It won't even make that much difference within the first few days! IF DLM is more aggressive initially it will soon restore any slight speed drop it might have made.

Do you mean 4G explicitly? I have a 3G MiFi unit on the 3 network and I can get 12-20Mbps in many situations for a fraction of the cost of 4G data!

I have only seen such (obviously DC-HSPDA) speeds on 3 up to now. I left Vodafone a couple of months ago over their pathetic 3G coverage (nothing to 3Mpbs max in this area).
