Today the Galaxy Nexus launched on Verizon Wireless. While you have been able to purchase an unlocked version to use on AT&T for a month now, this is the first 4G LTE Google Nexus phone.
The Verizon 4G LTE speeds are incredibly fast, and now that the high-speed wireless network covers more than 200 million people, there’s more reason than ever to purchase a 4G LTE phone like the Galaxy Nexus. This was one of the biggest reasons Adam Mills decided to purchase the Galaxy Nexus.
Galaxy Nexus 4G LTE Speed Test
In the video below, you can see the 4G LTE speedtest for the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon in Findlay Ohio. This 4G LTE coverage was just added, and these speeds are even slower than some I have seen on my ThunderBolt and other review devices.
These speeds — 11 Mbps down and 10 Mbps up will vary from location to location, but if you have 4G LTE coverage you can expect similar speeds.
Compared to the iPhone 4S, the Galaxy Nexus is blazing fast. Check out the iPhone 4S vs. the Droid Bionic with 4G LTE, which offers the same speeds as the Galaxy Nexus.
