up or down. It's particularly frustrating because it's my only access to the net at home.

71.18 down, 21.35 up. Definitely faster than 2 weeks ago. This is at my job. At home I saw slower speeds for a couple days but it seems to have caught back up. Maybe when they were rolling it out it slowed things down for a bit? For what its worth i did signal check and it was on 700 band.
