    My thoughts exactly. 7.2Mbps is screaming fast for a mobile device and WAY more bandwidth than needed even to stream HD video. My Hulu+ looks amazing even on the current 3G speeds. I know people always think faster is better but there comes a point of diminishing return.. ie... killing a spider with a sledge hammer. It's cool to say you did it.. but the same result as if you used a fly swatter.

    I'll pose the question: What would you use LTE speeds for that you couldn't do with 7.2Mbs HSPA+
    Point well stated

    I agree with this one, alot of my friends say and I quote "we had to settle with a android". I also think 4G is a little over rated, what's 4G gonna do for you when providers cap all internet usage?

    I hope Verizon does get the iPhone. That would free up some bandwith on AT&T.
    It will also bring back the reign of the iPhone being the most popular phone

    Rumors, Rumors, Rumors. *sigh* come on guys nothing is official till apple gets on stage and besides why wouldn't apple put the worlds most heavily used data phone onto the fastest network? It makes no sense.

    Your last sentence is simply not true. I know lots of people that do not like or want the iPhone. I love the iPhone and have had all 4 versions but if you read the latest sales numbers, Android is now outselling the iPhone. You might not like it but it's true.

    I wish Verizon would just go ahead and get the phone. Then we'd hear less speculation and rumors and all the people out there that think Verizon is ohhhh so much better than AT&T could jump over there, free up a ton of bandwidth for us AT&T users and we could all sit back and laugh when the influx of data usage slowed Verizon's CDMA network to a crawl.

    So will AT&T come out with 4G next year along with an iPhone supporting 4G? Even if they don't I'll be buying the newest iPhone 4GS/5 Tired of the slow 3G lol

    On a completely unrelated note, mods and writers, the Yahoo App just got updated to 2.0 and supports video... Going to test it out now. If it's awesome, that needs to go front page asap (since Fring/Skype let us all down).

    Update if anyone care ;-) It works, but I couldn't get it to work with the latest Yahoo Beta for Mac. Only Windows, maybe it's because I'm on the same wireless lan.

    I agree. All these people complaining bout how Verizon's Speeds are Much Faster then At&ts YET..non of them can Post a Speed test to show exactly WHAT speeds they are getting, AND as for Voice/Data @ the same time? COME-ON!!! Who is Verizon Kidding?. I MEAN What good would a Smart phone be IF..you can't talk n get directions or Talk an Forward a Business E-mail or fax or Text. GSM has been the standard in Europe for WHO KNOWS!! How long. Thanks but no thanks..I'll stick with At&t an I'll wait for the 6th Gen n See is It's Worth it BUT..for now..I'm Happy with my 3G, and will Be looking forward to HSPA Speeds Soon.

    Well of course. Apple always holds something back for the next phone.

    I could get rid of my home Internet connection and still have blazingly fast speeds when I need it.

    It still is the most popular PHONE. android only became the most popular OS.

    Has there been any legit surveys showing how many iPhone users would switch from AT&T to verizon once a CDMA model was released? I just don't see the bandwidth problem being resolved even a little by verizon carrying the iPhone.

    Honestly, I don't care about the fact that Verizon's network can't run voice and data at the same time; I just care about coverage which AT&T lacks A LOT. But then, I guess voice and data at the same time is also pretty good.

    Everyone is saying "who needs faster internet?" but you know we are all going to want it when it's available, especially here in America where we all have this "I consume more because I can" attitude. I am sure I wouldn't be bothered by faster load times. I know my home internet load times are faster than that of my phone. Near instant searches would not be something I wouldn't care about. If they increased the pricing by another $10/mo I might have a harder time justifying it though.

    When the capability is there, the apps that take advantage of these new capabilities will follow.
    Right now, 7.2MBS is sufficient.
    In a year or two, maybe not so much.

    However, we are talking about Apple.
    They will likely come late to the party, have an end to end solution, and call it revolutionary and magical.
    They will then proceed to make several small mountains of money.

    what would it take apple? install a more powerfull antenna?, shouldnt be too much bigger.. and throttle a few settings...come on, I know they probably have other big "more useful" plans..but I think it could be done fairly easily. Im hoping ATT rolls 4G out starting 2011, though it will probably be later.. I would use the speed for things like those 1GB apps, and streaming movies, I get hiccups/ pauses when watching movies sometimes.
