    I am not getting anywhere near accurate reporting using the mobile app.
    Pings are higher and throughput is lower.

    Using it in a browser on the phone itself reports lower pings and higher throughput.
    It's also within 5% on a tethered desktop.. I don't think this app is working correctly for me at all.

    There is an update on the market that actually resolved my issues with it.
    pings and throughput are actually reporting similar results now on both the phone and browser versions.

    Sadly, one of the areas around me, that's about what I get too. I'm guessing it's network congestion here or something. There's another town in the other direction, less populated, and I see about double the speeds (usually about 2M down, 1 up)

    Waiting on some of the new markets to activate which are a couple hours away, so I can drive over and experience it firsthand. (and then come home pouting...)

    3g at my house I'm seeing 2.4Mbps download and 1Mbps upload speeds.
    With the wifi's(lol), using verizon dsl, I'm getting 12.6Mbps download and 2Mbps uploads. No 4G in my area yet damn it. From what I've seen so far (corrected values) 4G should be competitive with wifi.

    Yep, I tested all 3 radio networks yesterday night when I updated it. From central NJ to Newark, NJ server:

    3G: 0.48 / 0.90 / 167ms
    4G: 15.90 / 1.86 / 114ms
    WiFi (comcast w/ 30Mbps package): 15.59 / 4.43 / 73ms
    (Mbps down/ Mbps up/ Ping)

    I'm still getting huge download #'s after the update, like over 25 mgs. Not sure how accurate it may be.

    Here in orlando Florida I got 14.4 and 1.4. Ping was high at 243. This is when it works and LTE don't lock up my phone.

    I wonder why the speeds of different 4G areas are so much different?

    Depends on the backhaul priority most likely. Here in NYC Verizon's sites include 4-6 sectors. Each sector is capable of 73mbps. That's up to 440mbps per site. If you are alone on one sector, you're using that 73mbps sector, in real life that's up to 60mbps.
    It also depends on the server you're using for tests, as well as the time of the day.
    I suggest USB tethering for best results.

    Yeah, those speeds are what I'm getting on 3G between the 2 markets here that I'm between. If I go to my one location, it's averaging just about 1 MB down, and about .5 up. The other location is about double that. Then again, Location 1 is a slightly larger town with more population, so it's a traffic thing, I believe.

    Still haven't been to a 4G area yet to experience the goodness, but...soon!

    I keep this app in my Novelty folder, along with Talking Tom and the Star Trek Communicator. It's not unusual to have results vary nearly 10-fold from moment to moment, and certainly that's the case from server to server. Still, it can be fun to make the iPhone, Atrix & EVO 4G geeks jealous.

    I still get some silly results from the Speedtest App. The downloads match the speakeasy dot net browser test, but the uploads are wonky at 19 Mbps. Usually around 4.3 up.

    My download speeds average 26 Mbps. Peak times are around 13 Mbps, but that is only around 4:30-6:30.

    It definitely reads a higher download number than your actual download speed. I'm still not seeing 4G type download speeds when I attempt any downloading. Fastest I see is around 2-3 Mbps on a "good" 4G connection.

    Oh and I was prompted for an update yesterday, and then it asked me to do another update today. Anyone else get 2 updates in 2 days?
