When I got my iPhone 5 and tested its LTE speeds, I was hoping they were only going to be slow for me here in Miami (33133, close to downtown Miami) for a little while. However, five months later, they're still slow. Slower than 4G, in fact! Is anyone experiencing such sluggish speeds in their area? Should I mark the spot every couple of weeks for AT&T?

I've found that the speeds you see are greatly dependent on signal strength, if I'm at work, I am about 1/4 mile from an AT&T LTE tower with 5 bars and I will get 30Mbps+ download speeds but if I am at home with 4 bars I'll only get 6Mbps uploads speeds, which is slower than what I get with my WiFi at home.
