Default Post your Speed Test results here!

I think it would be nice to get a collection of speed tests/location of speed test results to see how backhaul is progressing.

My Speed tests on my Dell Streak in Fremont, CA using a hacked modem is getting 1.9 down, 1.2 up (thats 3g though) Will post 4g tests in a bit to compare

on a side note, how do the servers you connect to work? I get faster speeds when i connect to LA (350 miles away) than i do palo alto (30 miles away)

Will be curious if anyone in an improved backhaul area gets faster upload speeds.

On a side note, my iPhone got 2.2 down, 1.3 up a little while ago, which is about average for me here in CT.

Not to sound like a nooB but seeing I am "semi" new to Android, what app can I use to tell me the speed?

You download it through your "Market" app, on the main screen.

Just tried mine (Wifi off) and got 1.7M down and 307k up.

Tried it a second time and got 2.5M down and 326 up!

Which is exactly what you'd expect with hsupa being disabled.

Root the phone and install a rom that doesn't have it disabled.

Edited to add, it's just the upload speeds that are the prolem. Your download speeds are fine, just don't have the improved backhaul for "4g" speeds yet.

the H+ means there is a 4G connection AVAILABLE. An up and down arrow means you're connected to it.

AT&T has stated that anywhere you can receive a 3G signal, you'll also get 4G (H+)

But does that icon change? I am curious what happens when I take this phone to Tokyo in a few weeks, if I get the H+ logo considering neither of the providers I will roam with (NTT, Softbank) have a 4G backhaul network that I know of that will seem a bit odd.

I would be curious if like on my old iPhone I could switch 3G on and off, a toggle switch for 2/3/4G so I can compare speeds.

I've never seen the icon change from H+ but I do live in a major metro area so maybe its telling the truth :P

I don't want to get off topic. But I did notice the shaded up down arrow means 4G is available (which mine shows). How do I get it to connect?

hmm, I remember MarcMaiden posting a picture of user manual that explains all the pictures. I believe arrows mean it's already connected...

They probably won't until 3/1.

As it stands now, it's much slower up compared to an iphone4 due to the disabled hsupa.

It does change. I seen mine switching between networks. I saw an (E) for a few seconds. I live in rural area. I found out the arrows only show in white when data is being received or sent.

Yea the H+ won't mean squat until the backhaul gets completed. Although some people are going to think that this is their 4G speed

I'm a little concerned. I live in Portland and the coverage here has always been phenomenal, but all day I've been getting 200-900kbps down (usually closer to 200), 100 up, and 450-600ms ping. What could possibly be going wrong? I don't have speed test results for my iPhone 3 yet but I know it's faster- I'll probably get the actual numbers this evening.

Not sure if it matters, but my unlimited data plan got "accidentally" removed and I had to call support to file a ticket just to get it back. They temporarily gave me a normal 2GB data plan in the meantime.

Good luck getting your unlimited plan back. Your "Temporary" 2GB Data Plan may just be like "Temporary" Gas Taxes...

The Speeds on the Inspire 4g seem to be slower as of right now. But supposedly when the backhaul gets completed and AT&T turns on the "switch" it should get somewhat of a boost compared to 3g speeds.

go to 4G Speed from AT&T - AT&T 4G with HSPA+ and LTE - Wireless from AT&T and over to the coverage map. then scroll over cities and it will say "4g" and you can click for a 4g map of the city.

Off the top of my head, cities listed w/ 4g:
North cali
Bay area
LA
Dallas
Houston
Chi-town
Charlotte
B-more
The state of RI
beantown
and only god knows why: buffalo, ny

haha true, but the worst map is perfect for finding the worst coverage (for 4g anyways).

i though att was ahead of tmobile for h+? you gotta think they either arent far behind, have about the same, or possibly even more coverage.

edit: maybe i got mixed up, but t-mobile reports 100 metro's!

Sticking with subjective for another day or so. No speed test but my "nerd-o-meter" is clocking the wsbtv news app in atlanta as loading news stories at around double the speed as my iphone 3gs while regular web pages are only hitting around 10-15% faster....

Dont laugh..my "nerd-o-meter" is VERY accurate....lol

Best of three was:
1453kbs up
320kbs down

Down town atlanta but 2 walls in to the interior of a concrete hospital building....

Alright, so when the backhaul gets completed things will speed up. But that doesn't explain why the hell I'm getting such terrible speeds to begin with compared to pretty much every other test I've seen... there's no reason for that here...

does it feel slow?

because my speed tests some times read slow speeds, but i feel no difference when im downloading apps or anything. At my AT&T store, i get about 1.5-2 mb/s average, but i load HQ youtube videos and flash movies with out a stutter or buffer.

I feel like the speed test apps are bogus...

Yeah, it does feel quite slow too. Also, if the speed test apps were "bogus", a lot more people would be noticing discrepancies. I can understand speeds looking unbelievably high in some cases for broadband - there's a few sites where I can pull 50Mbps on my Comcast connection, for example, but that's not a realistic measure of my typical speeds. However, the speeds for wireless are so comparatively low that the measurements should be a good representative.

I've tried the FCC and speedtest.net apps and even set up a mini-test on my own server. The apps don't often choose very good testing locations, but different locations don't change the result much for me.

The "low" numbers were
2.67 mb/s down 360kps up

Interesting thread here: Post Your HSPA+ Speeds Here - | DSLReports Forums

Notice the guys getting 6-7.6mb/s downloads?

Also note the %50 theory...(ie if the radios set to 7.2 you get around 3-4mbs, when they bump up the radio to 14.4mb/s in march then you get 6-7mb/s).

I don't thing AT&T has any immediate plans to go higher than 14.4mb/s setting but i can handle the 6-7mb/s with peaks up into the 12s (if thats going to be the case)...

I read this on the AC Inspire forum which may help in determining when the backhaul is implemented....

If you go to Settings -> About Phone -> Network you can see whether you are on UMTS, HSDPA (or HSPA+?)

I wanted to bump this thread since ATT might have released some 4g today. The 4g network coverage viewer seems to be working on thier website now. att.com/network for those of you that don't know it. What speeds are you guys getting in the supposed 4g areas?

I don't have the Inspire 4G yet (I'll likely be getting it in a few months), but I was playing around with it in the Lancaster, PA AT&T store yesterday and downloaded and ran the SpeedTest.net app. I wasn't too impressed with the speeds. They were 3G speeds at best, averaging around 700kbps down and 100kbps up. The H+ icon was present in the status bar.
