    Even so, it doesn't compare to my Sprint Overdrive's usage. When I lived at my house that got Sprint's 4G service, I was using roughly 50GB per day.
    LTE must not be that slow . Im shocked your not being throttled?

    It is not that fast--Clearwire is faster, but more sporadic on coverage. There would be no point to throttling--at most there is probably 1 other LTE customer on the same tower as me. STL is an AT&T stronghold with Sprint in a more distant 2nd.

    Verizon's 4G network.

    I live in California, not New York. I actually dislike New York.

    I highly doubt your the only one on tower. Obviously it's possible your being throttled as obviously it's not that slow to use data.

    I wouldn't. It's the suburbs with large lots... Definitely no throttling though--as speeds have remained the same or slightly better since I signed up for service. Using another phone (not on my account) yields identical results.

    As low as 1.5-2 on LTE, averaging around 5-6 and peaking at 9-10. WiMax's lowest is 5, average is around 7-9, and peak is 19.

    Yea, it ends tomorrow. I got to 890GB. I probably could have gone over 1TB if I hadn't used my AT&T data card for my latest trip. This is not really normal usage though--summer months with traveling and using mobile broadband as the sole source of data pushed it way up. My average AT&T data card usage is ~100GB and my average AT&T iPhone 4 usage is ~10-15GB.

    I think you are being throttled, on areas where sometimes I don't get 4G signal like my bathroom I still get around 6 to 9 mbps. 1.5 to 2 mbps seems fishy to me, at least the throttled speeds is still equivalent to verizon 3G speeds. what we need to know now is when throttling starts. I guess wiimax has its advantage over vz's LTE. how much data do you use on wiimax monthly?

    for other people who have LTE what is the lowest speedtest did you get?

    Again, it's not throttling (and certainly not a 2am!). I get the same performance on other phones, AND the VZW store's phones---which are certainly not being throttled. Kies in Las Vegas has reported the same thing.

    For Trocks---I did drive through Louisville twice this week, and the 4G is pretty nice there. Lowest speed was 4, got a few 6-9s, and a 16.

    Obviously it isn't "that" slow if your are using that much data. If it was as slow as you claim, it would almost be impossible to use nearly that much data.

    I was honestly worried about the data cap, but I can see that I didn't do too much damage!

    Wow you have plenty of extra data. I would use up the 2GB on purpose.
