Great news!!! (Well... for me ^o^)
A friend came over and she has the Evo. So I tested out to see if I actually had a 4G signal in my house and I do
I ran some speed tests and consistantly averaged between 3mbps to 4mbps download speeds (During a couple tests, it actually hit 5 but dropped back down some before finishing). Now I'm really excited to get the Epic 4G
. It was great, it didn't flicker in and out of 4G much and everything was fast. And this was all with only 1 bar of signal for the 4G connection. I can only wonder what it would be if I had a couple more bars...
Unlike my Moment which whenever it switches into 1x/edge/2G, I have to literally stop doing anything data related first and then literally wait for it to switch back into EV/3G, on these new 4G hand sets you can turn the 4G off and back on. This means if I ever lose my 4G signal, I can simply toggle my 4G icon off and back on and it will be right back on 4G. Much better than what I have to do with my Moment.
Anyone else have 4G in their home?
