    Still not available in my hometown, alas, although 4G is available in two other towns half an hour's drive away. Frankly, I don't care that much about full 4G speed, but it would be really nice if they could just fix the usually abysmal 3G speed we get here. 500 Kbits is a good result, 200 Kbits is more common.

    I hear you, Adama; at home, where the coverage map shows my house just inside the VZW 4G area, if I get 1 bar for 3G, I'm lucky. otoh, at work (actually, not *at*work*, but at the place I'm staying that has no internet) I get a strong 3G signal of 4 bars, but there is no 4G coverage......my best Speedtest.net results for 3G are 1.88Mbps down & 0.87Mbps up, btw

    The crazy part is, I get great signal--anywhere from 3 bars at minimum to 5 bars (out of 5) at the best. And yet I still get absolutely hideous speeds. Right now I'm pulling down about 20 kilobytes per second with three bars. It's extra frustrating. 3G service isn't always that way out here; it used to be invariably fast, 1 to 1.5 megabits, and still is sometimes when it seems to kick over.

    And one of the main reasons that I switched to Verizon was for 3G, since AT&T only has 2.5G out here and probably isn't going to get anything else soon.
