    This morning, I am able to get 1-2 bars of 4G signal in the middle of my office building. I am getting 5.9Mbps down and 1.0Mbps up.
    Woo Hoo!!

    Since Friday, I have gotten 4g in Webster, downtown Rochester, and in Irondeqiout (although very weak).

    Only gotten to about 3.2 gb.

    I live in Rochester, NY too. Tell me what this means please...

    Using 4G I did a speed test. The results were 2103 KBPS for download and 179 KBPS upload.

    Using 3G the results were 929 KBPS and 503 KBPS for upload, then I repeated it and got 945 for download and 183 for upload.

    Someone explain please...and thank you!!

    Hopefully having it in Rochester means it will be coming to Buffalo soon.

    Um...all of it? I dont understand any of this. Are those speeds good, bad, somewhere in the middle? Why are people posting MB and I'm posting KB?

    I did a speed test this morning in downtown Rochester, NY while at work and got 8.62meg down!

    In Henrietta at my house I have yet to get a 4g signal.

    - Download speeds are not guaranteed.

    - Download speeds are dependent on your proximity to the closest tower/antennae, interference with antennae, network congestion, and your device, et al.

    - Theoretical max on 3G (Sprint) is ~ 3Mbs (correct me if I'm wrong...don't have Sprint), where other carriers (T-Mobile) may have 3G/3.5G in the 7Mbs-21Mbs range (different upgrade path)

    - Theoretical max on 4G is ~6Mbs (avg, with peak/burst of 10MB+...again, don't have Sprint, but that is what is printed on the site)

    - Most people with a solid "3G" signal (multiple carriers) will average 600K-1.5Mbs

    - Whether or not any of your experienced speeds are "good" depends on your needs/wants/expectations. For instance, I have a 7Mb plan, and at my house, I avg. 930Kb...if I drive 3mi from here, I get 7Mb+.

    I see people posting Megabits (Mb), not Megabytes (MB)

    1 megabit = 0.125 megabytes

    So 6Mbps download speed is 0.75MBps per second.

    Yep, I have been using 4G in Syracuse since launch. It works at my apartment in Fayetteville but not in East Syracuse at the Carrier Plant.

    Speeds have not been amazing for me yet tho.... 1.04Mbps down, 0.15Mbps up.

    I am going to visit my Mom in Penfield- Webster area this summer and called and I asked Sprint if they have 4g in Rochester and they said, "No plans to have it there"

    What is going on? Is it there or not:rolleyes:

    LOL, oh I can tell you for sure it is in certain areas of Rochester as my EVO has picked up 4g signals in serveral places. The local corp store in Henrietta said it is being tested now but should be officially live by end of June/early July.

    Same here (go Sabres).

    Apparently Rochester got 3G before we did too. No worries, I'm sure it'll get here soon enough.

    The guys who sold me my Evo called me on Saturday and told me told me they were testing the 4G signal in Syracuse over the weekend with a official go live date July.

    I got a weak signal in my backyard in Fayetteville but am getting nothing now. I was not overly impressed with the speed. Hopefully they work out the kinks when it is official.
