    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.

    I have not seen any speed improvements in the Phoenix AZ area.

    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.

    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.
