    With the new iPad packing LTE 72mbps and HSPA+ 42mbps, let's see some of those speed test results!

    (Not sure how to do a speed test? It's easy, just download SpeedTest.net onto you iPad and hit the big button! -- yeah, it's an iPhone app but it works fine on your new iPad!)

    I got 40mbps down on a Rogers LTE stick at Starbucks, so my expectations are high!

    That's insane. Saw someone get the same on the new iPad. Faster than their home WiFi!

    My home wifi is 30mbps. Not bad considering the torrential rain we have right now.

    Be prepared to be underwhelmed with my local VZ LTE's terrible upstream speed!

    Multiple tests with multiple servers and this is the best result achieved...

    Poor I'm afraid. Well in comparison to any ****ry who's government got their act together and acutely allows providers to sell off 4G real estate that is.

    Don't get me wrong the 19+Mbps DL speed from my HSPA+ carrier 3 was a truly positive surprise given Offcoms complete lack of interest in the next gen tech. However, given we are are broadband Britain I can't help but wish I lived in outer-nowhere-northern-sweeden where my new iPad would achieve a more respective-of-it's-tech 80+Mbps rate

    My AT&T sim works better in my Verizon iPad then the one from Verizon.
    AT&T speeds are consistently 3-7mbps up
    Verizon standing still just outside albany ny is very inconsistent.
    Best is 21mbps worst is 0.16mbps,that's right less than 1.0 Mbps in a city that is supposed to have 4G LTE. False advertising? Maybe. Even with the occasional 20 Mbps the average speed at the same location on the same device is is faster on AT&T's faux 4G. Beautiful device and I'm so glad my AT&T sim works in it as well.

    Why would you guys get 4G service if you don't even get 4G speeds? My 4S is getting better speeds then some of these I'm seeing...

    This was my first speed test. I don't have LTE in my area with AT&T yet, so this is what I'm getting on their HSPA+ network.

    That's a faster upload than what I have at home but not download. Still it's pretty decent for LTE.

    Good question as I was wondering the same thing myself. AT&T only has HSPA+ here not LTE. Maybe someone that does have an AT&T iPad with LTE service in their area can comment on whether or not it says 4G all the time, or also displays LTE in certain areas as well?

    Very impressed with the speed of LTE at three bars on the Bell Network in Edmonton AB, Canada. I get about 50mbps down. Have yet to try it with full bar service.

    If you have LTE in your area, the iPad will say "LTE" instead of 4G. All Apple HSPA+ devices like the iPhone 4S and new iPad will dispaly 4G at all times when you're in a 3G area. It's AT&T's marketing gimmick. So if you have LTE in your area, you'll see "LTE" in place of 3G/4G. If you're suppose to have LTE in your area, I suggest you go to the AT&T store and ask them if they have you provisioned for an LTE data plan.

    Mind you , that's with only one bar.

    I had better in Dollard des Ormeaux yesterday. Around 25 Mb/s Down with two bars.
    I'd love to get five bars!
