So finally with my iPhone 5, and LTE in my hometown of Buttfuck, Alberta, I am hearing speeds close to WiFi is capable.
Without further ado... using an iPhone 5; 64GB, unlocked via Rogers LTE plan:
City of Edmonton Free Public WiFi at Callingwood Arena... for comparison sake and just because I happen to be spending a fuck of a lot of time recently there with hockey season in full swing now... 3.40 Mbps Download Speed.
|From the City of Edmonton free WiFi in Callingwood Arena|
From my house, west -end Edmonton; courtesty of Telus home Internet WiFi— The High Speed Turbo Package (advertised up to 15 Mbps Download speeds.. though I have yet to see those speeds but still better than the typical 6Mbps standard packages of most Canadian providers offer)...
|WiFi from my house...|
Same location on the Rogers network using 3G... 14.55Mbps Download speeds...
|3G from my house...|
|LTE from my house..|
