    Suddenly my TB is back to human-capacity DL and UL speeds. I live in a four-bar 4G area in Boston and was getting the absurd 15-20 mbps that everyone else was.

    Suddenly, my data seems to cap at 5 Mbps DL and UL and then drop during speed test. I am not throttled as I have used under 3GB this month.

    I attempted a oneclick root that didnt seem to work, as I cannot use Superuser, etc. Could this be a cause?

    Anyone have my experience?

    I work in Cambridge and the last two weeks even though my indicator said 4G I was getting nothing. It would flip back and forth from 4G to 3G to absolutely nothing. I called tech support and they said there was an urgent ticket up on the system to fix 4G in our area. Today, I actually seem to be getting decent speeds and a consistent connection.

    Off topic somewhat, when I go to Speakeasy.net to test my phone, it says I need Flash for my browser. I have Flash 10.2 installed and I get that message with either Firefox or the standard browser. Anyone have any ideas how I can get by this and test it with Speakeasy?

    I don't know what year you're in, but 10kbps is not pretty fast :p

    Come on- he clearly meant mbps. Anyway, I'm up a little in Boston to 6-8 Mbps. I have a sinking feeling Big is going to reduce these speeds after the marketing frenzy on lte passes.

    Easyyyyy killa...lol... Like zeze22 said, I meant Mbps. Just did a test, got 16Mbps down! That test is so up and down. But I do have a feeling VZW is going to pull speeds back a bit.

    Guys should list what app or site they are using to measure their speed.

    I just checked again and got almost the same score I got above, 28Mbps and 4.2 Mbps - speakeasy

    15.85 Download 1.96 upload speeds. I've been downloading the internet for the past few days so I am probably throttled. This was on Speakeasy. On CNet's test though, didn't test faster than 5 down.
