    Worth it?

    I don't really perceive any deficiencies with the 3G I currently have, and therefore don't see a need to fork over $500 for the LTE upgrade. That said this is a common sentiment that people have prior to adopting any new technology i.e. "I'm fine how I am I don't need this fancy schmantzy gizmo!", call it the Luddite Fallacy -- so I am open to it.

    Thoughts/experiences appreciated

    I'd say get it. Faster connectivity with more range.

    I think the point is that LTE has a longer transmission range from the tower to the user, not that the car will be able to drive farther.

    More range means better coverage. Also, if you search LTE you mostly hear about map redraws. It's much more than that.
