    Tower congestion on Verizon is evident where I live. LTE during the day is usually between 3mbps and 6mbps down and about 5mbps up.

    I would also suggest links to carrier coverage so ones wanting to make the (that sux, I would switch, something wrong with your phone) comments can see location coverage of the responder. I say this because I live in a very rural area and border on good and not so good coverage. In the city of Columbia my speed data is blazing on 4G :D

    @Arrowslinger
    That's a good idea. I created this second thread after I saw your post because I thought to myself, "Holy crap, that's really bad for t-mobile unthrottled. There's definitely more to that story." :p

    I added an "Additional" field on the other thread, so if you want you can go back and put that info in to clear things up. ;)

    I get 7-10Mbps down almost always on T-Mobile in Seattle and I've seen peaks of double that.

    Thanks Sepero I added an image of my coverage into my post.

    We should make it a rule that you're forbidden from posting on this thread until you've posted your stats on the main thread. (joking) :p

    Seriously though, if you get a minute to run the tests, we really want to see everyone help out with this. We all benefit. Cheers

    Will do, but it will probably be tomorrow because I'm not in my normal area today to do the tests.

    That's even better. You can upload results from two different locations

    Thanks a lot. This totally isn't a "my speed is faster than your speed thread". Instead, it's for all of us to gain knowledge, all areas, and make better decisions when choosing a carrier. :D

    Yeah, i'm not surprised the speeds are terrible because this is a pretty rural area.

    Just added numbers for where I normally am.

    That's 4G?

    No way that can be 3G lol if I'm lucky I can barely pull 1MB on 3G. Don't live in an lte area :(

    Yeah. My 3G speeds are around 1-2Mbps down and 0.5-0.7Mbps up. The speeds recently went higher in my area. I used to peak at around 6Mbps up on WiMax and 0.8-1Mbps on 3G.

    And dang.. that's rough. Do you know if you'll be getting LTE anytime soon?

    The highest 4G speeds I think I've seen before were about 24Mbps, on Verizon network.

    Back during the infancy of Verizon's LTE network, when barely anyone had LTE phones, I was able to pull in a test result of 35 Mbps down. Now I'd be lucky to pull in 10 Mbps due to tower congestion. :rolleyes:

    Nah I'm on 4g. I cant seem to get 3g anywhere. Either 4g or 1x. :(

    I don't think my numbers should be taken into consideration. My area has high data speeds for the big 4 besides sprint.
