From what I've seen posted on the subject it appears that very few AT&T markets use LTE on the Nexus 4 compatible frequencies, so success is not very likely.

The Nexus 4 does not have any LTE radio, and not compatible with any LTE frequencies.

 

So quite simply, no.  The LExus 4 will not work on LTE.

You'd probably get a better response on XDA's forums for a question like that.  I doubt that many AT&T customers have the Nexus 4 and even fewer of them (us) are interested in trying to make LTE work on AT&T.  The ones that are probably frequent XDA more than this forum.

Hmm, wasn't aware of that.  Can't follow every device that closely, of course.

The Nexus 4 supports LTE Band 4 that consists of AWS 1700 / 2100MHz. The large majority of AT&T LTE markets do not use these frequencies.

I know it sucks that Google did that. Now I'm debating whether I should update to Google's latest version or not update and try to see if the lte will work in my area when lte comes around

The Nexus 4 really doesn't need LTE as long as HSPA+ 42 is still available. Let's face it, not many devices will use 42Mb of data bandwidth in the first place.

Depends a lot on the network congestion, and data reception in your area.  I was getting around 1 Mbps (sometimes much less) at my house on HSPA+, to the point of being agonizingly slow and useless.  Sometimes the data connection would drop out completely.  Once AT&T switched on LTE, the data speeds went up to around 20 Mbps, and rock solid.

It also depends on the network and the backhaul type. All of AT&T's LTE sites are now fiber backhaul. They are upgrading the HSPA+ sites that aren't LTE too but that's ongoing. Most of the sites are upgrading to hybrid HSPA+ / LTE with fiber backhaul.

You're right, I saw the 8 from the 8 megapixel camera but it looks like the sale ended yesterday anyway back to regular pricing. I agree, T-Mo in my area isn't all that either. AT&T's network is far superior IMHO.
