It varies widely based on signal strength, how many people are using the same tower as you at once, and whether you have Advanced LTE on your device and you are in a place it can be used (Advanced LTE is Verizon's term for carrier aggregation -- ability to use multiple frequency bands at once to increase speed). It real life situations you will usually range between 7 Mbps and 30 Mbps, but could be as low as <1 Mbps in congested areas and there have been reports of over 100 Mbps in some cases.
