    Could you share a screenshot of your speed test results with XLTE?

    I know it says 16mbps in the link, but my phone did hit 20, and I only had two bats of service.

    These speeds are all relative. Before LTE officially launched through a while after I could get 40-45Mbps down 10-15Mbps up average with higher peak. Don't get me wrong, these XLTE upgrades are nice and needed to keep up with growth, just not ground breaking in the speed area.

    LTE speeds are much better than that in Southern Louisiana... more like 50mbs down /10mbps up .

    I guess living at the edge of town isn't paying off for me. No increase in speed or coverage in my area of Sacramento...

    Not to say that the speed is "horrible" though.

    I'm in Westerly, RI (at work),Just ran another test getting 46.34Mbps down and 11.32Mbps up. This must be the new xLTE, as at home, I get 21.39 down and 4.13 up at home....

    Under LTE coverage at both home and work.....pretty cool for a area where about 3 years ago, at home, I had to use a network extender just to get 3g coverage (and at the end of my road was a white spot on verizon's coverage, NO SERVICE)

    Glad I have unlmited data....Used about 7gb last month, I am sure with faster speeds that trend will not slow down.

    I was in town earlier and ran a speed test but it wasn't that fast. I was inside, but I don't think that hurt much. I'm in SW Louisiana.

    Is Honolulu on that list? The link from Verizon's XLTE page to the list is broke. Right now I'm barely getting 3G speed 1.8MBps down, but a **** kicking 10.88MBps up.

    Btw, I bet the update that VZW pumped out last week was to turn on AWS in its AWS capable phones.

    P.S. We had some rain storms come through this afternoon, and I've noticed that internet gets wonky when that happens. Both mobile and cable connections.

    Ok. So Honolulu is on the list, but I am definitely NOT getting XLTE speeds. I can barely get LTE speeds at times. But historically, Hawaii has always been in the bottom when it comes to internet speeds. As for XLTE, it says Honolulu, but Honolulu is a fairly spread out city. I was on the east end near Pearl Harbor this morning and barely got LTE speeds. If I were to go downtown towards Waikiki, I would probably get higher speeds.

    How do I know when it is active for me? My town is on the list but I just did a test and it doesn't even get close to the speeds you guys are quoting...

    Does the cell indicator change to say "XLTE" or does it just say "LTE" still?

    LTE... So it will actually change to XLTE? Okay got it. Does the fact that I am running 8.1 Developer change anything?

    I believe XLTE is just a marketing term and isn't an actually technological specification. Similar to how t-mobile's faster HSPA+ became 4g even though HSPA is 3G.

    Yes. It is a marketing term. It sounds better than just saying AWS which is what it really is. It's just LTE on a different frequency band that allows for faster throughput. Kind of like the difference between 802.11ac and 802.11b/g/n; both are Wi-Fi just working in different frequency bands.

    Is there a way to tell (other than doing a speed check every so often) if you are connected via band 4 (1700/2100 MHz) and band 13 (700MHz)?

    More out of curiosity than anything.

    Had a sweet XLTE experience Saturday. Shot a video of my son's race, about a quarter gigabyte. Uploaded it in <5m @ 70mbps and sent the coach a link
