    Collecting Throttled AND Unthrottled Data Speeds

    ==========COPY TEXT HERE==============

    Carrier: Carrier Name
    Throttled: No (or answer yes if you have exceeded your monthly cap and the speeds you are posting are the throttled speeds for your carrier)
    Location: City, State
    Device: Make/Model

    3 measurements of each (in text)-
    Ping: time in milliseconds
    Upload: speed in megabits per second (Mbps)
    Download: speed in megabits per second (Mbps)

    Additional: Optionally include any other info that you think may be related to your speeds.

    ==========COPY TEXT HERE==============


    Make Certain your device WiFi is OFF (of course :)). You can use these apps to get measurements: Speedtest.net, Internet Speed Test


    Thanks to everyone who helps! This list will help others get a better idea of what carrier speeds are possible in different areas. Please make sure to fill in all fields. Do not post a picture of your speeds. If you have a comment or would like to address some else's post, please do so on the discussion thread. Let's keep this thread clean and on topic. Thanks

    Additional: Located 12 miles from the city center. Inside the city, we get blazing 4g, but at home where this is measured, we only get a constant 3g, day or night.

    Ping: 132ms, 127ms, 140 ms
    Upload: 0.13 Mbps, 0.10 Mbps, 0.13 Mbps
    Download: 0.34 Mbps, 0.62 Mbps, 0.55 Mbps

    This wasn't where I live, I'll post those tomorrow. Not worth posting at night because towers aren't congested and thus inflate real world numbers.

    Edit: New Data
    Throttled: No

    Device: Samsung Galaxy Nexus (4.2.1)

    Ping: 94ms, 116ms, 107ms
    Upload: 4.87 Mbps, 1.98 Mbps, 1.70 Mbps
    Download: 3.98 Mbps, 8.67 Mbps, 6.41 Mbps

    Pretty variable IMO.

    I've moved a couple of posts over to the Discussion Thread to keep this one free of chatter (as per Sepero's request in the OP).

    Thanks! :)

    Additional: These three are from various locations around the North Dallas, Irving, and or Garland areas. I can't remember precisely where, but as you can see, a couple of good speeds and some mediocre. But all better than the 3G speeds we were getting on Metro.

    As can be seen by the times, I did the tests all in the same place and one after the other.

    Additional: This area has High data speeds for the big 4 besides sprint. My co worker gets near 20.0 on Tmo. This was during peak hours on 3 different test servers (to rule out server lags). During other times of day the data speed is near double down and up with same ping.

    I'm in a high high coverage area. Throttled speeds are supposed to be 3G as opposed to 4G, but as clear from my results they are even slower than 2G

    If I call metro says they show I'm reaching speeds of..... Insert number here... I used ookla speedtest
