Hey Mr. Ed, where are you from?. I live in Plano, TX, and I am wondering if I should be able to get those speeds. I stream everything from youtube using JetVD @ 720p and therefore U need true 4g speeds.
Why would people stream 720p video on a device with 480 vertical resolution (landscape)? Waste of data.
Color me jealous! My speeds at best which was a month ago was only at 4.6 mbps. This month it is currently at a glacial pace of .14mbps. Which quite frankly is unacceptable! I have contacted my carrier, who did troubleshooting and reset the network and assured me everything was fine. It is not fine. It is still super slow. I contacted Samsung, who had me do a factory reset on my beloved SkyRocket. It is currently rebooting and reloading all updates etc. If this did not remedy the issue, I am not sure what to do next, short of going to my carrier and demanding a new one.
I know it's a phone issue and not a carrier issue, due to the fact everyone else in the house has way quicker speeds than I do!
*ETA* after factory reset I am still at far less than ideal upload speed. .15mbps NOT COOL AT ALL!
What can I do?

Reason: info after factory reset
I've had my Skyrocket since first week of Dec 2011.
These are the LTE speeds I get consistently at my house in San Jose, CA.
Took this screen pic at work which is why there isn't an LTE logo under the 4G.

They just turned on our LTE within the last couple weeks.
This is what I'm getting so far, fastest was 32. This is more than fast enough for me. Its increased my data usage 10x. I really have to keep a close eye on the data now, as 500mb a month was about normal for me. I'm usually attached to a network. Since the LTE... I did 500mb in a couple days.
The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket is AT&T's version of the Galaxy S II LTE. As one can figure, the phone features 4G connectivity via AT&T's LTE network. It was among the first phones on the carrier's network to feature next-gen... Read More
