Re: Big difference
said by IowaCowboy:That pretty much describes the difference I see on Verizon with my 4G phone. I need a 4G connection now since I use an Amazon cloud drive to store my music, pictures and home videos. WIth a 4G connection I can play and view content from the drive right away. almost like it was stored locally. While with a 3G connection it's too slow to even listen to the music since it takes too long to download from very slow connection. Fortunately in the DC area I pretty much have 4G all the time. Except when the phone sometimes gets stuck in 3G mode (Since the phone updated the android OS recently)
I can tell you firsthand that 4G is faster than 3G and much faster than 1xRTT.
The data speeds on my iPad 3 are much faster than on my iPhone 4.
I can't wait for a 4G iPhone.
The LTE network feels just like a cable modem where 3G feels like DSL.
