Wha part of dallas did you run your test? Im noticing the closer to downtown I get the better speeds I get. I live in Rowlett and was getting speeds around 3 down this morning. In mesquite im topping 4.2. Lakewood area I hit 4.5 once. Im wondering if the "4g" is only live in the downtown area and the suburbs are on the fringe?

Using the browser on the Atrix gives consistent speed tests over the app.

AT&T has not turned on enhanced backhaul yet which is why we are not seeing above average speeds. At the same time, When i play HQ youtube, I never need buffering, when I download apps, I noticed it downloading much faster, and I can play pocket legends with no lag what so ever. I never thought those speed tests to be accurate but who knows really.

As long as im getting good speeds in general and am not having to pay more for "4g" then im good. (but i know this might not be the case for everyone here)
Easy to tell by looking at your ping times. There is NO way you are going to get that fast on HSPA+, in fact, the ping times above are quite scary.

Please post your ping time as well as raw up/down speeds. One is useless without the other.

I'm able to get 15/5.5 at work on Wifi.

I get about the same on my desktop.

Probably your router or wireless settings.

I wonder if AT&T did something to cap the speeds recently. I pulled out my old N1 and looked at the history of my speedtests. On 2/14/11 I got 2996 down and 1335 up, on 2/20/11, 2785 down and 1253 up...today 3345 down and 339 up. Ran it a second time and got 3119 down and 304 up.

My N1 was flying on upload speeds and now all of a sudden I am capped. WTF?

The fastest for me was 4.5megs down. But I've been getting 1.5 on a consistent basis. Im in Houston but streaming youtube or watching flashed based content on webpages have been rather snappy despite 1.5 speedtests. My iphone 4 was never this fast.

Iphone is provisioned differently than atrix. You either don't have hspa+ or your phone is provisioned WRONG.

Or there's other problems like different towers, leaving it in a lead box, etc... Too many unknowns over the internets!

I'd be calling ATT ASAP!

I've been getting as high as 3.8mbps today. Top speed I'd ever received before with iPhone, Nexus One, or Dell Streak was 3.5. The speedtest.net app has become basically useless for me for some reason it triples my ping times and shows my download speeds as 300kbps. If AT&T would just turn on HSUPA I would be perfectly happy with my service.

My uploads average around .35. Good compared to some that I've seen buy my iPhone 4 and Streak were getting an average of 1.5mbps. I really hope AT&T does something about the upload speeds soon.

Neither Moto or AT&T are saying anything about these crippled uploads speeds. I hope that the petition that I started works....

AT&T's HSPDA+ is a joke, as is their "4G".

You can blame T-Mobile into forcing At&t into calling HSPDA+ "4G"
At least they will go LTE by years end

Although I posted this in the Atrix in Canada thread, thought I'd put it here too:

I tested the Atrix speeds on the telus network in Burlington, ON and got:

1st test
2.93mbit down
0.34mbit up
331ms

2nd test
4.52mbit down
0.34mbit up
1834ms

3rd test
3.31mbit down
0.32mbit up
193ms

You using the application or going to an actual speed test site?

Try going to Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test or Homepage of Speakeasy* - The Powerful, User-Friendly Computational Software to Solve, Create, Explore and run a test since the Atrix has flash.

I have great downloads I normally average anywhere between 2.5 to 4.5 down load up loads still suck at 300kbs on upload.

I actually use multiple apps to do these speed test..the most accurate one IMO is speakeasy (the website).

How do you know that speakeasy is the most accurate?

I'm just curious as different speed testing sites use different methods for testing. Some will use a single socket, some will use multiple sockets. Some a combination based on ping times, etc....

The best test would be a two part test:

  • Atrix to the radio tower bandwidth
  • Radio tower through the landline backhaul
Ok, maybe 3. Backhaul internet drain to the destination Most of these "speed tests" are testing all 3 as 1.

Keep them coming! Looks like the ATT network has high ping times, but the telus network seems to be a lot better!

San Francisco, CA

the most I got around 3.26 - 1.16Mbps UP, and 0.24 - 0.42MBPs DOWN,
no a big problem for me when using this phone but I found that I normally get higher speed in early morning or late mid night when not many people are using their cell phone

You have to root your device and then install an app called "screenshot" .

Thanks. I'll hold off on that. Haven't had it a week yet. I did find that I can email the results to myself on the speedtest.net app and then upload the pix to truck forums I'm on.

Is there anything I can do to improve my speeds? Does rooting it help or something cuz it doesn't seem like it would from what I've read about it.

3235 / 357 in Clemson, SC using Atlanta, GA server

My home internet is 1.5mbit so I'm completely happy with this. Also, my friends on Verizon struggle to get 800kbit in this area. I will have to try it on my gf's iPhone 4 soon, for comparison.

I'm in a 4G area and the menu always shows H+, although usually only two bars. I can't get internet radio stations to play without constantly stopping for buffering, so I suspect there is something wrong. I never have problems with voice calls, however. Using speedtest.net and a local server (35 miles) for three tests I get:

0.59 Mbps down, 0.06 Mbps up
1.28 Mbps down, 0.07 Mbps up
0.39 Mbps down, 0.09 Mbps up

Using the next closest city (266 miles) I get:

0.99 Mbps down, 0.08 Mbps up
1.30 Mbps down, 0.13 Mbps up
0.95 Mbps down, 0.09 Mbps up

Are those decent for an Atrix in a 4G area? Or should I take it back and throw it at the people behind the counter?

Everyone is forgetting to post latency. Honestly, you can't compare speeds without this important piece of information.

OK, I just ran the tests again at 5:30 pm. The first set of three are at a local server 35 miles:

0.53 Mbps down, 0.87 Mbps up, ping 296 ms.
0.38 Mbps down, 0.92 Mbps up, ping 356 ms.
0.92 Mbps down, 0.10 Mbps up, ping 309 ms.

And from the next closest city, 266 miles away:

0.00 Mbps down, 0.10 Mbps up, ping 347 ms.
0.30 Mbps down, 0.13 Mbps up, ping 97 ms.
0.51 Mbps down, 0.12 Mbps up, ping 222 ms.

I should add that the first time I ran the tests this time speedtest.net (the app from the marketplace) said it couldn't even find the network. After several additional tries, waiting five minutes or so in between, I was finally able to get the above results.

And I still can't get a streaming radio station, even a local station with server right here in town, to stay connected for more than about five minutes without going into buffering.

The above is pathetic, but it is 5:30 pm. I'll try again late tonight and post if I get better results.

OK, I posted above the results at 5:30 pm. Here are later results.

Local server, 35 miles, 8:15 pm:
1.41 Mbps down, 0.07 Mbps up, ping 262 ms
1.08 Mbps down, 0.07 Mbps up, ping 308 ms
1.18 Mbps down, 0.07 Mbps up, ping 309 ms
Another city, 266 miles, 8:15 pm:
0.44 Mbps down, 0.08 Mbps up, ping 176 ms
0.47 Mbps down, 0.07 Mbps up, ping 298 ms
0.55 Mbps down, 0.06 Mbps up, ping 7 ms

Local server, 35 miles, midnight:
1.30 Mbps down, 0.13 Mbps up, ping 447 ms
1.13 Mbps down, 0.15 Mbps up, ping 8 ms
0.82 Mbps down, 0.13 Mbps up, ping 302 ms
Another city, 266 miles, midnight:

0.51 Mbps down, 0.10 Mbps up, ping 275 ms
0.40 Mbps down, 0.07 Mbps up, ping 416 ms

These still seem pathetic to me.

I just ran the speakeasy.net speedtest via flash and got 3.64/.31 and 4.25/.34
The downloads are about the same as my girlfriend's iPhone 4, but the uploads are much slower.

I'm curious as to the latency (ping time)?

The speeds we see on the SpeedTest app are defently off. It could just be that the app itself is glitchy because when i ran the SpeakEasy.Net test my results were more on average of above 3+ Down and .30 Up.

Speakeasy.net works on my laptop, but on my Atrix 4G I get the error that it requires Flash. That is with either the standard browser or with Opera Mini. I thought Flash was installed by default.

Edit: OK, Flash was not installed, so I installed it. But speakeasy.net still says I need to update my browser, both with the default browser and Opera Mini.

Edit: OK, had to enable Flash in the browser settings. Here are the results from Speakeasy.net at 9 am:

0.53 Mbps down, 0.11 Mbps up
0.79 Mbps down, 0.10 Mbps up
0.26 Mbps down, 0.11 Mbps up

Speakeasy.net does not give me a ping time. Also, I had to use Seattle, which is the closest city listed at speakeasy.net, which is the same city as I used as the second city in my tests above (266 miles).

I don't see any appreciable difference in my results from speedtest.net and speakeasy.net. My speed still sucks.

Speakeasy site doesn't do latency, but I typically get 250 or so ms from the Speedtest.net app.

Well, the long and annoying chapter of my travails with the Atrix 4G are over. This afternoon I returned it.
