So that's how these people have been doing it. Man that's a lot of work :/
Sign up with Dropbox using my referral and get an additional 1/2GB on top of the 2GB you get for signing up http://db.tt/YbULMZX
The networks have improved I just recently got 10.2 mbps down 1.9 mbps up in the DC area. I usually avg around 5-8 mbps down
10.2mbps down? That's not bad at all. We're not seeing anything like that here but that leaves me looking forward to the LTE roll out. Hopefully the increased backbone will bring us all better throughput.
Not sure if it's the gingerbread update, time of day, or if they've updated the tower by my house, but I just got 5.94Mbps down and 1.51Mbps up.
I always wanted to have that ideal father son relationship. You know, where I get to see him for like eight hours every other weekend, and send checks to some woman I hate. -- Tucker, Red vs. Blue
Data speed tests are a red herring. What you should be looking for are real world tests like browsing speeds (one example). Non realistic speed tests would matter more if you are downloading 5gb files in 1 shot using your data plan instead of a free wifi source. The atrix has scored quite well in real world testing. "Pure" 4g is still also a battery pig to this day.
I don't know what happened, but somehow I'm getting:
Network: AT&T, 5/5bars signal
as reported by phone status:
Signal Strength: -54dBm, ecno: -3, rat: 3g
Mobile network type: HSPA
Server: San Francisco, CA
Actual: Folsom, CA
*edit* I'm not sure why the photo Speedtest emails me shows a difference :? but my the app on my phone shows 8.30/1.07. Not sure why image is 8.50/1.09. And what ~1400mi means, i have no clue :? also time/date is screwy too. It was 1830HR on 9/13/2012 when I ran the test.
Supposedly, I heard Sacramento, CA area is getting 4G LTE update. I know that Atrix "4G" is not LTE capable, but maybe the small shift of some users to the 4G LTE network is opening up the bandwidth on the 3G HSPA+?
I'm all confused with the different updates to 3G and 4G :P; lots of in-between stuff between 3G and 4G.

The Motorola Atrix 4G brings several firsts to AT&T's lineup, among them a dual-core CPU in the form of NVIDIA's Tegra 2 platform. The CPU is clocked at 1GHz per core, providing enough zip to match the HSPA+ connectivity and 4G download... Read More
