    LTE: Typical download speeds of 5–12 Mbps and upload speeds of 2–5 Mbps.
    wait, 70 of us are going to be on a 5/2 wifi connection? eeek!

    heh, okay.

    Now if you got multiple WoW 50Mbps connections that would be pie... and cake

    imagine all the HD streams we could have going!

    There will be more than one LTE access point, and they will be used as a supplement. With Verizon's support we'll be able to have one or two dedicated networks for all mobile devices, which will alleviate the load quite a bit. Every year, there are more and more mobiles... remember, quite a few people connect their devices to the Wi-fi.

    We used around 7GB of LTE data in Vegas. That was fun.

    lol, they didn't cap it at 2GB?

    I mean 70x7 times 6 days = Verizon on knees

    @Fatcat, Verizon 4G LTE in the D usually benchmarks at 25/6 or higher for me when I am there.

    Slower or faster than the Vertex4?

    also, I was getting speeds from the link http://www.verizonwireless.com/verizon-wireless-4g-lte-mobile-hotspot-mifi-4510l.shtml

    I've seen 40/15 on LTE here.

    Same, evenings usually get around ~45/~16 LTE. It's quite an impressive technology.

    Very cool to see Verizon showing up. Those hotspots will be a big help.

    Rated speeds are what they expect people will be able to get once the network is complete and the vast majority of phones are on LTE rather than CDMA.

    Just like your cable local loop, if you happen to hit a tower with very few customers on it, then the backhaul will be less saturated, giving you much more available bandwidth.

    The LTE spec Verizon is using right now (with an upgrade in the future) supports up to 100/100Mbit.

    I've noticed that saturation in Ann Arbor has increased heavily. I got 25/5 typically when I first got this phone back in July, now averaging 5/2 typically.

    I've heard about the much-coveted mouse pads, and I think it'd be rather swell to get my hands on one, but I just picked up this and it's pretty awesome.

    Now we need prizes from NZXT, and then the prizes should fight then subsequently go out for beers together.

    Really, the only way to settle this is to arm two attendees with prizes from either company and have them fight to first blood.

    Two years ago we got chapstick thingys with the Yelp logo on them. They were apparently the best lip junk ever, if you're into that sort of thing.

    The Yelpstick was up there with the mouse pads that year.

    As a connoisseur of lip balm, I regret to state that the Yelpstick was actually not all that fantastic. Not a bad chapstick in a pinch, but leaving much to be desired.

    As this is quite relevant to my interests, what do you prefer? I really like Lypsyl, though I'd prefer if it weren't minty (love mint, not in chapstick), the Herbal Answer Blistex is decent, though not very long-lasting, and I've had pretty good luck with Burt's Bees pomegranate (it's great on my knuckles, too).

    I HATE lip stuffs. Can't stand the feeling. Get shivers just thinking about it.

    Yeah, I greatly prefer the Every Man Jack lip balm I currently have to the Yelp lip balm from 2 years ago. Real talk.
