I had the upgrade installed in my 2014 Model S last December (2015). Highly recommended! Speed of map updates is improved, especially in weak signal areas. Overall coverage is notably better as well.

Definitely needed.  Let's keep up with technology.  3G is so outdated and way too slow.

I have testet the speed. It is 3G+. More than 20 Mbit

Even with a faster network connection the browser is still terribly slow. Try it when on wifi. A faster network won't solve all the problems.

This is said to be done on newer cars but I don't know where I heard it. I think at the Nvidia event.

Until it's implemented in the car, you can use your hot-spot in your LTE phone and connect to it via WiFi in the car.  Hope you have a big data plan :)

Seems like we've been asking for this for quite a while  -  now Verizon has announced and even faster service called XLTE. It's the latest advancement of Verizon's 4G LTE network: double the 4G LTE bandwidth.

Agree...a car this progressive should not be 3 years old in its offerings for connectivity.  I would think a lot of us use Android phones and have 4G/LTE connectivity.  If we could get that on the Model S, it would be appropriate and way past time!

I support upgrading as 3G is just too slow.

It makes the Tesla seem old.
