    Is anyone having any issues with LTE on their iPad with either Verizon or AT&T? Any problems with weak LTE areas with the 3G and LTE hand off?

    No issues with my AT&T iPad 3 in my area. No dropped connections or anything like that.

    Location, location, location. It varies. Verizon LTE works excellent in Los Angeles and surrounding areas.
    But AT&T LTE still doesn't have full coverage in L.A. So it depends where you are.

    Couldn't agree more with this. Verizon's LTE is not great in my area which is why I went with the AT&T model.

    And LTE speeds vary tremendously even in major areas that were supposedly built out long ago (i.e. Verizon LTE in New York City).

    LTE is amazing in North Alabama. I can pull in 25 Mbps easily on 4G around here.

    Unfortunately, I must report a few problems with Verizon LTE. Often the internet connection is dead even though the radio connection is good (4 bars, displaying the LTE symbol). This seems to happen when I don't use any cellular data for several days.

    Turning cellular data settings on/off sometimes kicks it back to life, but sometimes a restart of the iPad is required.

    That said, once LTE & internet does connect, it's very fast. Faster than my DSL at home. Tethering has worked well too.

    We were in Pipestone, MN recently and I was surprised to have LTE service with Verizon there. I was glad because we had trouble connecting to the campground wifi. The LTE service was excellent.

    I've noticed this happening too. There are quite a few threads at the Apple support forums about it.

    LTE Verizon coverage has been great so far here in Charlotte, NC. During the next two weeks, I will get to try it out all over the place as well as in LI/NYC! Will be posting updates hopefully.

    I am having constant issues with LTE on my 3 month old iPad 3 LTE on Verizon. Odd how my iPhone 5 gets 3-4 bars of LTE and the iPad 3 gets 1 at best and drops to 3G all the time. Its lackluster performance has me questioning just how good Apple is with their antenna design and placement. This is a $829 + AppleCare+ $99, so I spend $928 and get worse performance than I did on previous LTE devices (aka Android) pretty sad quality for Apple these days.
