Matt Galligan:

Signal will always be high, and you’ll always be connected to the “4G” network, so then the only thing that actually matters is how GOOD the network actually is.

And if you are around too many people on the same network, enjoy the ‘5 bars of 4G’ service that won’t load a single web page. It’s interesting that we have reached a point in network distribution that it is almost assumed you are connected, what is still wildly unknown is your connection speed — at least until you try using your device.
