Does anyone know what the average speed is for 4G lite in the SLC area? My 3G connection i soooo slow, i wanna upgrade to 4G. My controct is not up till Februarie but if this slow speed on 3G continues i might just cancel my verizon account and go to sprint instead. They have good 4G coverage here i heard. So what are the download speeds with 4G? Is there any site you can go and check? If the 4G is better then i might stay with verizon if they let me upgrade sooner like around x-mas.
To be honest, I would stay away from Sprint (Clear) 4G. If you are somewhere stationary with good signal it generally works well (and offers speeds ~5 Megs download), but if you are in a moving vehicle (or in one of the many 4G dead zones) you will hate life. Sprint's 3G in SLC is extremely slow as well.
As far as VZW is concerned, I have been quite happy with their 4G coverage and speeds in the SL valley. I usually get between 10-25 Megs download, which is more than enough. Other markets I've traveled to are often much quicker (San Francisco and Orlando come to mind), but these speeds are quick enough.
