    I'm getting an average of 2.5mbps down and 385kbps up in middle of nowhere Oklahoma. This download speed is 3 times better than I was getting on my iPhone 4(1mbps average) but I haven't had it for a few weeks so something could have changed.

    jesus christ dude.

    Hey have you tried the APN trick? you should try it and let us know, since you're in the 4G area.

    I enabled the APN for tethering. Is there something else I should try?

    I'm getting about 1/4th the speeds I got with my N1. In Orlando, FL got around 2-3mbps with N1, getting about .3-.5mbps with Atrix. Weird thing is, things do seem to load faster with the N1, not just rendering either, it almost seems as if the speed tests are just wrong. I dunno. When I go to Network on About Phone it says HSDPA.

    They way I understand it is that the N1 is testing 4x faster in regards to downloads, and is faster overall in rendering web pages. Also, the Atrix's download tests seem slow, despite connection to an HSDPA network.

    Sorry, I was in a rush so I just spit out a bunch of words. When it comes to speedtests the N1 is much faster, getting speeds from 2-3 mbps. While I am only getting about .3-.5 mbps on the atrix, the atrix loads much faster than my N1. Th only thing im really upset about on the phone are the data speed.

    Wowza...that's some sad 3G speed you got for the N1 there :/ is that NORMAL for you? :thinking: Well the Atrix is def an improvement over the N1 if you're noticing like a 15000x speed :D lol

    my first thought was that he was running a Nexus One made for TMobile AWS 3g and not the 850/1900 AT&T version.

    I've used an AT&T 3g compatible Nexus One in the same area as him and was getting around 2 mbps down

    I haven't speed tested mine but I tested the one at my AT&T store and it averaged 2.5-3.5 Mbps down and .3 up. Mine is charging and I will post some screenshots later

    Coming from an iPhone 4, right here in the same room. Activated the new Atrix and my Speeds are Twice as slow, almost 3 times slower.. it's amazingly slow data speeds. Tried the APN trick and that didn't do a thing.. =/

    Not Rooted...no Wi-Fi. The only thing I can think was that it was the time of night with very little use on the network. I just ran the test again again sitting at my desk and I am gettting the following:

    1.41 MBPS Down
    .46 MBPS Up
    Ping 147 ms

    The phone definitely feels slower today. But even today - it is worlds faster than my old Blackberry Storm!

    I tested a store model and my iPhone 4 side to side and they both had similar speeds overall...

    I wonder if they did something to the store model?

    I'm getting around 130-150 Kbps UPLOAD speeds, and around 800 Kbps download, and i've never once EVER seen these kinds of speeds before, the last time i saw speeds like this i was on T-Mobile.

    interesting, i set my atrix and my coworkers iphone 4 side by side, set the server to the same on both and consistently got about 1200 kbps down 300 kbps up on the atrix and about the opposite 300kbps down 1200kbps up on coworkers phone. Both inside our office in his window cube with 2 bars signal. Raleigh, NC btw.

    Speed tests w/ 4G, less than impressive IMHO

    Atrix 4G - wifi off
    2782 down 342 up ping 481
    1531 down 272 up ping 310
    3244 down 327 up ping 315
    3017 down 340 up ping 492

    Nexus One - Wifi off
    2995 down 1293 up ping 147
    3258 down 1310 down ping 139
    236 down 957 up ping 171 (poor location and time I think)
    385 down 712 up ping 172
    309 down 1272 up ping 170

    Interesting, at least the phone itself is super speedy.
