I am embarrassed to post my speedtest scores:
361 kbps down
149 kbps up
Thank goodness I have a WiFi network in my house
6.12 kbps down
1.29 kbps up
I tried again and I got 1700 down and 1400 up
At home I'm getting (Houston, TX)
2991kbps Down 686kbps up
2935kbps Down 702kbps up
2939kbps Down 691kbps up
Getting 2.7ish down and 300k up. On 3g no "4G" although it does show the h+, but like i said in another post that doesn't mean anything
Yea the H+ won't mean squat until the backhaul gets completed. Although some people are going to think that this is their 4G speed
I'm a little concerned. I live in Portland and the coverage here has always been phenomenal, but all day I've been getting 200-900kbps down (usually closer to 200), 100 up, and 450-600ms ping. What could possibly be going wrong? I don't have speed test results for my iPhone 3 yet but I know it's faster- I'll probably get the actual numbers this evening.
Not sure if it matters, but my unlimited data plan got "accidentally" removed and I had to call support to file a ticket just to get it back. They temporarily gave me a normal 2GB data plan in the meantime.
Good luck getting your unlimited plan back. Your "Temporary" 2GB Data Plan may just be like "Temporary" Gas Taxes...
The Speeds on the Inspire 4g seem to be slower as of right now. But supposedly when the backhaul gets completed and AT&T turns on the "switch" it should get somewhat of a boost compared to 3g speeds.
If he had it previous they will return it many people got there's back
go to 4G Speed from AT&T - AT&T 4G with HSPA+ and LTE - Wireless from AT&T and over to the coverage map. then scroll over cities and it will say "4g" and you can click for a 4g map of the city.
Off the top of my head, cities listed w/ 4g:
The state of RI
and only god knows why: buffalo, ny
thats gotta be the worst map to find your coverage in the world lol
haha true, but the worst map is perfect for finding the worst coverage (for 4g anyways).
i though att was ahead of tmobile for h+? you gotta think they either arent far behind, have about the same, or possibly even more coverage.
edit: maybe i got mixed up, but t-mobile reports 100 metro's!
Sticking with subjective for another day or so. No speed test but my "nerd-o-meter" is clocking the wsbtv news app in atlanta as loading news stories at around double the speed as my iphone 3gs while regular web pages are only hitting around 10-15% faster....
Dont laugh..my "nerd-o-meter" is VERY accurate....lol
Best of three was:
Down town atlanta but 2 walls in to the interior of a concrete hospital building....
Alright, so when the backhaul gets completed things will speed up. But that doesn't explain why the hell I'm getting such terrible speeds to begin with compared to pretty much every other test I've seen... there's no reason for that here...
does it feel slow?
because my speed tests some times read slow speeds, but i feel no difference when im downloading apps or anything. At my AT&T store, i get about 1.5-2 mb/s average, but i load HQ youtube videos and flash movies with out a stutter or buffer.
I feel like the speed test apps are bogus...
Yeah, it does feel quite slow too. Also, if the speed test apps were "bogus", a lot more people would be noticing discrepancies. I can understand speeds looking unbelievably high in some cases for broadband - there's a few sites where I can pull 50Mbps on my Comcast connection, for example, but that's not a realistic measure of my typical speeds. However, the speeds for wireless are so comparatively low that the measurements should be a good representative.
I've tried the FCC and speedtest.net apps and even set up a mini-test on my own server. The apps don't often choose very good testing locations, but different locations don't change the result much for me.
Best of 5:
3.23 mb/s Down 380kps up
A couple other noteworth results:
3.14 mb/s down 360kps up
3.19 mb/s down 379kps up
The "low" numbers were
2.67 mb/s down 360kps up
2.23 mb/s down 100kps up
Interesting thread here: Post Your HSPA+ Speeds Here - | DSLReports Forums
Notice the guys getting 6-7.6mb/s downloads?
Also note the %50 theory...(ie if the radios set to 7.2 you get around 3-4mbs, when they bump up the radio to 14.4mb/s in march then you get 6-7mb/s).
I don't thing AT&T has any immediate plans to go higher than 14.4mb/s setting but i can handle the 6-7mb/s with peaks up into the 12s (if thats going to be the case)...
WI-FI download 3.11 Mbps upload 2.19 Mbps.... 4G 1.43 Mbps, 1 Mbps 0.10 Mbps...

Monterey Bay, CA
I read this on the AC Inspire forum which may help in determining when the backhaul is implemented....
If you go to Settings -> About Phone -> Network you can see whether you are on UMTS, HSDPA (or HSPA+?)
I wanted to bump this thread since ATT might have released some 4g today. The 4g network coverage viewer seems to be working on thier website now. att.com/network for those of you that don't know it. What speeds are you guys getting in the supposed 4g areas?
I don't have the Inspire 4G yet (I'll likely be getting it in a few months), but I was playing around with it in the Lancaster, PA AT&T store yesterday and downloaded and ran the SpeedTest.net app. I wasn't too impressed with the speeds. They were 3G speeds at best, averaging around 700kbps down and 100kbps up. The H+ icon was present in the status bar.
H+ 4 bars: 2207 kbps down / 387 kbp up
