Default Motorola Atrix 2 network speeds

Hi, guys i am an OG Atrix 4g user, and I was wondering what kind of speeds you guys get withthe Atrix 2. In my OG Atrix i constatly get 4-6mbps and 7mbps when i run the test late at night, in exception for peak hours when i get 1-3mbps. Just post what speeds you guys are getting to see if there is a big difference if i switched.

Its the same with any of at&t 4G phones. Atrix, Thrill, GS2 and Inspire are all hitting the same. Some slightly faster some slower depending on location. At&t doesn't have the speed to reach 14.4 or 21 mbps yet. At least in non LTE cities.

I'm hitting around 9 down, so slightly faster but remember it has 21mps chip so it could get up to 13 or 12

It may just be a subjective comparison fail, but it seems to me the antenna is better on the atrix 2. I feel like I see less one or two bar situations and a few places (like my son's pediatrician's office) where I can get signal that I couldn't with my atrix.

Speeds I dunno, not really that much of a concern of mine honestly. I'm much more interested in a stable connection than an insanely speedy one.

U have the fastest download I've seen so far with at&t. The fastest I've reached was 7 mbps early in morning.

I've hit 10 down but can't break the 1 up limiter it at&t seems to have. I average around 6-7 in full bar 4g areas.

With your wifi on, you're testing the speed of your home internet service, not the at&t service. Turn off wifi and test again to see the at&t speed in your area.

The Motorola ATRIX 2 is AT&T's followup to their original ATRIX 4G. It won't differ much in terms of specs, but this would bring Ma Bell up to speed with more recent offerings from Sprint and Verizon in the Photon 4G and the DROID Bioni... Read More
