    Your At&t rep is right. LTE is purely data for now but it will change maybe a year or so. 3G for both voice & data.

This is why you're likely to see AT&T turning on LTE Advanced in some markets next year before they even finish their LTE system upgrade. I also know they're using multiple 10G links for back haul in those markets and they're looking at upgrading those to 100G.

    AT&T's typical strategy is to go where they get the most payoff with the smallest investment, which means large metros in descending order (minus testbeds). The price they pay is in the optics: their coverage maps look bad even though they can rightfully claim to cover the vast, vast majority of their customer base.
    Agree. At&t has $$$$ and the resources.

    The equivalent of Gigabit Ethernet over cellular? You're joking right?

    I noticed it Sunday night at work but keeps switching between LTE & 4G. But when connected there is definitely a difference.

    I got almost 60mbps on AT&T LTE in the Atlanta area:

    58.72mbps download and 27.29 upload on LTE. Only 30mbps download at home over WiFi (behind a DOCSIS3 cable modem).
