    For me, the iPad 3 is a lot faster than my old iPad 2 due to HSPA+ and LTE with AT&T. YMMV depending on what kind of service you have in your area with AT&T.

    It shows 4G as I am not in a LTE market yet. Not sure if my iPad will say LTE or not when it does get here.

    My Vzn iPad does actually say LTE. My AT&T one said 4G. Never even activated data on the AT&T as I returned it so I couldn't speed test it to see whether it was LTE or hspa+ speeds.

    A person would have to activate a data plan with the AT&T iPad first in order to see if it would display the LTE symbol while in a area that has LTE coverage.

    Default In my humble experience

    At&t has always been at least twice as fast for data as verizon. My new iPad is much faster than my 2 in all ways wifi or 3G/4G. I have access to 4g near work, 3G near home but wifi at both locations so I have to turn that off to test the 3/g 4/g speeds.

    In my part of the world Verizon gives a better phone signal than AT&T but I care not with my iPad.
