Walked in and just said i was looking for Hero accessories. The store manager started talking with me so I tried to dig for info. She said she doesn't (supposedly) know anything about pricing or firm availability, and also doesn't know anything about the April 16th marketing thing that many of us believe will happen. None of that is shocking, even if she did know something I wouldn't expect her to tell someone from off the street. She just said she doesn't believe anything that doesn't come from HQ, especially not the intertrons. I expressed my concern that I was currently in a gap of 4G in Houston and asked if they would continue building out or just move on. She said they'd definitely continue expanding coverage over the market and especially in the particular area of town I'm in (dense population, affluent area). So that's good, but I take it with a grain of salt. I then asked to see a demo of the 4G speeds on their laptop with wifi. Honestly wasn't really impressed. I pulled up the HD youtube preview of '2012' and while the stream only needed to be buffered once, I was sort of hoping for more lightning quick downloading. I think its because their whole store runs on that one 4G connection or something and that will bring the speed down. Another employee came up and told me that they have a 4G tower actually on top of their store and that the main MIFI device was currently getting 3.5 GIGAHERTZ PER SECOND of download speed, and that with a 4G connection I should expect somewhere between 70-80 mb/s speeds...uhhh what? I had my Hero on me of course, so I asked if I could get on their network and check it out so he gave me the password. This is where it gets interesting. I have an app called 'Speed Test' that does ping, DL and UL speeds. Heres the results: On the 4G Demo network: Wifi 4G Ping (ms) DL (kbps) UL (kbps) 1 1611 413 725 2 1148 468 654 3 1001 616 615 AVG 1253 499 665 Walked outside and tested 3G... 3G Ping (ms) DL (kbps) UL (kbps) 1 231 320 550 Walked into Bestbuy to play with the iPad and they had wifi so...
