    Results vary across the board. I've seen this although haven't run into it myself. Not a bad thing those speeds are great any way you look at it. I've never been convinced of that app.

    I'd try different tests from a few different sites and average them once complete. dslr reports and speakeasy are 2 I use.

    I've used Speedtest several times and average about 14-15 mbps download. Fastest I've seen was about 21mbps down, but a friend of mine got 35 or so a few weeks ago.

    I can live with the down speeds, but I've never seen 14mbps UP. If its true I'm stoked, mabey no one has 4g around my house or I'm getting all of VZW bandwith!! Good suggestion on the other sites, I'll give it a try

    I live just north of Boston and actually like to use speedtest.net often "just to see" what I get. For those more familiar with the area, most of my testing is in the Lynn, Salem, Peabody, and Danvers communities. I average 18mbps down with a high of 30.53 and 6mbps up with a high of 11.89.

    I also play with the speedtest.net app on my phone and run tests pretty regularly. Around town (Sacramento) I have seem everything from 6 mbps down to 35 mbps down. Uploads are almost always in the 12 mbps range but do vary once in a while 1 or 2 mbps either up or down. I have even ran speedtest several times in a row while sitting in the exact same spot and have gotten drastically different results. Not sure if its the speedtest or the 4g network or a combination of both that gives me such sporadic results. Real life use though I have no complaints about the speed!

    You can also change the server and get better results. If I use the closest one i get 10 down 7 up. The server is a no name telephone company out on the middle of nowhere. If i chose farther away but a bigger known company like comcast i can get 25 down 17 up sitting in the same spot with the same 2 bar signal. Down fall is the ping gets worse.

    I was right outside of Central Park in Manhattan at the time. Sadly, my girlfriend did not share my enthusiasm for the crazy speeds I was getting.

    Every full strength 4g signal I've ever had has looked like this. Thought it was normal.

    It varies for me. At work (2 bars usually) I get about 11 down and 6 up. At home (usually 4 bars) I get about 22 down on average and 11-12 up. Today it was 18 down and 18 up!

    I vary anywhere from 4 to 30 down and 0 to 20 up; usually averaging around 15Mbps down and 5Mbps up maybe. ping is usually 50-70ms. I've seen a ping of around 40 once or twice.

    Although real world tasks are what matter most: I've peaked around 2.5MB/s downloading files. However, I average around 1.5MB/s down (tethered). I too question how meaningful speedtest apps are...

    I am on fringe 4G though and get better speeds closer to town. This is pretty much exactly 10x as fast as the 3G I am used too.

    At these speeds, I don't see how it's possible to have a 2GB monthly limit, even without tethering...

    This is my best result so far with full 4G ( I was really surprised :O ). I haven't seen the Upload being faster than the Download in my tests. BTW, how do you guys get the view of the results without the speedometer?

    wowza! weird I see so many speedtests much better than mine, but with lower pings... I'd like to see those who get these extremely high speedtests to actually try downloading/uploading some large files to see what they really get...

    If you go to 'history' I think, you'll get a list of all your tests... maybe that's what you were asking about...

    ive seen upload as fast as download a few different times. depends on the area i guess

    in the south bay area, i get around 20 Mb down and about 10 Mb up

    in orange county, specifically Irvine, the reception is really spotty, but i generally get 10-15 Mb down, and similar up

    Yeah, it fluctuates for me in North Jersey. That was a bout 10 minutes from my house (in the opposite direction of NYC). There's probably a strong cell site near there lol. I usually get about 15Mb/s Download.
