    1.2-1.6 mbps with spikes at 2.0 via speedtest.net

    Actual download speeds are about 250-600kbps though based on true download times.

    That's about the same here (North FL) not very impressive for 4g & has nothing on the other carriers, but beats the hell outta 1x & streams all my video & goog music fine, so can't complain too much, considering i'm practically paying half of what I was on Sprint...

    Not true. I download roms for multiple phones and all drivers and recovery and all the goodies with my data connection. Though sometimes I do use Starbucks or other wifi if I'm near it.

    Check my rediculous (sp) slow connecting in homestead FL on a Miami based server. Last one is my highest ever recorded in Cutler ridge, a couple miles north.

    Oh... I have unlimited data so that there is an unthrottled 4g connection.

    Actually the top three are from a server in Miami but I get better speeds on the Tampa server.
    Miami is just swamped as far as I can tell.

    It won't give me the option for Miami, SoFla, or even Florida servers at all...the closest is Alabama...they have hundreds of servers in the Midwest though...

    Here is my latest batch of tests. The 4+ mbps tests are after modifying build.prop. I have almost doubled my speed by altering 2 numbers. The slower tests in between are the times I reverted back to verify the speed change.

    I will be posting a new thread in the root section on what to tweak to improve speeds. I also believe I finally fixed everyone's 4g issues for good :-D
