    I must be a moron, I can't figure out the screen shot thing.

    So, my speeds seem to stay steady at 5MB/s down, and just under 3MB/s upload.

    It was fun today comparing our 4G speeds today when I saw some friends with Evo's on Spring .... they had like 46kbps with only 3G service... they were drooling!

    Yea, Verizon's LTE is definitely miles ahead of other carriers' so called "4G".

    Northwest suburb of chicago, downliad 8-9 Mbps, upload 5-7 Mbps. Definitely a lot faster than AT&T so called 4G....Download 1-1.5Mbps, why would one stay with AT&T?

    Posted this a while back. I'm still getting close to the same speed but 4G has become spotty in some areas.

    Where are you located? It seems way too slow for LTE.

    Live in Tucson and travel to Phoenix frequently for work. The Verizon 3g in Tucson is horrible and slow. It is suppose to be upgraded soon though.

    Phoenix is suppose to be 4g town. But I've certainly never seen the speeds you all have posted. I'm back up there next week, so I'll try again.

    Would it be an issue with my phone?

    4G in the Raleigh, NC area is on a few days ahead of schedule. It was to be on Thrusday 7/21, but it's live now around my job and I am pulling 12/4.

    It's much better than the .39/.11 that I was getting with 3G. I am very pleased.

    If I drive another .5 miles down the road, I can pull around 30+ Mbps, damn tower is just a little further from my house!

    I typically get about 6 to 6.5 Mbps down and 5 to 5.5 up. Pretty much the same readings at home and at NYC JFK airport (a bit higher at JFK actually). But these speeds do pretty much anything I need. No more buffering - hooray!

    This is my highest test, it's typically between 10-20Mbps...

    The insanely fast speed was near the outer windows of a store near downtown Houston, TX. The rest show how it compares to my UVerse Wifi... AT&T sucks. All tests done indoors, the two most recent are in Spring, TX, on the fringe of the 4G coverage area.

    I've tried different servers and my manager at work has a Thunderbolt and gets 35+download every time! I can't break 8, not even letting him do the same thing on my Charge that he does on his TB. I'm starting to think something is wrong with me phone, bc I get 7 down and he gets at least 35, he blows me away in browser speed too. Kinda embarrassing lol.

    Hmm, there's something wrong with your phone. Your phone cannot be 5 times slower than his!

    Ok I have discovered there is defiantly something defective in the Charge radios (both 3G and 4G). I thought it was just my phone because I could never connect to 4G (very rare) and I live in a very prime NYC location..The other problem is 3G always goes in and out. Now I've had over 10+ smartphones with no problems of 3G EVER in my area. the replacement phone is just as bad...

    Finally got 4G to work in my living area. I was shocked because even 3G is spotty where I'm at! I get 9.76 Mbps down 1.3Mbps up!!! with a ping of 199!!!

    Those high end results are sick!! I'm in SE Hamilton County and NW Indy and have only gotten above 15Mbs/sec once. I usually pull about 11/down and 4-5/up.
    What part of town are you in?

    I'll post a screen of my results soon...

    Well, I found out just how much of a difference different servers can prove to be! The lower speeds below are from Carmel's and the higher from Indy's servers. The relative distance is the same, so I'm not sure the reason for the glaringly obvious difference...

    I don't know how much this affects the results of the test, but the app seems to think that i'm on the Secaucus, NJ tower, but I'm actually in Rochester, NY. So I would think trying to use a server about 250 miles away would affect my results. Using those nj servers, it reads around 10 mbps. Manually selecting my Rochester servers, I fluctuate between 3-6 mbps. Seems a little low to me.
