Can't wait to test out 4G! Now just need a capable handset... Hopefully my HTC One is on time for early next week... would be unusual for anticipated stock to arrive on time however.

Okay, so I saw a post saying 4G is not the same as LTE... is this true?

I suppose iphone 5 users go through a bit more battery while running on LTE?

As someone who's been using 4G since the iPhone 5 launched the difference in battery life is very little if any.

Interesting!

I have an iPhone 5 and just now notice that it has an 'enable LTE' slider that it didn't before. I wonder if that came in the 6.1.2 update or was activated when 4g coverage became available?

Anyway, I'm on prepay so no 4G for me. I was just wondering if switching LTE off will reduce battery drain somewhat? I know johnr says battery won't change much ON LTE, but what about off? In my experience, turning off radios you don't use prevents them from searching, which IS a big drain.

And if I do turn it off on the iPhone, will the 3G connection still be the DC 3G?

Doesn't turning LTE off remove access to dual carrier as well?

That is what I found.
