Galaxy S3 - How to tell if using LTE?

I got my new SGS3 and its fast.  But how do I know when it is using LTE or HSPA?  The notification bar shows 4G.   I'm in Ottawa which has LTE.

 

Did a few Speed Tests and the best download was 10 Mbps and worst was 2.6 Mbps.

You should see LTE in the notification bar. Did you check to see if your settings are on auto (assuming it's the same as the gsll LTE). Also, just because ottawa has LTE, you won't get it everywhere. Lastly, do you have an LTE plan.

Networkd mode is GSM/HSPA/LTE (auto mode).

I will call rogers and ask if my plan includes LTE.

I called rogers and I did NOT have an LTE plan.  So now I do.

They shoudl really tell you that when you pickup up the LTE phone.

Same here, the Rogers rep was very helpful. Helped me swapped my 6GB regular to 6G LTE in less than 5min. With same price and no need to extend my contact. I am now a happy LTE user.

Did you guys speak with retention or just a regular rep? I Just called and the guy told me it was impossible. He offered to downgrade my 6 gig to 1 gig LTE because de 6gig plan did not exist anymore.. bleh.

My fiance managed to get 10G LTE out of retentions for $15 more a month than he was paying. Sweet deal. He had the 6G plan before.
