    Was just in new york last weekend. Didn't pick up 4g anywhere. Only pittsburgh had good coverage honestly, a few days before it actually launched. It is ok in philly, terrible in delaware, terrible in dc and va. I'm not very impressed due to the 2.5ghz spectrum. 3g was blazing fast in new york york at least.

    That's odd that you didn't pick up 4G anywhere in NY. I found it in lots of places, in all boros. But it really was pretty useless when moving.

    I only had it turned on around 26th and Lexington, central park (around 75th) and then in the lower east side. I was trying to conserve battery life, but didn't pick it up in those spots. I was getting 1700kbps on 3G though, which is the fastest I have seen, 2-4x faster than speeds around Philadelphia, so that was more than sufficient.
