    So today I took my atrix 4g back and got the 2. The camera on the 2 is pretty awesome and so Is the huge nice screen While driving home I did a few speed test. Suprisingly I saw speeds up in to 8 down, almost 9 to 10 Way faster then what my atrix 4g was getting. I ran these speed test at least 10 times with only 1 or 2 speeds that were 1 or 2 down.. Now don't mistake this to verizon to tmobile 4g but it's showing that AT&T are slowly making improvements.

    I've been very impressed with data speed on the Atrix 2 myself! Typically average 8-12 Mb! The first time I seen the results I was shocked! With my OG Atrix i would average 2.5-4 Mb.

    Very happy with this phone so far! :D

    Go figure. I'm in one of Florida's biggest cities, Miami, and your speeds blow mines out of the water. Your getting double the speeds I get. Perhaps the fact that there are so many users on my end compared to you make the difference?

    mmm maybe but remember the atrix 2 has a better radio then the original one. In my web design class I used to get no service in their now I have like 2 4g bars. I guess that radio makes a difference.

    Ok, I'm proud to report that I'm finally getting some nice 4G speeds. Ran a few speed tests last night and today and I hit 10.5, 9.6, 8.3 and 8.74.

    I thought that since I was running the tests late at night, around 2 AM maybe there was very little usage. So I tried today at work around 11AM with my co-workers and I was still averaging about 6 mbps down.

    All the speeds were down. The upload speed in ever scenario was at most 1.10 mbps since its of course capped by AT&T.

    OK, just for fun, I installed the speedtest.net app. I say for fun, because I live in an area that just got 3G this summer! :eek:

    Was I shocked when two of my tests came in at between 5-to-6 down! I tried various locations around the inside of my house, getting as low as 1.1 and as high as 5.8. I even tested a couple via wifi, and those came in at about 2.4.

    To say the least, I am pleased with that!

    tim :cool:

    edit: I was surprised to see one of my up speeds at 1564, as some were saying it was capped at 1.

    I tend to get faster speed early in the morning rather then afternoon and evenings.

    Just for fun, take 2: I did another test today, this time using the massive wifi capacity at work. I thought I might melt the phone: 14.5 down, 10.7 up! This phone is obviously built with some pretty good stuff.

    Well, I'm not sure what it all means, but my results were on the first run:

    5199 - Down
    1114 - Up
    141 - Pings

    Good, bad or mediocre?

    I was downloading a podcast the other morning on my Atrix 2 and I actually got 17mb/sec! Typically in some areas I could get up to 8mb/s. I must have found a quiet time. Not too shabby for less than LTE.

    Highest one i've gotten so far, i usually avg from 4-9mbps. And then in some cases but not rare i get speeds like these:
    Download: 13.22mbps
    Upload: 1.09

    I did round them to the nearest tenth or so. Here is an image of the actual thing:
