When it's working this is about the best I get
Well today was the best day 3G has been behaving for a while. It did not drop once, I turned off the auto sync data in the data settings this morning, dont know if this was the reason, feel free to try and report back.
I got 1.3 mbps earlier today around noon, which is the highest it has ever gotten. It almost feels as if the problem is fixed..
I've been getting around 1.4 to 1.9Mbps down and around .33Mbps up for the last few weeks that i've had the phone. I've got to admit i was getting a lot of 3g drops like everyone else but for the last 4-5 days its been pretty good with only one drop. I live in New Port Richey, Fl
I also only have 2 bars where i've been testing.
The best i have seen, sitting in my basement 2 bars.
I found that the speed test isn't very "stable." It all depends on which server you use. Wichita, KS always screws me over... Columbus works well.
1452 down and 441 up in Phoenix AZ
Just ran a test yesterday and clocked in at 1.18Mbps Down and 442kbps up. I did have some 3G connectivity issues when I first got the phone a week ago, but for the past several days I haven't had a problem.
I'm getting solid 1.3-1.9mbps dl and.4-.6mbps up. Have not had any 3g problems in Louisiana were I live.
Did VM GET A Big 3G Network Upgrade In CA
Went to Los Angeles for a trip and was getting speeds of
Download: 8.27 Mbps
Upload: 2.96 Mbps
Ping: 69 ms
I am new here. I am a future Vigin mobile customer and LG Optimus V owner. I have read alot of posts on here and still will take the plunge when my contract with other carrier is up. I wanted to ask if anyone on here is around the Toledo Ohio area and if so, what kind of call reception and 3g service do you get. Thanks
THAT SPEED IS NOT POSSIBLE! Theoretical MAX on CDMA EVDO REV A is 3.1mbps! (and even some of that is reserved for tower overhead)....
I'm in DC. With 3G on i'm getting 1.22 mbps dl, .70 mbps ul. With wifi on, i'm getting 2.92 mbps dl, .83 mbps ul.
In south cal, I am getting 1054 dl/674 ul on 3G and 6715 dl/1564 ul on wifi (in kbps).
on vacation in VA near DC, 2231 down / 806 up using the speedtest app via the Wichita KS server
San Francisco, CA
112-719 kbps down
60-114 kbps up
I did a few speed tests this week....
Charleston, South Carolina
Signal at my place where i tested is usualy 75%
First Test (done around 9am): 0.00 Mbps Down, 0.31 Mbps up
Second Test (done next day in the evening around 5pm): 0.00 Mbps Down, 0.33 Mbps up
Third Test (done the day after around lunch time): 0.01 Mbps Down, 0.36
Looks like they are making some amazing progress to their network!!!
Using Wi-fi: 3.32 Mbps Down, 0.36 Mbps up
I am also using the speedtest.net app, how can i post my results on this forum? I find the 0.00 mbps download result to be hilarious!
But hey, you get what you pay for, and tbh getting unlimited text adn data for 35$ is the best deal i think
To post the speedtest pics, did u guys root your phoen and install a screen shot taking app? is there any app i can use to take SS without root? i saw 1 or 2 but they had like 1 star reviews.
To post the Speedtest images, you need to go in to your Speedtest app, tap on results, tap on the one you want an image for and when it opens look up at the top right corner. You'll see a tiny envelope and a tiny trash can. Tap on the envelope and choose where you want it sent (I would choose Gmail... send it to yourself). Then go check your Gmail and there will be a link in there to the image file. Copy the link and then here on the forums use the Insert Image button at the top of the posting window (you see that option from a PC).
If you are posting from your cell phone, do not forget to wrap the image tags around the url link of the image. Opening image tag at the front of the url link, and closing image tag at the end of the url link. It should look like this except without spaces:
It's funny the majority of speeds are very close to each other, then you see these BS speeds some users are getting,and they only have 1 post total.

Here in benton city WA I'm getting this
