    I have noticed when using the speedtest.net app that my old hero and my new epic will have different ip addresses. This is on 3G too.

    How are these assigned in the cell phone world?

    Why are they different when I am in the same place geographically?

    Is there a way to force them the same?

    The reason I ask is the hero is faster than the epic when going to the same server. On the Epic the same server that is the number one choice for the hero will be 5 on the list and a few hundred miles away.

    TIA
