I went from HSPA+ on a Galaxy Nexus (AT&T) to LTE on an iPhone 5 (Verizon), and the difference is very noticeable, at least in my area of the US. HSPA+ was alright but still felt like a cellular data connection. LTE feels just like I'm on a fast wifi connection. It's probably the lower latency that makes it seem like wifi, not just the faster data transfer speeds.

On a counter anecdote, as I've mentioned in the past, my Nexus S on T-Mobile with "regular" HSPA gets faster "4G" internet speeds than my Galaxy Nexus on Verizon using LTE, and latency seems roughly the same.
