Coworker friend of mine has the (new) Droid Charge (4G/LTE) and we ran some speed comparisons against my Droid X (3G).

My 3G speeds are routinely around 1.5Mbps and my wifi speeds are usually around 11Mbps.

Running a side-by-side comparison at the office, pretty deep inside a building utilizing repeaters, he is seeing 11Mbps via LTE,. That is some serious speed on a little handheld device. I'm impressed. In a market where 4G specs haven't been defined yet, I was assuming he'd be seeing in the neighborhood of 2-3Mbps.

It is impressive. LTE is a bit faster than WiMax, but still DAMN impressive. If my roommate wasn't such a little ***** about having cable I would just use my phone for the interwebs.

Verizon tested 4G in my area with no network traffic (before they announced LTE service), they maxed out over 30Mbps in the middle of the night.

Nobody is going to see that, but it is pretty cool.

My EVO kicks ass and it was the first 4G phone in the US.

Being a ' little hand held device' really isn't the stumbling block at this point in technology, its the infrastructure.

Too bad increased speed only means people hit their cap faster Id rather have slower speeds so that i cant ever exceed my limit ( well i don't have one personally, but eventually my plan will be killed off i'm sure )
