It looks like I have LTE enabled

My icon indicates LTE vs. 3G. Will send pics later. Does anyone else see LTE yet? Map tiles seem pretty fast for me but I just picked up my car today so no real experience to guide me.

Well this would certainly be exciting news! I'll look forward to seeing the pictures. Thanks!

And congrats on the new Model S!

When you get a moment could you take a picture of the icon indicating LTE?

*Cue the complaints from recent recipients that still only have 3G*

Just kidding. Well sorta. Congrats on the S. And congrats more on the LTE connectivity!

Pics, Last 5 digits of VIN, Details, What software revision are you on?

There is a small part of me that hopes that my 2014 P85D has it and will be enabled in a software update.

LOL, let me be the first!

Given the way cellular chipsets seem to be built to work in a variety of modes, I was hoping the hardware in the cars would be LTE capable from the beginning, but not enabled. I guess we'll see.

There was a rumor that cars being built March onwards will have LTE. If you are seeing it, then thats awesome! :)
What kind of Model S did you get?

If the hardware isn't already in there, I'd be very very surprised if it wasn't available at some point soon via a card swap or something of the like. There will come a time when 3G is decommissioned and Tesla can't deliberately design an internet dependent car without designing in a mechanism to offer an upgrade path.

It's one thing to sunset your iPhone. It's quite another to sunset your car.

Wow, just got pointed to this thread as MS is being built June 4-7 there (in production now). I'd sure hope we have LTE as it would make the next few years of ownership more enjoyable it seems, gladly pay for it in future when needed, etc.

Pics, and speed test would rock. I'm assuming it is still AT&T LTE which is usually pretty dang fast MOST of the time; except for at home here, at work, and around work, and at the gym, and around the entire 3rd largest city in USA - ok, never mind! ;-)

It is a big part of me and my P85D 63954 Dec 20, 2014 built. Hope!

I donno - Verizon still supports 1XEVDO. AT&T still supports GPRS. I would expect 3G to stick around for a while.

Thanks Korben, would be great if you can also tell us your location (country), and what kind of Model S you got (P85D,85D or 70D).
