Default Verizon LTE speed increase?

Has anyone else seen an increase in LTE speed with Verizon? I can now get in the 40/15Mbps+ around my house while it was below 20/20Mbps in the past.

They may just be upgrading capacity in your area. I can hit 50/20 in some good spots of my town.

In WA, depending on location, I can get anywhere from 10 down to 60 down.
Someone apparently went up to the great philosopher Wittgenstein and said "What a lot of morons people back in the Middle Ages must have been to have looked, every morning, at the dawn and to have thought what they were seeing was the Sun going around the Earth, when every school kid knows that the Earth goes around the Sun", to which Wittgenstein replied "Yeah, but I wonder what it would have looked like if the Sun had been going around the Earth?"

It also depends on the time of day at which you do the test.

I haven't seen speed increases, but my ipad has decided that it wants to use LTE despite being on a wi-fi network.

In the last month I have noticed an increase in signal strength from Verizon. This of course, affects speed and mode.

I just noticed yesterday that I now have 4G at my house, whereas previously I only had 3G and a weak signal at that.
