Who has ATT 4G LTE?
Happy with the data coverage, specifically in Cary, west of Kildaire Farm and Harrison Avenue?
Fast and reliable?

How about in Raleigh, west of Capitol Blvd. and S Saunders St?

Bonus points for other areas mentioned in and around Wake County....

This isn't a billing or customer service question. FWIW, all the cell providers can be accused of messing up customer relations....

I've had it for several months now and it's been good all over. I don't venture into Cary much but all over Raleigh from downtown to north of Wakefield, into Wake Forest, etc. it's all been great. Even at its slowest it beats 3G hands down.

Thanks, RDU.

I have Sprint and 4G LTE seems to be in the 11-13Mbps range.
Do you ever do a Speedtest of your 4G LTE?

Mike, you know me and know that I'm a geek. What do you think? Yes, of course I do

Around town I've gotten anywhere from a "slow" connection at 3-5Mbps to faster stuff, up to 20-25. I've even seen 35-40 at times even while in a moving car.

Yeah, it was a softball question....

I'm happy with LTE over here in the 513.

519 sucks in more than a few areas, sadly.

I thought I had posted this over the weekend, but I have been pretty happy with ATT since I changed to the iPhone 5 with LTE. Very fast and I have way fewer instances of the phone saying it has good signal but not actually being able to connect. I live in Morrisville, but its been pretty consistent all over the triangle for me. Not perfect by any stretch and Verizon probably still has better coverage, especially outside of normal areas, but all in all it is a real improvement. Now, I have a Sprint work phone and if you want to realize just how good ATT and Verizon are, use it for a while.

I live with Sprint, so while I know the offer is sincere... I'll pass, thank you very much!
Yep. Sprint finally broke my trust when they went for T-Mobile. I want them to invest in MY network, not T-Mobile's...

So it will be ATT or VZN, to the extent that I will buy Sprint out....

Mike, I know I've already given my 2 cents on my preference on networks but wanted to chime in on AT&T.

You may have read this but:

Raleigh-Durham International Airport July 2013 | RootMetrics

I can tell you that since I have contract companies providing development for my company I get to hear all the moaning about AT&T's terrible signal in rural areas, which must be in the heart of RTP.

EDIT: It appears that there is a November 2013 Test showing AT&T dominating the Raleigh, NC area:

I had not seen that site.
The coverage maps data might prompt one to dump cell phones altogether....
