iPhone 5 LTE is Speedy

I have had the iPhone a week now and I am still amazed by the LTE speeds.  When you have full signal, this phone is blazing fast. I am a network geek and I work with a bunch network guys and our jaws hit the floor when I ran my first speedtest.

To be far we did not test it against a Verizon LTE phone, but we did test them against AT&T 4G HSPA+ and it crushed their 2Mbps down and 800k up. So far this is the best iPhone I have owned.

Final note on battery life. I have had it a week and I have noticed that compared to my iPhone 4 the battery does not last quit as long. At least that's my perception. When the phone gets low 8 or 9 percent the iPhone 4 would live on for hours.  The iPhone 5 doesn't quit have the same will for life and just keeps chugging away on that battery. To be far though I am running LTE, location, wifi, and I sill get a full day+ out of it. Really it barley noticeable to me but i did notice it.
