    So what speeds have you guys been averaging? Also, how good are the LTE components in the 8X versus the 920?

    I'm curious to see how Bell versus Rogers LTE speeds compare.

    Verizon:

    28.69 Mbps down; 11.43 Mbps up.

    As to the LTE hardware, remember that all WP8 handsets right now have exactly the same LTE hardware. It is the on die LTE radio that is part of the Krait (Snapdragon S4) chipset.

    HSPA+ theoretically supports up to 84 Meg/s, so none of the figures posted above are LTE speeds.

    Yeah unfortunately Greekboy, I am sure. Like I said that is my average using the speedtest app. I have reached 17 Mbs down at times. But I seem to hover around 10 Mbs.

    That's still solid man. I could see LTE being more important when it comes to a tablet for myself as I use my phone for more basic things. I work for Bell and live in Toronto so I'm eager to try out LTE speeds with my next phone that I purchase.

    I came from using the HTC Trophy, 3G, so even the slowest speeds on LTE are blazing fast to me. I was very limited on what I would do on 3G, just because of the miserable experience. With still having grandfathered unlimited data and LTE, it has been exciting to use my smartphone since getting the 8x.
