LTE speed comparison between Rogers and Bell?

Any recommendation or advise for LTE speeds between Bell/Virgin/Telus and Rogers? Which of the two is the better one?

I actually just switched from Rogers to Bell and tested both on my iPhone 5. Is it my imagination? But Rogers seems much better. Bell kept kicking me back to 3G.

There's also users saying that it's actually a known issue right now on the Bell network, although this is unofficial and unconfirmed. Any ideas?

Should I switch back to Rogers? Oh man, this is sooooo much hassle. Just trying to get some good LTE coverage. And I live in North York (Toronto) so it's not like I'm in some remote place.

I've had my iPad 3 on Bell LTE since May, and it's been pretty fast when I'm in an LTE area (unfortunately, I have no LTE coverage at home or at work). 25-30 Mbps was common.

My new iPhone is on Virgin, which should be the same network. I haven't seen more than 15 mbps on the iPhone though. I haven't had the iPad and iPhone with me at the same time to compare. Perhaps it's just that the network is getting more loaded than it was earlier in summer. 3G is pretty darn fast though, often getting close to 10 mbps, whic is pretty good in itself.
