    Verizon has been tweaking the speeds at home over the past day or so. I used to only get 2-3 bars of LTE (today has been varying between 3-5 bars with a current 5 bar LTE signal) and my speeds during the day were 10-12 Mbps download and 1-3 Mbps upload. So either Verizon has added more backhaul to the busy tower serving my neighborhood, or changed the alignment of the panels.

    This is my current speed at home after AT&T's carrier network update (14.2) today.

    Following your great idea here is my comparison between AT&T's LTE and their fake 4G(3G+)

    Thanks Charlyee. :) The LTE speeds here combined with my grandfathered unlimited data plan is the reason why I don't use WiFi too often anymore. Anyway, with a lower ping than mine, I wonder why your speeds aren't higher than mine? Unless you are farther away from the server than me... Here is what I'm seeing tonight using two different apps.
