    So the FCC recently released an Android App called FCC Test. It's a mobile broadband testing application to judge the internet speeds people are receiving on their phones. It's going to help them determine what the country has for mobile internet access.

    You can find the app through the marketplace, just search for "FCC" and it'll show up.

    I was curious if my speeds were up to par to other users.

    Please list the following:

    Speed in kbps (changed under Settings)
    What you're running on your Sprint Hero, ie, Stock, Rooted with what ROM, etc.

    Only include your cell's internet connection, not WiFi.


    For instance, mine is:

    444kbps Download
    282kbps Upload (225kbps on a past test)
    268ms Latency

    I'm in Portland Oregon and my server was in Seattle Washington (not sure how relevant that information is, but I'll include it) and I'm on 3G.

    Running DamageControl 1.0 2.1 build.


    I'm really curious to see if stock users are getting faster speeds, since this seems a little slow to me.

    Used the Dallas Server, as it said that was the closest one to me, even though I'm in Navarre Beach, FL right now.

    Wow, this is a very vast difference in speed results, even from the same servers. I wonder why that is.

    Better times generally mean better coverage, or fewer competing users / applications, or both. But other factors could also exist.
