Re: Any reports out in the wild With the premise of "covering cities coast to coast, blanketing over 90% of the US population," this should be a boon to Verizon's marketing folks. But as mentioned the resulta are going to vary depending on distance from cell sites, etc. but overall this has to be nothing but good for Verizon and it's customers.

Re: Any reports out in the wild For reference, I just ran a speed test on Vodafone UK in London (indoor, at my desk, using the Opensignal app on a Nexus 5X):

30ms ping

72 Mbit/s down

13 Mbit/s up

Not too shabby.

Re: Any reports out in the wild Yep.  Reminds me of a few years ago when my SP was told me I'd be getting 15 Mbps and I'd be lucky to get 8/2.

Re: Any reports out in the wild Yeah that's the difference between bonding 2 radio channels and 3 radio channels, as well as antenna arrays, etc. I believe 2CA can top out at 225-Mbit/s and 3CA can get up to 300-MBit/s, maybe more. That's fine for demos and whatnot. When this gets out in the real world we'll see what the actual averages turn out like.

Still plenty of mileage left in LTE though, even if Verizon might run short on bandwidth.
