I just upgraded my wife from an Optimus V (IMHO: Excellent all around phone), to a EVO 4g. This was done last night, and I waited until this morning to start testing speeds, etc. The speed is dismal, and I am hoping someone can help me with improving it. Using Okla's speedtest these are my results: Optimus v (3g) D:1.66Mps U:0.72Mps and 152 ping EVO (4g) D:0.96Mps U:0.82Mps and 99 ping. EVO (3g) D:0.33Mps U:0.28Mps and 362 ping. These test are being performed in my backyard: I live in Palm Beach Florida (flat terrain) well inside the "outdoor 4g coverage", and 400yds from "indoor 4g coverage". Both phones have full bars. My friend's Galaxy's SIII on Metro gets D:10.66Mps U:6.72Mps and 162 ping, I had hopes to get something similar. I contacted Virgin this morning, and this issue is getting 'escalated'. Is this related to the Radio interface Resource shortage? Any help would be appreciated!
