Wha? Why am I getting a LTE signal on my Nexus 4 using Aio Wireless? I'm using hybrid .33/.84 LTE enabled radios. As far as I know, Nexus 4 can only pick up AWS LTE? AT&T LTE is 700 Mhz. Strange.

Guys check this map out.  Shows LTE areas.  From what I see, its super accurate.

Only after 2 days, my affair with +Aio Wireless is done. Just couldn't deal with not having LTE, inconsistent browsing experience and data drops. Not sure if Aio performance issues are intentional (to differentiate the experience with traditional ATT wireless) or ATT airwaves are just too crowded. Aio might be a good alternative for people living in rural areas, but this service isn't for me.

I found that Aio didn't offer as much value as +T-Mobile . Aio service is single line , so there's no family discount. Also, Aio forbids tethering, which T-Mobile allows.

Where T-Mobile has 4G coverage, service is excellent. Their HSPA was better than Aio LTE service when I was able to connect.

+Aio Wireless LTE speed test. I must admit, getting a poor LTE signal and this is the worst out of the bunch (typical 3 mbps). Also getting samples where speed test fails to complete due to network errors.

AIO Wireless Trial - Day #2

Been performing side by side web page load tests between my Nexus 4 on T-Mobile and an HTC One on Aio. For the most part, web pages loaded quicker on T-Mobile. Although the difference wasn't that significant, its pretty clear that AT&T is trying to differentiate Aio from its traditional service by intentionally slowing ping times (never been able to get lower than 250 ms) and throttling. Tests been done with both devices on Hspa and LTE.

Other observations:
-I tried adding the normal AT&T APN to get better pings, but my HTC One would not allow me to do so.
-Aio HSPA is pretty bad during the day. about 1.5mbps.
-Aio LTE kept on switching to Hspa. Looks like I have a weak LTE signal where I work.
-I got the Smart Plan which allows for 2GB of full speed data for $55. The price includes taxes and fees.

Just popped in an AIO Wireless SIM into my unlocked T-Mobile HTC One.  Going to test out the service for the next month.  

Initial observations:
-High ping times (250 - 400 ms)
-HSPA Speeds around 1.5 mbps/3.5 mbps
-LTE speeds around 3-7 mbps
-General web page load are similar to T-Mobile HSPA+
-AIO Wireless You Tube videos took somewhat longer to start compared to T-Mobile.  In the order of 5-10 secs longer.
-Tethering works, even though it is explicitly banned by Terms of Service.

Any questions, give me a shout.
