While attending an event for the LG Nitro HD for AT&T, we noticed that AT&T's 4G LTE network was live and functioning to the tune of 20Mbps downloads. While speeds are sure to drop once consumers start making real use of it, we were still impressed since Verizon's network rarely touched upon 15Mbps in our tests when that network first was activated and equally under utilized. For the record, upload speeds were averaging a speedy 7Mbps after a dozen or so tests, which is rock solid. So while AT&T has yet to officially announce that LTE is available in NYC, let us assure you that it is. Update: AT&T points out that LTE service in New York is still in test mode, and would like it to be made clear that the LTE network is not yet ready for prime time.
