I can kinda believe this because when I went to New York about 2 months and some change ago, I was getting 8 mbps... in Manhattan of course. Maybe speeds are greater in the major/more populated cities because where I live, I barely get 512k. When I leave my area and head about 5 miles to the west, speeds are up to 5 mpbs.

I wanna see a screenshot. I just left L.A. less than 2 weeks ago and never cracked 5mbps down. Anywhere from 1-2 down on a slow day, 3 on average, and 4 on good days.

Agreed, I just hope they make better with better specs. The minimum type of specs i wanna see are along the lines 1.2 ghz processors with at least 1g of ram. Just like the Connect 4g. Lol

Okay looks like OP was trolling, I just got back to L.A. and did four speed tests. They were all within the range I specified earlier in this thread.

Agree. If they begin to introduce "exclusive" new phones they will have a lot of Attraction. And reputation. They just need to upgrade their line of collection and keep upgrading their spectrum.

first of all that app isnt the same he is using if u wanna call some1 out on their claims atleast use the same app he was using ive used that app b4 and never got the same results i got on speedtest, so which app is more accurate?? no one knows and no one can say! also notice on speedtest it measures by kila-bits and mega-bits which does that app use? dosnt say.

for example just did a speed test with that and its saying my upload its at around 8mbps lmao



in my opinion speedtest seems to be more accurate

What app was he using? I saw no screenshot posted to back up his claim, nor did his post state the app's name.

Also, I did my speedtests on both the speedtest.net app and the FCC Speedtest app. I just chose to post my results from the FCC app as the variance, if any, *in my experience* tends to be insignificant.


Edit: I just conducted one speedtest on each app from my surrent location (Westminster, CA) to "back up" my own claim, but looks like I got a bit of egg in my face.

Speedtest.net:

5.43 mbps up, 2.17 down (server in Irvine, CA)

FCC:

3.17 mbps down, 2.48 up (server in L.A.)

HOWEVER, that is still nowhere remotely near 9 mbps.

quite frankly both of them are inaccurate. they merely give you an idea of what you'll get and the numbers give you some bragging rights if they're high.

if you want true accuracy you need to surf the web or download a file(preferably at least 100mba) and see how fast you do those things.

my 4G speeds are as fast as my home network which is around 5mbps.

well such sites only allow you to download what they can afford to send u meaning speeds they can afford to upload to you. for example microsoft downloads on high broadband can go up to 3mb per sec other normal sites such as media fire dropbox are like 300-400 kb per sec im gonna do a pc tether speed test and see what i get.

You also gotta keep in mind where such file is being uploaded. Any files that is upload far away could affect the download speed ... soo it depends

I have a question if most carriers with 4g are on lte why don't we get the same speeds? I mean I just saw the iPhone 5 do a speedtest and they got 48 mbps of download and like 30 mbps of upload

Because they have more spectrum and spectrum is bandwidth and bandwidth is what speeds you get so in most places the big carriers have about 20mhz or more of spectrum and in most places we have 5 or 10mhz we have the money available but not that much is left.

I just did a speed test and got 6.08 mbps down and 4.40 up-in Westminster, CA off a server in L.A.

I was surprised because I usually average less than half of that, and prior to today I'd never achieved 5 down let alone 6!

Hopefully this wasn't a freaking accident and will become commonplace.
