    What is the highest speed you've gotten on your 4G device?

    The highest I've gotten was 32mb/s down and 16mb/s up. Using the speedtest.net app

    EDIT: I've created a speedwave on speedtest.net if you'd like to join it. (http://www.speedtest.net/wave/fb2f5d2379263d67)

    I average around 121 mb/s down and 63mb/s up at night when the load isn't to much.

    You guys are kidding right? I thought 4g was like 6 Mbits per second max. Best I ever get with 3g is 1.5mb.

    We aren't, 4G speeds are very comparable to a modern cable Internet connection.

    40 Mb down 4G
    700 Kb down 3G.

    They are IF you're in an area with adequate infrastructure and low network load.

    That's why South Dakota 4G is best 4G. Low population density, and brand spankin' new tower equipment. They just added 4G to my college town of 5,000. A breath of fresh air considering you barely got 300 kbps with GOOD signal on 3G.

    That's surprising cause Minnesota 4G kinda of sucks. Alot of times I get around 6mbps (both in Duluth and Saint Cloud). Although it's improved alot in the last few months, it's still usually around 15mbps. Granted, that's in all honesty that is plenty of bandwidth, especially for a mobile connection. And I'd much rather have a consistent 15mbps connection on a larger coverage area than 40mbps that only covers the block around the tower.

    But all things being equal, I want one of those really fast 4G connections.

    I've noticed that in my hometown where I am originally from (Roanoke, VA) has way better 4G speeds and ping than where I am now. I (Wrightsville Beach, NC).

    Yeah 15-20 is more typical but you hit 30-40 every so often. Apparently that's better than people in more populated cities get. So I'm not complaining.

    Found some interesting info by doing a SpeedTest.

    FIOS- 16.6 D, 14.4 U (Desktop)
    FIOS - 24.4 D, 14.9 U (Bionic WiFi)
    LTE- 21 D, 14 U

    Funny how Chrome is faster on my phone than my desktop and my desktop isn't the slowest thing in the world. Could just be the drivers associated to my WiFi need to be updated.

    You mean 12.1 down and 6.3 up right?

    I don't test alot.. but out of the tests I've done my best is like 26 down and 18 up. I've hit that a few times.

    It's hard to say what I average because it totally depends on where I am!
