Until you get into the demands of streaming video, if you're not really worried about latency, then 3G (assuming that includes the decent flavours of HSPA) is probably sufficient. Although I think you must be a very patient person because whenever I drop down to 3G websites can be very slow.
LTE should offer sub 10ms access times even after a bunch of timeouts have fired to free up network resources, 3G access times can get much longer as the basic access procedures are much more involved.
