Whose LTE network will take the hardest hit with an LTE iPhone
Whose LTE network will be crippled the most with an LTE iPhone AT&T or Verizon? I would like to hear peoples' professional responses, not AT&T/Verizon sucks. Please talk about the technology and how the increased number of LTE phones will affect their networks.

Neither...Sprint's will. Sprint is having the worst time trying to get their LTE system up and running properly, and this iPhone is going to absolutely overwhelm them."Speed has never killed anyone; suddenly becoming stationary...that's what gets you." - Jeremy Clarkson

Simply based on availability at this time I would say Verizon will take a hit. AT&T LTE is available but not nearly as widely as Verizon. Sprint is pretty much non-existent at this point. Verizon has the most coverage and I am willing to bet their system will show the most strain with the new LTE iPhone.
That is why I plan to hold off for a few months before I buy the new iPhone.

AT&T will. They barely have any lte footprint and already have been having issues since the original iphone with network congestion. Sprint's network is already slow but not overloaded like at&t's is. Verizon has enough of a footprint to help spread it out and handle it a little better.

Hard to say. I'm sure both AT&T and Verizon have been building up the LTE networks for precisely the iPhone. Guess well find out which of the two will hold out better.Servicing all your unlocking needs, including iPhone.

Plus verizon has had their lte out a little longer and has been able to work through the kinks and outages that come with a bunch of customers using their services. At&t doesn't have that many markets so didn't really get to see how their network will hold up with a ton of usage, which if you go from their hspa network it's not a good sign, even with the fact that lte is supposed to be more efficient.
